Interconnect solutions provider Molex Inc. has released its new Woodhead MAX-LOC Plus Shielded Cord-Grip assemblies featuring a nickel-plated aluminum housing and shielding ring for EMI/RFI protection.
According to the company, the assemblies enable original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and end-users to connect high-power electrical currents directly to an application with an exterior mounting enclosure, simplifying the installation process for high-volume, cost-sensitive programs. In addition, the IP67 and IP69K-rated assemblies are ideal for high-frequency switched-mode power supply (SMPS) applications in harsh environments such as those found in the industrial automation, aerospace and defense, alternative energy and commercial vehicle industries.
“Noise generated by electronic devices can be very disruptive, causing system failures on power lines and wireless connections that are in close proximity, especially in rugged conditions,” Tony Quebbemann, product manager at Molex Inc., said. “For instance, commercial vehicle OEMs were looking for a lower cost shielding and sealing gland that would stand up to both on- and off-road demands and the MAX-LOC Plus more than meets their requirements.”
