14-circuit hybrid connection system

Paul Boughton

Molex Incorporated further expands its Stac64 product family with the introduction of the 14-circuit hybrid connection system.

The 14-circuit Stac64 hybrid system comprises a 14-circuit hybrid receptacle connector and mating 14-circuit vertical and right-angle headers to meet the increasing terminal requirements for expanding in-vehicle functionality in automotive and commercial vehicles.

Typical applications include in-car entertainment systems, interior lighting and navigation, power seat and door zone modules, and instrument panel clusters.

Designed originally as a standard product system based on USCAR-2 Class II mechanical and electrical performance characteristics for unsealed connector applications, the Stac64 design has since secured new patents relating to the stackable header.

The Stac64 stackable connection system allows OEMs greater design flexibility to support both low-level signal requirements as well as power applications upwards of 30.0A. It also allows the manufacturers to use header assemblies as stand-alone components or to gang multiple headers together to support a large range of signal and power needs for devices and modules.
