Molex Mini-Fit Plus HCS™ Connectors

Molex Mini-Fit Plus HCS™ 4.20mm Connectors deliver up to 13.0A with extended durability for higher-current, mid-range power applications, without increasing design footprints. The Mini-Fit Plus HCS product family consists of crimp terminals, headers and PCB receptacles. Mini-Fit Plus HCS male and female crimp terminals are produced from a proprietary, high-current alloy, providing enhanced high-performance current-carrying capability. The female contacts feature a patented, elongated dimple design, longer wipe lengths, and increased contact area over standard Mini-Fit terminals. All standard Mini-Fit right angle headers (Series 5569, 42404, 43810, 46991) are compatible with Mini-Fit Plus HCS terminals. Mini-Fit Plus HCS Connectors are capable of up to 100 mating cycles in higher current environments. Molex Mini-Fit Plus HCS Connectors are now available as Dual Row Vertical Headers.


Features
  • Crimp terminals produced from a proprietary, high-current alloy; rated up to 13.0A per circuit
