The MX150™ is a high-performance connector system ideal for SAE-style wire in single- and dual-row configurations for challenging, rugged and harsh applications

The MX150 Sealed Connector System is designed to meet the need for a rugged, environmentally sealed connector system supporting both low-level signal and power applications up to 22.0A. Designed for on-engine automotive to off-road construction equipment applications, the MX150 Sealed Connector System's reduced package size is ideal for typical SAE-style wire

The innovative matte-sealed connector is based upon the 1.50mm (.060") ISO blade-type terminal system, available with pre-Tin, selective Gold and pure Silver contact finishes. This design eliminates the need to purchase, handle and crimp individual wire seals to lower applied cost. The matte-seal design is a single silicone-based seal with individual wire openings and a seal cap to protect, securely retain and provide strain relief to the seal. The cost-effective connector design features all-in-one plug and receptacle housings with pre-assembled, wire and interfacial connector seals. Integral terminal position assurance (TPA) and optional connector position assurance (CPA) components eliminate time-consuming and costly assembly operations. Completing the application is as simple as crimping the appropriate terminal, inserting the crimped terminal lead and seating the TPA to its final lock position. No additional components are required.

Tooling solutions include FineAdjust crimp-press applicators for high-volume production, as well as hand tools for low-volume production and field repairs.

Features and Benefits (Standard and Power Connector)
Reduced 3.50mm (.138") pitch housing design Supports single-row configurations for 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 circuits and dual-row configurations for 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 20 and 16 circuit hybrid
Pre-assembled housings, seals, TPA components and matte-seal shipped as single assembly Applied labor and cost savings
Protective matte seal cap Protects, securely retains, and provides strain relief to wire seal interface
Unused circuits can be blocked using plastic seal plugs Facilitates flexibility of sealing unused circuits without adding complexity to part numbers and customer inventory
Simple crimp, poke, and plug application No need to crimp individual wire seals
Easy terminal extraction and insertion Quick, low-cost field repairs using common screw driver, needle nose pliers, and terminal extraction tool
High connector and terminal retention forces Exceed USCAR-2 Rev 4 specifications. Offers high reliability under extreme conditions
Integral Terminal Position Assurance (TPA) Assures that crimped terminal leads are properly locked into connector (TPA will not seat into final locked position and connector system will not latch if terminal is not locked properly into position)
Integral locking latch with secondary, pre-loaded connector position assurance (CPA) option Confirms positive mating of connector and proper latching (CPA will not move to final locked position if connector is not latched)
Audible and tactile clicks on insertion, extraction, and mating Feedback facilitates reliable mating and terminal loading and removal
Superior electrical and mechanical performance capabilities Surpasses performance of most mature competitive products in market
Conforms to USCAR-20 (FCLT) / USCAR-2 Rev 4 / USCAR-21 For use in on-engine, high vibration, under-hood and under-chassis environments at class 3 temperatures
Integral, matte and interfacial seals designed and tested to IEC IP6K7 and IP6K9K and SAE USCAR-2 Rev 4 standards Exceeds "waterproof" demands as a true sealed connector system tested under submersed conditions in various fluids
