The compact Brad Nano-Change connectors are designed for industrial, aerospace, and defense sensor and actuator network connectivity, delivering superior reliability in tight spaces.

LISLE, IL -- Molex Inc. supports challenging industrial automation and aerospace and defense network connectivity with its compact Brad Nano-Change (M8) connectors. The rugged Nano-Change product line offers the "industry's broadest selection of space-saving connectors, cordsets, receptacles, inserts, splitters, and molded junction boxes for sensor and actuator applications."

"Secure network connectivity in harsh environments demands sealed connectors and cable assemblies that are up to the task," states Jimmy Adjunta, Product Manager, Molex. "Designed for device manufacturers and end users who need superior reliability, Brad Nano-Change connectors deliver total interoperability and rock-solid performance."

Complementing Molex Micro-Change connectors for M12 interfaces such as I/O junction blocks, Nano-Change connectors conform to the smaller M8 form factor standards. Sealed Nano-Change connectors are available in IP67 threaded or IP65 push-on versions. Gold-plated copper alloy contacts and phosphor bronze sockets ensure reliable, low-resistance performance. Providing robust performance in tight spaces, Nano-Change connectors minimize downtime and wiring by simplifying maintenance and installation.

Molex offers a comprehensive range of standard length cable assemblies. A variety of Nano-Change distribution boxes include the flexibility of 4-, 6-, 8-, or 10-port versions, single and dual I/O, and vertical or horizontal mounting. The fully potted housing ensures reliable performance in harsh environments. An anti-vibration feature prevents loss of connection even in high-vibration applications.

"Synonymous with quality the Brad brand safeguards customer investments in some of the world's toughest applications. The Nano-Change portfolio delivers that same trusted reliability to mission-critical network applications," adds Adjunta.

Molex is ITAR-compliant and registered with the U.S. Department of State. For more information on the Brad Nano-Change (M8) product line, please visit the company's Web site.
