Binder-USA announces the addition of stainless steel M12 threaded sockets to its 763 series to provide a complete range of stainless steel connectors that are suitable for use in applications requiring a robust sealed and EMI-protected connection such as those in food processing and pharmaceutical manufacturing. Featuring a precision machined stainless steel body, these connectors are available in male and female versions. They are also available with a variety of termination styles including DIP solder contacts, flying leads and solder-cup contacts. A protection rating of IP68 (18-meter depth/24 hours) is achieved through the use of panel sealing O-rings and potting compound which fills the termination area. The connector is available in 4-, 5- and 8-pole versions, and they can be front or rear mounted.
