Colour-paired connectors ensure correct mating connection

Molex has introduced the CP3.3 Wire-to-Wire Connector System, designed to allow multiple same-circuit connectors to be used in products ranging from electronics and white goods to industrial and medical applications.

The colour-paired connectors ensure correct mating connection, which also reduces the time needed to properly connect circuits during assembly. The connectors are fully polarized with an inertia lock that enhances user safety while preventing moisture seepage.

The CP 3.3 Wire-to-Wire Connector System is available in both single-row circuits (2, 3, 4 and 6) and dual-row circuits (4, 6, 8, 10 and 12) with current ratings from 2.0A to 7.5A.

“Electrical safety and speed of assembly are two important considerations in connectors, and the CP 3.3 Wire-to-Wire Connector System addresses both issues,” said Akihiro Tezuka, product manager, Molex. “The system ensures complete locking, and the colour coding system makes sure the right connection is made every time.”

The system also features a specially designed housing to prevent electrical shorting and an inertia lock on the receptacle to ensure a low-force locking system with both a tactile and audible click to a successful connection.
