Molex - CMC Hybrid Connectors: Standard and Power Versions


CMC = Connecteurs Modulaires pour Calculateurs
CMC = Connectors Modular for Controllers

CMC Connectors - sealed, high-density, modular and cost-effective connection system for heavy-duty applications

The CMC connector family from Molex is a sealed, high-density connection system developed for the transportation industry. It is a cost-effective, modular, hybrid system that fits with various headers.

 Standard version CMC hybrid connectors hold two different terminal sizes, 0.635mm (.025") and 1.50mm (.059"). Power version CMC hybrid connectors hold three different terminal sizes, 0.635mm (.025"), 1.50mm (.059") and 2.80mm (.110"). Both connector versions run at operating temperatures between -40 and +125°C. The CMC modular system offers various color codings associated with mechanical keying for easy mating with the header. A wire cap guides the wires away from the connector either to the right or to the left. Robust CP terminals are specially designed to perform in high-conductivity applications and in harsh environments.

In addition to the existing Standard CMC Header range in 48-, 53-, 80- and 96-circuits, Molex is developing 112- and 32-circuit versions to provide a complete CMC solution to the transportation market. The development of both headers will complement the existing Molex CMC range since they mates with existing Molex CMC receptacles, Series 64319 and 64320.

The CMC connection system can be used for various transportation vehicles, such as cars, trucks, busses, agricultural equipment, motorcycles and marine equipment. CMC is used in various power-train applications such as engine-control units, compartment applications, gear boxes, electronic-park breaks and suspension controllers.
