Field-wireable M8 signal cable connectors from binder support efficient and reliable installations in sensor and actuator applications. Featuring snap-in quick locking and now offered with 3 to 6 pins, they are ideal for industrial applications that require reliable signal transmission and are subject to installation space constraints.
A leading manufacturer of industrial circular connectors, binder is adding further straight overmoulded M8 snap-in connectors to the successful 718 product series. In addition to 3 and 4 pins, these are now also available in 5- and 6-pin versions. They are available with either PUR or PVC cables up to 2 m or 5 m standard length. Customised lengths can also be realised on request. Since the locking mechanism does not require any rotating elements, these connectors are particularly easy to handle and stand for high efficiency in use.
M8 Snap-in in the context of state-of-the-art automation
Sensors and actuators are among the core elements of today's automation technology. Here, reliable function, resistance against the influences of harsh industrial environments, small size, flexibility and scalability in use, and the greatest possible time savings during installation are the most important requirements for connection technology. When it comes to signal transmission in industrial sensor-actuator applications, circular connectors – with screw-lock or quick-lock technology – have been well established. Secure locking and industry relevant degrees of protection are decisive requirements for the use in plant engineering, but also in conveyor technology or within drones. M8 stands for a particularly space-saving form of connector, and the variety of pin counts ensures a wide degree of flexibility. In particular, signal connectors with snap-in locking ensure simple, fast and thus efficient installation.
