Power Window

Power windows are electric windows that are raised or lowered by pressing a button or switch in lieu of a crank shaft handle. Interplex customizes both electrical and mechanical solutions that are required to enable this; for example, motor connectors, guide rails, terminals and connector headers.

Connector Headers

Connector headers are electrical connectors with one or more rows of male pins spaced apart within an insert molded body. Interplex’s connector headers provide good mating retention for reliable connections in a large variety of end applications and sub-systems, and we can support you every step of the way with numerous pin count and pitch options, current carrying capacities, pin orientations (vertical/right angles) and wire sizes.

Our full suite of capabilities enable us to reliably precision stamp metal and mold plastic (pre-molding, overmolding and insert molding) that is required for connector headers. These processes are complemented with a comprehensive range of value-added processes such as plating and potting.

Motor Connectors

Interplex’s motor connectors cater to various end applications across multiple automotive sub-systems. We are well equipped to precision stamp metal and mold plastic (pre-molding, overmolding and insert molding) to adhere to your motor connector requirements. These manufacturing processes are complemented by value-added processes such as plating, heat staking and soldering.

Our full suite of capabilities enable us to customize a myriad of motor connectors for different end applications— from voltage regulator brush holders to power window brush holders, to clutch actuators and windshield wiper motor applications.

Press-Fit

Interplex’s Press-Fit technology establishes solderless electro-mechanical connections with plated-through holes on printed circuit boards. These repeatable and reliable connection joints perform well even in harsh environments, and can manifest in a myriad of forms such as connector headers and customized overmolded electronic enclosures.

Extending across a multitude of industries, possible end applications include power distribution, actuator controls, automotive body control modules, solar panels, watches, passenger comfort and infotainment switches, airbag ECU safety solutions, and much more.

Interplex offers a wide spectrum of options: Choose from different materials, plating options, and even designs. From the low force eye-of-the-needle available in various sizes, to the hybrid MiniPLX perfect for high density signal and power applications, and even customizable options for dual-ended/SMT/IDC integrated Press-Fits.

Terminals

Interplex’s terminals are trusted by top-tier automotive companies for a myriad of end applications within cars. Available options include terminal pins, clips and contacts, and these can be delivered to you in various forms— singulated or in strips.

Our terminals are used in many end applications such as: Within plug-in relays, as interconnects between PCB and relays, within various ECUs, as motor/harness connectors to infotainment systems and power windows, and between user interface switches to their respective sub-systems (such as headlights, air-conditioners).

Our full suite of capabilities enables us to precision stamp and plate intricate terminals in various shapes and sizes to fulfil your end application needs. Our in-house skiving equipment can also contour metal thicknesses and configurations as required.
