Binder-USA LP has extended its M8 field-attachable connectors with an option of solder termination for both metal and plastic versions. The connectors now include a full plastic contact body design. These Series 768 M8 connectors are well suited for automation sensor applications.
All M8 connectors are available with 3 and 4 gold-plated contacts. When properly mated, the mated pair is IP67-rated, protecting the connection ingress of liquids and debris. The cross wire section has been enlarged from 0.25mm² (AWG 24) to 0.34mm² (AWG 22) to accommodate cables with larger wire sizes. Shielding options are offered providing protection from electromagnetic interference. The M8 connectors are fully mating-compatible with other Binder-USA M8 connectors, including cordsets and front- and rear-mounted panel receptacles.
Binder-USA is a subsidiary of Franz Binder GmbH & Co., a German-based designer and manufacturer of circular connectors and cordsets for use in industrial environments including factory automation, process control, and medical technology applications.
