Molex Launches the BradConnectivity(TM) Micro-Change® M12 12-Pole Connecter



New connection system has a broad product range

Lisle, IL - May 27, 2008 - Molex Incorporated (NASDAQ: MOLX AND MOLXA), introduces the Micro-Change® M12 12-Pole Connection System featuring the convenience and security of an Ultra-Lock(TM) connection in an even higher pin count to handle a broader array of applications such as encoders, resolvers, safety light curtains, trainable sensors and instrumentation.

The new Micro-Change M12 12-pole connectors are offered in shielded and unshielded versions. Micro-Change M12-pole cordsets are IP67/68, the Ultra-Lock versions are IP69k rated and all are designed to withstand harsh industrial environments. The cable is UL/CSA approved and halogen free. The product is available as either a M12 standard or Ultra-Lock connection system. In addition the Ultra-Lock 12-pole uses innovative push-to-lock technology to make quick M12 connections by "pushing down" to connect and "pulling up" to disconnect. The unique O-ring radial seal is operator independent, so there's no chance of over tightening or under tightening. There is also no twisting or turning like standard threaded connectors. The results are the elimination of downtime, increased productivity and lower costs reducing installation time by 90 percent.

Designed for performance and reliability, the Ultra-lock Connection System incorporates a simple push-to-lock connection that simplifies assembly and eliminates downtime related to intermittent signals due to loose connections. Its unique radial seal design ensures a consistent, operator independent seal every time. Fewer intermittent signals mean less downtime, more uptime and better productivity.
