M12 power L-code connector meets industry 4.0
Available in all versions from Harting, the M12 power L-code connector meets the power requirements of Industry 4.0 solutions, says the company. The M12 power connector is designed to replace 7/8-inch circular connectors by offering a powerful 0.75 kW rating from a compact package that is suitable for operation in confined spaces and demanding operating conditions.
It meets the requirements of the IEC 61076-2-111 standard, with standardised housing connections. This, says the company, represent a major step towards miniaturisation in the power connector sector.
Combined with the 360° shield, the metal housing also provides good EMC protection, claims the company. The four power contacts and fast Ethernet cable can carry power to field distributor boxes, network devices and even small servo motors. As a result, all connected devices and associated controls can be provided with sufficient power via the M12 connection.
