We strongly encourage molders to use the 24-pin, machined, and molded male and female connectors shown above. Unfortunately, a lot of molders are stuck with old industry standards that utilize 25-pin connectors. The pins are very delicate (1/16-inch diameter exposed) and can easily be bent or pushed back when being mated to a female connector on a mold box, cable, or hot runner controller. The same thing can happen with the female inserts because the metal inserts are only press-fit into the connector. These 25-pin connectors are also only rated for 10 amps, yet many shops use them for hot runner heaters that can easily exceed 15 amps.
