M12 connectors for AC and DC applications from binder

,

binder’s new S-coded and T-coded power connectors are very well suited for power transmission. The two standardized types are designed as per DIN EN 610276-2-111 for applications such as motors and drives and for supplying power to AC and DC consumers.

The S-coded connectors of binder’s 814 Series were developed for use in AC supplies  up to 630 VAC. They have a PE lead and can transmit, in the two-phase or three-phase version, power of up to 7.5 kW. The power connectors of the 814 Series are ideal for applications such as AC motors and drives, motor load switches and frequency converters.

M12 connectors for AC and DC applications

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The T-coded connectors of binder’s 813 Series are intended for DC voltages up to 63 VDC at 12 A. They are suited for use as power connectors for fieldbus or Ethernet applications such as Profinet. These power connectors can also be used to supply DC motors and drives or other power-hungry components with up to 750W.

The Series 813 connectors have four gold-plated contacts while the Series 814 plugs have two and three gold-plated contacts and one pre-mating PE contact. They are available in both straight and right-angle versions.

 

The cable connectors of both types come with the M12 interlock as standard. They protect to IP67 and IP68 and are designed for more than 100 mating cycles. The operational temperature range is -25 °C to +85 °C.

 

Both series offer moulded male cable connectors and female cable jacks, either premade or ready for assembly. For panel mounting, round and square housings made of metal and plastic are available. These can be screw-mounted from the front or back. The products can be connected by the customer and are also available with already connected stranded wire. In this way, binder allows its customers to find the connector suitable for their preferred method of installation.

 

More applications possible for binder’s versatile RD24 power connector series

,

binder, a technology and industry leading manufacturer of circular connectors for a wide range of applications, has added new versions to its popular RD24 power connector series. Among the new Series 692/693 connectors is a version that can accommodate cables with diameters from 7 mm to 17mm and a panel mount version that binder has designed for use with thicker front panels.

Applications for these UL approved RD24 connectors include power connections for pressure and temperature transducers, welding equipment, CCTV, security installations and control systems.

The new cable connector has what binder describes as a “Vario” cable outlet that can handle different cables sizes. The design features an onion ring seal which has multiple, separable seals which, when separated, fits various cable diameters.”

Two specifications are available – 4 pole (16A, 400V) and 7 pole (10A, 250V) – both of which have a pre-engaging earth contact. binder is offering male and female versions for in-line mating or connection to standard panel-mount receptacles.

binder’s RD24 connectors protect to IP67 when mated and locked and options are available for screw, crimp and solder termination and contact resistance is ≤5mΩ.

The new panel mount power connector is available with 3+PE or 6+PE gold plated contacts with a maximum current rating of 16A or 10A and voltages of 400V or 250V.

The compact RD24 panel mount connector features screw termination and is rated to IP67 when mated.

HARTING RJ Industrial® MultiFeature series now even easier to assemble

,

HARTING are delighted to present the RJ Industrial® MultiFeature series, an RJ industrial interface which is now significantly easier to assemble in the field as it no longer requires a separate tool.

With the RJ Industrial in the new MultiFeature series, HARTING meets customers’ wishes and requirements for simpler operation and field assembly capability. The continued development of the successful RJ Industrial® standard now offers tool-free assembly, easier use and a robust metal housing. An additional area of application for AWG 26 to AWG 22 stranded wires, along with robust cable fixation, are features that simplify fitting and improve installation.

As the classic RJ45 was developed for telecommunications, it did not always meet the demands of the industrial sector. The HARTING RJ Industrial® MultiFeature series is designed specifically to resist all the difficulties posed by harsh environments. Safe Cat. 6A performance and IP20 and IP65/67 housing paired with PoE power supply variants IEEE802.3af (PoE 15.4W) / IEEE802.3at (PoE 25.5W) / IEEE802.3bt (PoE 100W) provides data and power for every device.

The robust metal housing provides a reliable Ethernet connection and is suitable for industrial markets thanks to its metal locking and tough strain relief. This consistent development progress has simplified the interface that has proven its worth a million times over.
