Molex Inc. says it is first-to-market with its one-piece S8 Automotive Bulb Socket.
This wedge-style bulb socket simplifies assembly and reduces inventory and component costs. The Molex S8 bulb socket also includes an individual wire seal design that provides easy attachment during the crimping process.
The bulb sockets, which are intended for multiple transportation applications, including turn signals, brake lights, positioning lights and backup lights, allow automotive OEMs to inventory just one socket, versus stocking a lamp socket module and terminal housing. The product also streamlines the inventory process by providing one key type and color per assembly, versus different color pin modules, housings and key type assembly options. Additionally, the Molex S8 bulb socket design features a three-circuit housing to accommodate single or double filament bulbs for greater design flexibility and further reduced inventory needs. The bulb sockets meet industry-standard requirements and are SAE/USCAR-15 compliant.
