Screw clamp contacts for simple assembly
12 January 2014
Binder has introduced a new range of M12 panel mount connectors that feature screw clamp contacts and a two-part body. They are designed for when connectors are mounted after connection has been made to the device and the cable bundle or single wires protrude from the front panel.
The rear of the body of these new connectors mounts either to a panel cut-out using a M20 thread or via a lock nut. The wires are terminated via screw contacts in the insert mounted in the front of the body that can be located in one of four positions to control the direction of cable outlet and the connector can then be assembled.
These A-coded M12 interface connectors provide easy mounting in field applications, are available in 4, 5 and 8-pole male and female format and provide protection to IP67 when mated.
Binder has also introduced a new range of twin distributors that can be pre-ordered with internal wiring configurations so that two sensors or actuators can be connected to a bus line for either CANbus or DeviceNet.
Versions are available in four formats: male M8 to two female M8, male M12 to two female M8, male M12 to two female M12 and female M12 to both male and female M12. Pre-moulded versions for field termination with two female M8, two female M12 or both male and female M12 are also available.
All types include an integrated LED and are protected to IP67 when mated. They are supplied in four and five pole format, are rated to 6A, have gold plated contacts and have a mating cycle of over 100. The moulded versions are fitted with a one-metre cable.
