SPOX Wire-to-Board and BMI Connectors

Molex introduces its SPOX wire-to-board and BMI connectors for pitch sizes from 2.5 mm to 5.08 mm

Image of Molex's SPOX™ Wire-to-Board and BMI ConnectorsMolex's SPOX family of wire-to-board connectors offers an extremely wide-variety of mating configurations for pitch sizes from 2.50 mm to 5.08 mm pitch. The name SPOX comes from the shape of the terminal, which is like a "spring box". This design style provides multiple points of contact, protects the mating interface area, and prevents fish-hooking from wires during handling. SPOX BMI connectors offer self-aligning features, a current rating up to 3.0 A and a pitch size of 2.54 mm (0.100"). This is one of the smallest blind-mate packages available for wire-to-wire and wire-to-board applications.

The unique low-profile design of the SPOX Blind-Mate Interface (BMI) allows for a mated stack distance of only 11 mm. Utilizing proven SPOX-style contacts for high-reliability, the products are suitable for situations requiring highly-reliable tin interfaces. The unique dual-row panel-mounting design provides rugged support for blind-mating applications and permits up to 3 mm of misalignment between connectors prior to engagement. Multiple pin counts permit design flexibility and provide for both power and signal circuitry. These dual-row 2.5 mm products are not intermateable with the conventional single-row 2.5 mm products.
