RS Components now offers a complete series of circular connectors manufactured by CONEC Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH, part of the Amphenol Group.
Providing 0.8mm diameter contact pins, the extremely compact range of M8x1 D-coded circular connectors are fully optimised for industrial automation applications. These connectors provide engineers with all the properties required to meet the ISO11801 Class D standard for up to 100Mbit/s signal transmissions.
Ideal for various Ethernet-based communication applications incorporating industrial interfaces and control and regulation units, as well as camera, sensor and robotics-based applications, the devices need only a small installation space. Key characteristics of the connectors include variable mounting and connection options on the device side, power and data signal on one data pair, and continuous shielding.
Electrical characteristics incorporate working voltages of 50VAC and 60VDC and a current rating of up to 4A at 40C. Also, all the devices are protected against water ingress, rated to IP67.
The field attachable connectors comprise axial female and male connector variants and are supplied with optional screw connections (female) or crimp connections (both female and male).
