Binder has made key additions to its M16 connector series. They are versions that satisfy the very high data speeds needed by the latest sensor-based automation systems and an ASIG-compliant model employed in wireless networks, including 5G.
These models can accommodate up to 24 contacts – with or without EMI shielding. With largely metal housings and a robust screw locking system, connectors offer environmental protection up to IP68.
The combination of a high pin count with the compact size of nominally 18.5mm diameter and 60mm in length indicates M16 connectors give an excellent alternative to more expensive connector systems. They accommodate cables ranging from 4mm to 10mam diameter, are rated to 250V and can resist an impulse voltage up to 1500V, with current handling of up to 7A (at 40C).
To sum up the company's M16 product offering, product manager, Sascha Döbel, comments: “At binder, we have found that the flexibility provided by our comprehensive range of M16 connectors with the seemingly endless options at relatively low cost compared to other connector systems, has led to its popularity continually increasing and its range of applications becoming ever wider.”
