Compact M12 panel mount connector features assembled wires

An advanced sealing concept, safety features and sustainable materials characterise latest enhancements to the binder panel mount connectors in M12 size. Users in process, sensor and drive technology also benefit from optional shielding and customisation.

Compact M12 panel mount connector features assembled wires

binder is expanding its M12 portfolio to include panel mount connectors with a continuous M12x1 mounting thread, which are now equipped with assembled wires. In addition to the previously offered dip-soldered versions, this variant is now available in a second termination type.

With these products, binder is targeting applications in automation technology, such as process automation, sensor and actuator technology, and robotics. Here, the panel mount part is particularly suitable for installation in confined spaces, as it can be attached directly from the front. Larger fastening threads for the coupling nut typical with M12, such as M16x1.5, are not required with this product.

Sealing, fixation and anti-rotation device

As part of the product redesign, the binder engineers have integrated a new type of sealing concept. The connector body is pressed into the panel mount connector sleeve on the connection side rather than the male connector side as before. Thus, the seal is made on the front side instead of on the rim of the male connector body, which ensures constant tightness of the design under industrial conditions.

The male panel mount sleeve made of lead-free brass is a sustainable solution from an ecological point of view. It has also been provided with a specific inner contour to securely fix the male receptacle. This contour also acts as a receptacle anti-rotation device.

On request, the body of the male panel mount connector can be pressed into the sleeve in 45 degree increments according to customer specifications. Moulding is possible, but not necessary. For use in electromagnetically exposed environments, a shield plate may also be attached to the sleeve on the connection side.

The panel mount connector can optionally be attached with an anti-rotation device by means of a flattening on the M12 thread.
