L1NK 396 Connectors

Molex’s connectors provide securing for terminals by reducing terminal back-out

Image of Molex L1NK 396 ConnectorMolex L1NK 396 connectors prevent the common problem of mismating with their unique keying design by offering a clear audible click for connection assurance. There are two to six circuit sizes available with a 3.96 mm pitch.

When assembling connectors, terminal back-outs may occur, resulting in end-product failure. The TPA design of L1Nk 396 connectors provides security for the terminals inside the receptacle, preventing failure in end products by reducing terminal back-out.

When a design is in progress, engineers have found challenges with finding alternative direct drop-in replacements for current PCB designs. The L1NK 396 headers offer a complete direct drop-in replacement on the PCB to JST VH.

Purchasing and procurement teams are often looking for fewer items on their bill of materials while providing the same value. The L1NK 396 connector system provides both a V0/GW combination material that provides fewer items on a bill of materials and allows for OEM’s to design products on a global scale to meet European electrical standards.

Design engineers may face the challenge of saving on their PCB space without having to forego terminal protection. L1NK 396 connectors offer superior terminal protection in a small package with maximum current.
