Molex Inc. in Lisle, Ill., is introducing the XRC circular connectors with circular sealed plugs and receptacles for heavy-duty applications in construction equipment, marine, recreational vehicles, transportation, and agriculture. XRC stands for extra rugged circular. These rugged electronics connectors are available in an 18-shell/14-circuit size and 24-shell/31-circuit size. In addition, the 24-shell size, 31-circuit electronic connectors have a wire seal imprinted, instead of embossed or engraved, for fast installation. A backshell for the circular connector is also available for use with the 24-shell size products. The backshells for these sealed connectors snap onto the XRC housing after terminal assembly for increased strain relief. Designed to meet IP67 standards, the XRC rugged connector plugs and receptacles protect against the ingress of dust, water, and other contaminants to maintain the integrity of the mated pair. Plugs have a quick-disconnect bayonet latch to provide quick and easy connections with reduced installation and service time, while ensuring accurate mating depth. XRC plugs and receptacles are available in standard and reverse gender. These connectors can be used for in-line or panel-mount applications.
