New M8 connectors target space-constrained applications
Connectors, Switches & EMECH
A new version of the popular Binder range of M8 connectors reduces the length by some 30% making them ideal for applications where space is at a premium such as in inductive proximity sensors. Until now all Binder M8 connectors incorporated a hole for an LED indicator but these new versions cater for a growing requirement for M8 sensor tube connectors without LEDs.
The nickel-plated, brass body is only 10.3mm long and termination is via gold-plated dip-solder contacts and features sealing bands designed for press-fit into 5.77mm diameter tubes.
Available in three and four pole format and with screw termination for wires up to 0.25mm2 (AWG 24), the M8 series is IP67 when mated with a current rating of 4A and voltage of 60V for 3-pole and 30V for 4-pole (800V impulse).
