Posted by Sean Severson on Jun 20, 2011

I designed, along with the Molex product managers, the 76650-0144 XRC™ (Extra Rugged) Circular Sealed Plug and Receptacle connector kit, This is a great, newer sealed (IP-67 protected) group of wire-to-wire electrical connector types, rated for 10 amps (18AWG) or 13 amps (16-14AWG) available in standard or reverse gender for custom polarization. This kit also offers the 14-circuit size connectors of free hanging receptacles and plugs.

These components are perfect for marine, agriculture, transportation, heavy-equipment and recreational vehicle applications designed to protect against the ingress of dust, water and other contaminants to maintain the integrity of the mated pair. Unique features include new low-insertion-force stamped terminals providing an economical drop-in replacement interchangeable with competitor connector housings. Connector Plugs feature a quick-disconnect bayonet latch providing quick and easy connections with reduced installation and service time while ensuring accurate mating depth.
