Panel feed connector saves space
Making it easier to connect Fast Ethernet and 10Gbit/s Ethernet cables where space is limited, an M12 panel feed through with PushPull locking mechanism has been released by Harting. The M12 PFT (female panel feed through) Slim Design is available with D and X coding and is compatible with the company’s M12 PushPull connectors and the standard M12 devices with a screw fitting. Users have the option to use existing connections or to upgrade to M12 connectors with PushPull locking without having to change the device connection.
The panel feed through is exclusively available with a crimp connection that is easy to assemble in the field, says the company. It is protected to the IP65/67 standard and is suitable for harsh ambient temperatures from -40 to +85 degree C. It incorporates a new 360 degree shield which provides protection against EMI.
The X-coded version delivers transmission rates up to 10Gbit/s, suitable for demanding industrial applications.
