Molex Launches the BradConnectivity(TM) Ultra-Lock(TM) 8-pole Connection System.

New connection system provides versatility, convenience and security

LISLE, Ill. -- Molex Incorporated (NASDAQ: MOLX AND MOLXA), announces the Ultra-Lock[TM] 8-Pole Connection System featuring the convenience and security of an Ultra-Lock connection in a higher pin count to handle a broader array of applications such as encoders, resolvers, safety light curtains, trainable sensors and instrumentation.

Designed for performance and reliability, the Ultra-Lock[TM] Connection System incorporates a thread-less push-to-lock connection that simplifies assembly and eliminates downtime related to intermittent signals due to loose connections. Its unique radial seal design ensures a consistent, operator independent seal every time. Fewer intermittent signals mean less downtime, more uptime and better productivity.

"Control devices like encoders have higher pin counts than proximity sensors. We designed the new Ultra-Lock 8-pole connector to give our customers the versatility of up to 8 connection points for devices such as encoders, resolvers, trainable sensors and instrumentation," said Product Manager, John Sullivan. "The cordsets and receptacles offer the same sure sealing and integrity of the unique Ultra-Lock radial seal and locking mechanism that the industry has grown to expect from BradConnectivity[TM]. We believe that it is the fastest, easiest and most secure connection ever introduced."

The Ultra-Lock 8-pole uses innovative push-to-lock technology to make quick M12 connections by "pushing down" to connect and "pulling up" to disconnect. The unique O-ring radial seal is operator-independent, so there's no chance of over tightening or under tightening. There is also no twisting or turning like standard threaded connectors. The results are the elimination of downtime, increased productivity and lower costs reducing installation time by 90 percent.
