Molex Introduces an Off-beat D-sub Earthing Connector That’s Sure to Be All the Rage

Molex recently released a new D-Sub Earthing Connector with one interesting quality that’s sure to stand out –its waterproof! That’s right, now you can be sure your IP66 and IP67 are protected from stray voltages and water invasion through a more secure connection to the earth.  Additionally, there is a cap attached to the connector that allows the connector to be IP protected; International Protection (IP) refers to the level of protection against penetration from foreign matters such as dust and water.

Regarding this newly added feature, Molex Product Manager Mario Urner had this to say:

"Mobile equipment such as base stations often operate in harsh environments and need flexible and fast installation and servicing. This means that the connections are exposed to the elements. The D-Sub Earthing Connector addresses the needs of fast installation and combines this with an industry known and robust form factor. This product is ideal for OEMs who are looking for a connector for mobile and exposed electrical equipment in challenging environments."

Molex’s D-Sub Earthing Connector displays such features as a 40.0A contact to an Earth cable and contains a metal sealing frame for easy rear installation. Two bolts attach to the connector, allowing it to be mounted directly onto the housing.

Earthing connectors provide electrical currents between the ground and a grounding/bonding system, which then connects the non-current-carrying metallic parts. These are important because they prevent user harm derived from direct contact with dangerous voltage. These devices are commonly found in households for usages with appliances, machinery and power tools; these are the power cords that have three prong plugs. Factories also use these systems to protect their machinery and equipment from static charges, thus ensuring factory workers remain safe from any harm.
