Viable in applications where previously only M23 and larger connectors could be used, the company’s field-wired M12 connectors in 12 and 17 positions rely on Piercecon connection technology for easy field installation. Users can make signal connections in three steps: strip the cable jacket, insert the wires, and screw the housing tight. No soldering or wire preparation is necessary. The connectors target applications such as image processing systems, decoders, encoders, pressure sensors, measurement devices, and master cables for sensor boxes. Additionally, the M12 connectors feature color-coded terminals and are available in both male and female versions. They meet IP65/67 requirements and fit wire range #28-26 AWG.
