Mini50™ unsealed connector system

Delivering 50% space savings over traditional USCAR 0.64mm connectors with smaller terminals to fit more signals into vehicle interiors, the Molex Mini50™ Unsealed Connector System is approved as the industry’s only USCAR 050 interface.

 

Molex Mini50™ Unsealed Connector System

Features/Applications

Features Applications
  • Board alignment and retention features
    • Simplifies header placement on the PCB and retains the header to the PCB during soldering operation(s). Protects adhesive joints during connector mating and unmating
  • High-temperature thermoplastic housings
    • Withstands infrared (IR) and wave lead-free solder processing per ES-40000-5013 Molex specification, up to a maximum temperature of +260°C
  • Female terminal wire grips for wires 0.35mm2 and smaller
    • Reduces wire size, and provides weight, space, and cost savings versus 0.64mm interfaces
  • Three polarization options
    • Enables limited customization and enforces like-tolike mating via three discrete mechanical, visual, and colored polarizations
  • Connector position assurance (CPA) feature available
    • An optional mating assurance feedback device that prevents accidental un-mating
  • CTX50 terminal wire grip design
    • Offers harness manufacturers the ability to reduce wire gauge sizes while maintaining retention strength
  • Addition of 2 circuit-size SMT headers and receptacles
    • Delivers the only two-circuit connector with a 0.50mm terminal interface in the industry. Tested to full USCAR specifications. Enhances design flexibility
  • Designed and tested to USCAR 050 specifications
    • Industry’s only interface that meets USCAR 050 specifications. Offers from 4 to 24 circuits. Larger circuit versions also comply with USCAR specifications
  • 50% smaller than USCAR 0.64mm unsealed interfaces
    • Minimizes PCB footprint for design flexibility and space saving
  • Independent secondary lock (ISL) terminal-retention feature
    • Secures terminal inside the housing; one piece design for applied cost savings
  • Orientation features molded into the header
    • Provides wire-routing and module-design flexibility for both vertical and right-angle connectors. Retains the header to the PCB during the soldering process
  • Headliners
  • Clusters and Navigation
  • Radios
  • Cameras and Sensors
  • HVAC
  • Switches
  • Lighting
  • Mirrors
