Molex CyClone Panel-to-Panel Connector System rated for 10,000 mating cycles

Molex has introduced a hermaphroditic CyClone Panel-to-Panel Connector System designed for secure high-mating cycle connections, the company said.

The CyClone connector modules offer 10,000 mating cycles for extreme durability in telecommunications, networking, consumer and industrial electronics.

Hermaphroditic CyClone connectors are ideal for applications requiring frequent mating between parts such as copiers, printers, networking hubs and servers, and automation and industrial machinery. Incorporating proven SL wire-to-wire receptacle technology, the CyClone Panel-to-Panel Connector System creates a panel-mounted solution for secure connector retention. The positive-lock SL housing ensures retention even in high-vibration environments by fastening the SL receptacle housing securely inside the CyClone–creating a panel-mount, high-mating-cycle solution.

The CyClone connector system increases operational efficiency and reduces customer inventories for added cost savings. This ensures compatibility and mate-ability with no changeover of different application tooling setups, since the system uses only one preset applicator machine.

Molex brings together innovation and technology to deliver electronic solutions to customers worldwide. With a presence in more than 40 countries, Molex offers a full suite of solutions and services for many markets, including data communications, consumer electronics, industrial, automotive, commercial vehicle and medical.
