The Binder range of M8 shielded cable connectors has been extended to accommodate cables up to 6 to 8mm so that they can be used with Ethernet cables. Until now, this popular range of connectors could only accommodate cables up to 5.5mm diameter but a new, wider cable gland extends the application area to include industrial Ethernet and other applications requiring larger diameter cables.
These devices are protected to IP67 when mated and are available in a three and four pole male and female format and have a shielded, nickel-plated brass connector body along with gold-plated brass male and bronze female contacts. Termination is via a secure screw clamp and the rated current is 4A. The connectors have a life in excess of 100 mating cycles.
