|Next-generation sealed modular connectors.
Lisle, IL — Building on the success of its CMC connection system, Molex Inc. is introducing its second generation sealed, hybrid, high-density and modular connector system. The CMX family uses a new CTX terminal system with a fully protected seal to deliver the ultimate in sealing performance.
The CMX connector system is especially suitable for transportation powertrain applications, such as those found in engine control units, automatic gear boxes, suspension controllers and electrical parking brakes.

According to the company, the next-generation CMX connection system offers significant improvements in product performance while remaining cost-competitive. The unusual feature for all new CMX connectors is the sophisticated design of the interfacial seal protection, which ensures that the connector remains protected before mating, and during mating and unmating operations.
The first two circuit sizes of the CMX family, which meet the demands of the transportation market, is a compact 5-row 55-circuit CMX connector and a 5-row 65-circuit CMX connector.
Both CMX connectors support low and medium current using 0.635mm (0.025-in.) and 1.50mm (0.059-in.) CTX terminals. The new matte seal is designed for the ultimate high performing sealing function of the CTX terminals and can be used with ISO and JASO wires. The CTX terminal system has a clean-body type design that performs well in harsh environments, while serving low-, medium- and high-current applications. The use of high conductivity copper alloy allows excellent stress relaxation and current carrying properties.
