M8 cable connectors with 360° shielding
binder has announced a molded M8 circular connector, part of its 718 Series, which has a new type of shielding concept. In addition to the basic properties of M8 connectors like compact size and low weight, the new 718 Series connector features 360° shielding.
The shielding concept, used for the first time in this environment, ensures particularly reliable EMC shielding without interference. This property in the M8 format makes the circular connector useful primarily in applications such as sensor technology, laboratory equipment and drive solutions.
As with many connectors in the binder portfolio, this product can also be implemented as a customized design. binder offers four versions of the new cable connector with 3, 4, 6 or 8 pins. Degree of protection IP 67 is provided in all versions of this model as is a mechanical lifetime of more than 100 mating cycles.
The rated voltage and rated current differ depending on the number of pins. The 3-pin and 4-pin versions offer 60 V and 2 A up to 4 A, depending on the conductor cross-section. The 6-pin and 8-pin designs can handle up to 30 V and 1.5 A. The cable is optionally available in PVC or PUR. In addition, the cable length can be configured to customer requirements.
