Food zone connectors meet EHEDG requirements

19 June 2017

Processes and products employed in food production areas need to be contamination free. In areas where a component comes into direct contact with the food being processed the cables and connectors need to satisfy the strictest cleanliness and hygiene requirements. The materials should neither absorb nor contaminate the food product. 

The new M12 range of connectors from Murrelektronik, are made of polypropylene which fulfils the latest EHEDG requirements for products situated in food zones.  
The M12 range is produced from FDA-compliant materials -  highly-resistant and robust polypropylene and has been designed to meet EHEDG requirements. The connectors are suitable for use in temperatures of between -40°C and +105°C. They are also resistant to high-pressure cleaning, with an IP69K protection rating.
