Foremost introduces Binder M12 circular connectors
A male square flange panel-mount M12 connector and an M12 female connector with RJ45 adapter from Binder, are now available from electromechanical component distributor, Foremost Electronics.
The panel mounted Series 763 male M12 connector is an A-coded square flange male connector and can be postioned and is lockable which makes the installation of cables a simple and flexible operation, says Foremost.
The Series 763 male M12 connector consists of separate housing and contact carrier allowing the flange housing to be mounted first and the carrier can then be subsequently installed even from various angles, a common occurrence during installation.
Available with four, five or eight gold plated contacts, the Series 763 M12 panel mount connector is rated up to 250V and 4.0A and protects to IP68 when mated, ensuring fast and easy termination. The male square flange panel-mount M12 connector is can be positioned and is lockable for easy installation. The connector also handles AWG24/7 wires.
The M12 female cable connector and RJ45 adapter combination from Binder is particularly suitable for lead-through control panel applications across many industry sectors. The Series 825 M12 X-coded connector has eight gold-plated contacts and is available in straight or right-angled versions.
Designed in accordance with IEC 61076-2-109, the M12/RJ45 combination is good for high data speeds – four paired up to 10Gbit/s – which is sufficient for most control applications.
Also available is a shieldable Series 825 M12 X-coded female cable connector featuring IDT connection and a 5.5 to 9.0mm cable outlet.
The Series 825 M12 connectors are rated up to 0.5A at 50V AC/60V DC and protects to IP67 when mated. The RJ45 adapter gives protection to IP20.
Alan Vincent, sales director of Foremost, commented: “M12 connectors are one of the most popular types used in panel building and industrial control. These two new products between them offer simple to mount, secure and waterproof connectivity and the option of lead-through wiring to simplify system assembly.”
