Distrelec has expanded its portfolio with the addition of more than 100 industrial products from Molex, a global electronics leader and connectivity innovator. By making these products available to its extensive customer base, Distrelec is significantly strengthening its standing in the industrial automation sector. 

Specifically, Distrelec will be offering six different Molex product options directly from its inventory, resulting in expedited lead times and next-day delivery in selected countries. The product options include mPm DIN valve connectors, MPIS passive junction boxes, GWconnect heavy duty connectors, as well as Brad mini-change, micro-change (M12) and nano-change (M8) connectors. 

Noteworthy additions to the Distrelec portfolio include IP67-rated M12 circular straight-to-straight male-to-male connectors for use in industrial automation applications that require secure signals and current transmission. These connectors boast a double-ended industrial cordset, four poles and green 5m long Weld-Slag Oil-Resistant (WSOR) cable with 22 wire size (AWG). Similarly, Molex’s Brad M8 and M12 single-ended IP67-rated cordsets with knurled hex nuts feature five poles and female (straight) to pigtail orientation, with black 5m long 22 AWG unshielded WSOR cable.
