Increased automation offering

Distrelec has added over 100 Molex industrial products, strengthening its standing in the industrial automation sector. Six different Molex product options are offered from inventory, resulting in expedited lead times and next-day delivery in selected countries. Product options include: mPm DIN valve connectors; MPIS passive junction boxes; GWconnect heavy duty connectors; and Brad mini-change, micro-change (M12) and nano-change (M8) connectors.

Noteworthy additions to the portfolio include IP67-rated M12 circular straight-to-straight male-to-male connectors for use in industrial automation applications requiring secure signals and current transmission. These connectors boast a double-ended industrial cordset, four poles and green 5m long weld-slag oil-resistant (WSOR) cable with 22 wire size (AWG). Similarly, Molex’s Brad M8 and M12 single-ended IP67-rated cordsets with knurled hex nuts feature five poles and female (straight) to pigtail orientation, with black 5m long 22 AWG unshielded WSOR cable.

Distrelec’s head of product management and supplier marketing, David Wood, said: “These Molex products are designed for harsh environments, come in various termination styles and provide cost-effective benefits through a single-cable solution.”
