VersaBlade Connector System

In harness configurations, where each separate connection increases the risk of mismating or signal failure, the VersaBlade connector system from Molex offers superior mating reliability, easy assembly, and increased cost savings compared to commonly used round-pin designs.

The VersaBlade system is based on three components: 1.78 mm (.070") wide flat blade tab terminals; multi-configured modular housings; and terminal position assurance inserts. The system provides modularity and design flexibility for a variety of appliance/HVAC applications such as refrigerators, washing machines, heating units, and ventilators.

VersaBlade accepts AWG 14-22 wire and can carry 4 to 15 amps and 300 volts, depending upon design characteristics. This provides users with both signal and power carrying capabilities.
