Mini-Fit TPA Plugs and Receptacles

Molex's Mini-Fit TPA plugs and receptacles utilize a highly visible "TPA pin" that indicates when a terminal is fully seated in the housing and ensures that the terminal will not back out of the housing during mating or when in use. Mini-Fit TPA connectors feature a connector position assurance (CPA) key, ensuring that the male and female connectors cannot be accidentally disengaged. The Mini-Fit TPA product family accepts all standard Mini-Fit crimp terminals, further reducing design and qualification efforts. Mini-Fit TPA products are available in wire-to-wire and wire-to-board configurations, with various circuit sizes ranging from 2- to 16-position accommodating 16 to 28 AWG.

  • TPA lock inserts into plug and receptacle housings to ensure that terminals are fully seated and guarantees that the terminals will not back out
  • Optional CPA (Connector Position Assurance) key prevents accidental unmating
  • No new tooling required
  • Up to 13.0 A per pin for increased current carrying capabilities
  • Offered in wire-to-wire and wire-to-board configurations; headers available in mounting pegs or screw-mount flanges
