Rated at 4 A per contact and 250 V.
Binder-USA has added a crimp style cable connector to its M12 product line. It withstands vibration more effectively than screw and solder terminated connectors for acute working conditions and high motion applications.
Crimping guarantees a secure connection with high vibration and shock loads. Contact resistance is low with the gas-tight pin connection, even under extreme loads.
Male and female gold-turned contacts are available separately and accept wires between 22 and 20 AWG. A synthetic slider is included in the female cable connector to help hold the contacts during assembly.
The connectors are available in A- and B-coding and shielded with an iris spring. A-coded units are also available in a non-shielded version.
When fully mated, all connections are rated IP67 to protect against fluid and degree ingress. Rated at 4 A per contact and 250 V, the connectors handle cable diameters ranging from 4 to 6 mm and 5 to 8 mm.
Binder is a subsidiary of Franz Binder GmbH & Co., a German-based designer and manufacturer of circular connectors and cordsets, based in Camarillo, Calif.
