Mini-Fit® Blind Mate Interface (BMI) Connectors


Mini-Fit BMI connectors from Molex support 13.0 A current for high-current and high-density applications in wire-to-wire, wire-to-board, and board-to-board applications


Molex Connector Corporation's Mini-Fit® BMI connectors allow misalignment and provide "float" of up to 2.54 mm (.100") between mating surfaces for easy blind-mate connections. Mini-Fit BMI connectors are available in a full range of options for every application. Molex offers blind mate products for vertical and right-angle configurations, in single and dual-row versions, and in 4- to 24-circuit sizes. In addition, Mini-Fit BMI connectors utilize standard Mini-Fit® female and male crimp terminals.

Mini-Fit® BMI panel-mount receptacles are designed to float or self-align. The headers and plugs feature flanges that help to "gather" the mating receptacle. Molex offers two styles of BMI receptacles including a traditional receptacle (Series 42474) and an updated version, Mini-Fit BMI Slide-and-Lock, featuring a thumb latch to facilitate easy panel removal.
