Flexible feed-throughs for M12 and M12 power control cabinets

05-08-2021 | Binder | Subs & Systems

Binder offers new control cabinet feed-through connectors for the M12 product series 713, 813, 814, 823 and 824, which are provided with different codings and pin counts. The M12 or M12 Power type components, in accordance with the DIN EN 61076-2-111 standard, allow signal, data, and supply cables to be connected employing circular connectors of the same type from the respective series. They are equipped with an M12 locking thread and an M16 mounting thread.

M12 connectivity provides efficient, reliable, and cost-effective cabling of fieldbuses, sensors, and actuators in the field l of automation technology. Utilising these standardised, robust connectors, complex installation concepts can be implemented in industrial environments, such as in smart factories, starting from the control cabinet and covering the entire shop floor. The compact design supports applications in confined spaces.

To secure the reliable flow of signals, data and electrical power between the control, communication and power modules within the control cabinet and the automation components in the field, M12 and M12 Power feed-throughs are indispensable components. The new company products are available with A, S, K, L as well as T coding and, depending on the coding, with four to eight pins.

The technical data of the feed-through connectors, such as protection degree, rated voltage and current, contact resistance, and others, vary from series to series according to the specifications of the respective circular connectors. In general, this means that the products meet the requirements of protection degree IP67 and achieve a mechanical lifespan of >100 mating cycles (excluding 713 series). They are intended for operating temperatures between -40C and +85C (814 series: -25C to +85C).
