Reducing harness assembly lead time improves safety for OEM cable assembly
Connectors, Switches & EMECH
Molex has introduced the MUO 2.5 Termination Connector, created to replace closed-end (CE) terminals. As well as reducing cable assembly time for OEMs, it also improves processing time and reliability.
“Traditional CE terminals can cause wire damage and cannot be disassembled after installation,” said Yujiro Enomoto, global product manager, Molex. “These innovative connectors move the wire grounding process to the final step in assembly, which will provide a more precise connection at a lower assembly cost.”
The termination connector provides a flexible and cost-effective way to deliver an effective connection, and simplify the assembly methods in such markets as washing machines and refrigeration, and in fan heaters, water heaters and air conditioners in the HVAC market.
