M8 Sensor and automation connectors are field-wireable
Binder has increased the scope of sensor and automation applications for its M8 connectors with the introduction of a 12-contact version for factory automation, process control, industrial networking, robotics and machine tools.
The Series 768-718 UL-approved screw coupling M8 connectors are quick and simple to install, reduce downtime and labour costs, says Binder. The M8 connectors protect contacts from liquids, dirt and dust while the screw locking mechanism is resistant to vibration, ensuring a robust connection.
The moulded male and female cable connectors and panel mount connectors can be supplied terminated with PUR cable or single wires. As a result, Binder can configure these M8 connectors to meet a specific requirement for a variety of complex customer applications.
The new male and female, straight M8 screw connectors have brass, gold plated contacts and come with standard cable lengths of two or five metre or single wires in standard lengths of 200mm. Different lengths can be supplied on request.
The Series 768-718 M8 connectors are protected to IP67 when mated, have a current rating of 1A, and a rated voltage of 30V. They are available as shielded or non-shielded versions.
