TE Connectivity (TE) is extending its M12 connector portfolio. The latest connectors, with eight and twelve positions for direct mounting onto PCBs and panels, complement field-installable connectors and cable assembly solutions.
The new connectors, which are UL certified and have an IP67 rating (indicating that they are dust-tight and water-proof down to a depth of at least one meter), ensure efficient, high-quality and reliable signal and transmission. The high pin density on the 12-pin connector in particular provides customers with a very compact design.
“Our new plug-in PCB connectors are easy to install and help to increase production efficiency and decrease installation cost in digital factories,” says Andy Yang, a product manager for TE Connectivity. Yang suggests applications for installers in industrial automation, machinery, industrial ethernet, sensors, and other areas where IP67 protection is needed. He continued, “Adding this product to our portfolio allows us to better serve our customers and accommodate their needs for higher signal and data transmission."
