Shielded Connectors Serve Rugged Applications
Coming preassembled for Profibus and Ethernet users, Binder-USA’s M12 shielded panel-mounted male or female connectors offer a receptacle that is attached to a shielded cable with a twisted pair of AWG 22 wires. The Profibus receptacles come in a front- or rear-mount design for mounting to control cabinets, and the die-cast zinc housing has a galvanic connection to the braided shield of the cable to protect from EMI. The IP 67-rated interconnects are currently offered in the B-coded version with a standard cable length of 0.5 meters, and each socket connector is compatible with matching Binder-USA B-coded field-attachable connectors and cordsets. The connectors have two gold-plated contacts crimped to a twisted pair of wires, and exhibit a rated current is 4 A at a maximum operating voltage of 250 V.
