Fully braided shield for M12 cables

Weidmuller’s new fully shielded sensor-actuator interface M12 connecting cables protect against EMI.


New Weidmuller M12 connecting cables have plastic coupling nuts, designed for use in harsh and corrosive industrial networking environments as a cost-effective alternative to stainless steel versions.Weidmuller now offers fully shielded M12 cables with a braided shield connected to the coupling nut. This design provides 360 degrees of protection of the connector and the cable against electromagnetic interference, and gives users fully shielded and secure signal connections. With cULus approval, the new M12 connecting cables are suitable for use on machinery in a broad range of applications in North America.

Weidmuller’s broad range of M12 fully shielded cables includes 3-, 4- and 5-pole versions as single- and double-ended cables. These are all available with straight and right angle connectors for applications with limited clearance space. As with most Weidmuller Sensor Actuator Interface connectors and cables, the fully shielded M12 versions feature a self-securing ratchet coupling nut for secure connections in applications where shock and vibration are present. This feature helps eliminate the risk of loose connections that can cause unreliable and intermittent signal transmission.

Ideal for use in the most demanding continuous flex C-track applications, the cables feature halogen-free PUR jackets, and are rated for over 2 million bending cycles. Their increased performance and lifespan benefits users through reduced maintenance needs and optimized machine up time. In addition, the water- and dust-tight IP67-rated connectors ensure a reliable connection outside of the cabinet, directly on the machine.

Weidmuller also offers shielded M12 and M8 customizable connectors for use with existing cables. This option gives users the flexibility to create quick disconnect and custom cables in the field.
