Phoenix Contact, Middletown, Pa., has expanded its M12 connector range for power transmission in industrial environments with S-coded flush-type connectors and cordsets rated to 16 A and 630 V. (Ratings are per IEC; UL 2237 is pending.) Standard S-coded connectors, rated to 12 A, are also available.
They have two positions and protective earth ground (2+PE). The panel-mount connectors are pre-assembled with 0.5-m long wires with conductor cross section of 1.5 mm² (16 AWG). This M12 circular connector system is suitable for use as a main power connector, with IP67 protection and the robust metal M16 X 1.5 panel-mount thread.
The compact panel-mount connectors are available in pin and socket versions for front and rear mounting. The unshielded cable cordsets are available in lengths of 1, 2, 5 and 10 m, with both straight and right angle heads. Both male and female pigtail versions are offered as standard articles. Double-ended cordsets can be manufactured on request through the Phoenix Contact solution center.
