LISLE, Ill., 12 Aug. 2015. Molex Inc. in Lisle, Ill., is introducing the ML-XT sealed connection system to minimize electrical failures in grueling commercial vehicle and other mobile applications.

Rated IP68 and J2030 power-wash capable, the ML-XT system features a one-piece plug housing and seal design that is bonded permanently using two-shot liquid silicone rubber molding. This ensures retention of the plug seal and prevents the seal from rolling during unmating and mating. It also eliminates the risk of a lost or forgotten seal during installation and maintenance.

The ML-XT rear seals are made from high consistency rubber for greater tear resistance and protection during terminal insertion and extraction. Wedgelocks lock the terminals in position.

The ML-XT system comes in 2-, 4-, 6-, and 18-circuit options. Molex XRC terminals deliver current ratings to 13 amps while the nine color-coded housings enable visual mating of harnesses. For more information contact Molex online at www.molex.com.
