Molex Incorporated is supporting challenging industrial automation, aerospace and defence 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 moulded junction boxes for sensor and actuator applications.

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

Complementing Molex’s 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 minimise 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 includes 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.

Adjunta adds: “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.”

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
