Molex Incorporated recently announced the availability of Mizu-P25 Miniature Waterproof Connectors. The space-saving 2.50mm (.098”) pitch Mizu-P25 connector is the first and only sealed wire-to-wire system of its size in the market certified to the IP67 standard to help ensure the highest levels of protection. Mizu-P25 connectors are available in a low-voltage version rated up to 125 volts and a high-voltage version rated up to 250 volts.
“Designed in Japan, the word ‘mizu’ means water in Japanese, and the ‘P’ designates the Mizu-P25 connectors as dust-proof and water-proof,” says Yumi Fukui, global product manager, Molex. “The IP67 rating optimises mating and signal integrity in rugged environments, making the Mizu-P25 connector ideal for demanding performance requirements in motorcycles, vending machines, air conditioners, and any application packing more and more electronics into increasingly tighter spaces.”
Mizu-P25 connectors incorporate colours coding of housings, low-insertion terminal design, and other design features to simplify operator assembly. A raised-body male terminal design provides polarisation to prevent accidental mismating. The integral watertight seal stopper and positive locks ensure secure mating retention. A cap lock system provides low terminal insertion force and high sealing performance. The spring-beam design affords high pressure and small deflection in high-vibration applications.
“The space-saving Mizu-P25 system is helping Molex customers in a wide range of industries fit wire-to-wire solutions through smaller spaces, holes and hinges. Both the low and high voltage versions provide some of the smallest mated diameters of any connector system on the market today,” adds Fukui.
