Mini50™ Unsealed Connection Systems

Delivering 50% space savings over traditional USCAR 0.64mm connectors with smaller terminals to fit more signals into vehicle interiors, the Mini50 ™ Unsealed Connector System is approved as the industry's onlyUSCAR 050 interface.

The Mini50™ unsealed, wire-to-board connection system offers customers reduced package sizes compared to conventional 0.64 mm connection systems, with applied cost savings and enhanced reliability. Mini50 connectors provide reduced overall harness weight and cost savings by allowing wire-harness customers to crimp and process smaller wire gauges versus traditional 0.64 mm terminal systems.

Current configurations are available in single-row, 4- and 8-circuit versions and a dual-row, 12-circuit version. The Mini50 unsealed wire-to-board system allows device manufacturers to package circuits in a smaller space by utilizing smaller pin and terminal sizes while reducing costs. The Molex Mini50 4/8/12 circuit interface was chosen by USCAR as the standard 050 interface. The Mini50 4, 8 and 12 circuit connectors are available in through-hole and SMT versions and meet USCAR standards.
