Phoenix Contact’s line of sensor/actuator connectors now includes QUICKON M8 connectors. The QUICKON system uses insulation-displacement technology to reduce installation times by up to 80 percent, according to the company. By eliminating the need to prepare the wires and cables, insulation-displacement technology provides a fast, vibration-resistant connection. The two-piece connector features color-coded terminals. This is appropriate in field installations, where technicians need to make quick on-site connections and minimize downtime. The M8 connectors are available in both male and female versions, with either three or four positions. Like the M12 QUICKON connectors, they meet IP65/67 requirements and are rated for operation between -25C and +80 C.
