Würth Elektronik now provides a broad product portfolio of A-coded M12 circular connectors (DIN EN 61076-2-101). The high-quality male and female connectors with screw mating for panel mounting and cable attachment are ideal for use in rugged environments with dust, moisture and vibration. The WR-CIRCM12 is available in four-, five- or eight-pole versions.
M12-A stands for data cables with a DC power supply option – particularly suitable for fieldbus applications in industry, manufacturing engineering and automation. Sensors and actuators can be connected via robust dustproof and waterproof connections with IP67 or IP68 ingress protection.
Packaging variants are offered with metal or plastic bushings. The O-rings and seals are constructed of elastomers and epoxy resin, and the contacts are gold-plated. All solderable products from the family provide UL94-V0 certified packages, and the pre-attached cables and field-attachable products with screw terminals comply with UL94-HB.
The M12-A product group comprises cables with male or female connectors, field-attachable connectors, and plugs and receptacles for device installation, incorporating prewired connectors or those to be placed on the board as THT components, for example. Free samples can now be ordered.
