Connectors transmit high levels of power in harsh environments

December 08, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Belden’s latest introduction from the Lumberg Automation family of M12 connectors is a Power Connector; it is compact, efficient and offers the ability to transmit at high power levels for long periods of time.

The connector applies technology that works very well in high temperatures, making it ideal for harsh environments. Its compact design and high power transmission make it a cost-effective solution for operations that need a reliable, flexible connector.

The M12 Power Connector is S-, L-, K- and T-coded. The high voltage and currents ratings combined with the high derating in harsh environmental conditions mark out this product portfolio. Its small size makes the M12 Power connector suited for applications that require little space, such as automotive, manufacturing, machine building and power transmission. The M12 Power Connector also fulfils global standards, such as UL and VDE and is designed according to D-IN EN 61076-2-111.

“This product is an excellent choice for those who need high power transmission while saving space,” said Felix Duello, product manager for Belden. “The M12 Power Connector’s compact design means it can be successfully used in the smallest cabinets, while the connector materials allow for a higher derating. If you need to downsize a machine but still transmit at high power, the M12 Power Connector is ideal.”
