Tue, 11/01/2011 - 12:20pm
Binder-USA announced new receptacles with adjustable angular positions as part of the Series 713, 763, 715 and 766 automation product ranges. The panel-mounted receptacles can be rotated during installation to allow a right-angle cordset to connect in a desired angular position. These M12 A- and B-coded connectors are commonly used for industrial networks and automation applications in harsh environmentsThe new receptacles are available in both male and female versions and prewired with 200-mm wires. The A-coded connectors are available with four, five, eight and 12 gold-plated contacts. The B-coded connectors are available with four and five gold-plated contacts. When fully connected to their mating parts the connectors are IP67/IP68 rated ensuring connections are protected from liquids and debris. Additionally, the housing of the A-coded receptacles has been converted from nickel-plated brass to nickel-plated die-cast zinc. In result, terminations are no longer potted since the contact insert is now keyed and locked in the housing.
