MIDDLETOWN, PA – New high-density M12 connectors from Phoenix Contact provide more I/O points than traditional M12 sensor/actuator connectors. The circular connectors come in 12- and 17-pole versions.
This high pin count allows M12 device connections in applications where space must be conserved, such as medical equipment, robotics, printing machines and industrial cameras. The typical panel cut-out size is only 11 mm, and even in this small footprint, the rugged M12 connector meets IP67 requirements.
The high-density M12 connectors are available as molded cordsets and extension cables, as well as panel feed-through or PCB mounted receptacles. They feature Phoenix Contact’s SPEEDCON technology, securing with only half a turn. They operate across a wide temperature range and are available in plug or socket versions.
