M8/M12 connector system for communication in industrial environments

10 June 2014

A new easy-to-install industry standard connector system for machine industrial automation and control applications provides a solution that is said to safely and reliably ensure communication in harsh industrial environments

TE Connectivity has launched a new connector system for machine industrial automation and control applications. The M8/M12 connector system offers design engineers a reliable and complete solution for various applications to decrease downtime in industrial environments, providing users with an interface that supports higher bandwidth needs – meeting the requirements of up to 10 Gb/sec.

The new system includes a range of board and field installable connectors, cable assemblies and IO boxes. Key applications include industrial automation; automotive manufacturing; machine tools; semiconductor manufacturing; factory automation; vision Ssystems and manufacturing of solenoid and sensor valves. They are also robust enough for use in harsh commercial applications.

Designed to IEC-61076-2-101, the new connector system is also suited for applications outside the traditional industrial environment, offering benefits wherever a compact reliable connection system with IP67 and IP68 environment protection is required. 

Introducing the new range, Eric Leijtens, gobal product management leader, Field Connectivity, said: “We understand that different applications and industries have various requirements. However, the one thing they have in common is that the communication simply needs to work. The new M8/M12 system fully complements our Industrial Communications portfolio – and enables us to offer customers a solution that is time-saving and error-free, both now and in the future.”
