Woodhead MAX-LOC

Molex has announced the launch of the Woodhead MAX-LOC Plus Shielded Cord-Grip Assemblies featuring a nickel-plated aluminium housing and shielding ring for superior electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) protection.

The assemblies enable OEMs and end-users to connect high-power electrical currents directly to an application with an exterior mounting enclosure, simplifying the installation process for high-volume, cost-sensitive programs.  

The assemblies also meet IP67 and IP69K ratings making them ideal for high-frequency switched-mode power supply applications in harsh environments such as those found in the industrial automation; aerospace and defence; alternative energy and commercial vehicles industries.

'Noise generated by electronic devices can be very disruptive, causing system failures on power lines and wireless connections that are in close proximity, especially in rugged conditions,' said Tony Quebbemann, product manager at Molex.

'For instance, commercial vehicle OEMs were looking for a lower cost shielding and sealing gland that would stand up to both on- and off-road demands and the MAX-LOC Plus more than meets their requirements.'
