Benefit of using the hermaphroditic housings
The Mini-Universal MATE-N-LOK connector system offers a special hermaphroditic housing design where 2 of the same housings in the same position size mate to one another. The benefit of this design is a reduction in the amount of part numbers and inventory for the user.

Benefit of using the Mini-Universal MATE-N-LOK Sealed Connector System
The Mini-Universal MATE-N-LOK Sealed Connector System offers a splash-proof design for use in areas where high humidity, intermittent liquid splashing or foam-in applications require a sealed connector for improved electrical performance. The sealed system is available in select 2-16 positions and requires either individual or ganged wire seals and an interface seal in conjunction with the plug and cap housings uniquely designed to accommodate these seals. The sealed plug housings with wire and interface seal can also be mated to the standard Mini-Universal MATE-N-LOK headers without drain holes for a sealed wire to board application.
