SL Modular Connectors

Molex's SL modular system provides a wide range of variations and is compatible with some C-Grid and KK products

Image of Molex's SL Modular Connectors Molex's comprehensive SL modular connector system includes high-temperature LCP headers that are reflow-process capable to enable the automation of termination on PCBs and reduce labor costs. As electronic components decrease in size and increase in mobility, customers in consumer, automotive, and medical industries need added assurance that terminals will not back out and that plugs and receptacles will not disengage in high-vibration environments. The SL modular system has an integrated terminal position assurance (TPA) lock that more than doubles the retention force of terminals in their housings. The connector position assurance (CPA) feature reinforces the positive-lock mating interface, ensuring the thumb latch will not disengage due to high vibration or moving parts.

With constantly changing demands in the consumer products marketplace, designers need to respond quickly but available components often create design limitations. The SL modular connector system provides a wide range of variations and is compatible with some C-Grid and KK products, making it a versatile solution to meet a wide range of design needs. It is available in out-of-the-box standard cable assemblies as well as pre-crimps.
