Molex has launched a Micro Power Distribution Box (µPDB) Sealed Module with two versions: standard and customisable. These are compact automotive power distribution boxes that provide a junction point for both power switching and also circuit protection for vehicles or subsystems within wiring architectures.
These new µPDBs feature a connectorised system that eliminates hand-wiring, a full seal with an IP6K7 NEMA rating, a small footprint and light weight, standard connector configurations, and a modular customisable design. With these boxes, customers can add more electronics to vehicles while drastically cutting down on the length of wire runs in the design.
"These new µPDBs are particularly useful where additional power or circuitry is needed in a vehicle," said Rand Wilburn, global product manager, Molex. "They can also be used when primary PDB space has been exceeded, or to isolate power circuits from other components."
Compared to other products on the market, Molex µPDB Sealed Modules provide significant cost reductions to existing solutions, a smaller and lighter package, a modular design making implementation easier, a simpler attachment method, and a complete seal.
