Circular connectors for tough environments

28 April 2018

binder specialises in the design and manufacture of circular connectors for a wide variety of applications across many industry sectors. These include M5, M8 and M12 connectors designed for the growing sensors and controls market where the move towards the smart factory means an increase in demand for robust and reliable signal, communication and power connections. 

For use in “interesting” environments including outdoors, binder has recently announced several new connectors. Here, binder offers a range of M12 connectors with a UV plastic body and high-grade stainless-steel combination providing high temperature and chemical resistance while polymeric seals ensure protection to IP69K. A tough protection cap with a lanyard ensures sealing even when unmated while screw clamp terminations make them ideal for field assembly.

To meet the stringent hygiene requirements for machinery, systems and components within the food and beverage markets, binder has recently announced connectors designed specifically for this market. These are M12 A-coded connectors available with 3,4,5,8 or 12 contacts and highly suited to applications in all types of food processing including milk and cheese dairies, abattoirs, bottling plants and food storage. binder has used high-quality materials such as stainless steel and special plastics with very smooth contours to prevent dirt adhesion. In addition, a high protection class (IP68 and IP69K) is provided to meet the requirements of high pressure cleaning and the sometimes aggressive chemicals widely used in the industry.
