M12 and 7/8-in power connectors accept larger wires

New offering from Binder-USA allows connectors to use larger wire gauge (up to 14 AWG) and conduct currents up to 8 A and 12 A per contact.

06/07/2011


Binder-USA is now offering M12 and 7/8-in. field-attachable connectors with larger screw clamp terminations. This change will allow the connectors to accept wires up to 14 AWG. The ability to use a larger wire gauge make the connectors suitable for connecting power applications typically found in industrial environments.

The Series 713 M12 connectors with 4- and 5-pins can now be terminated with 16 AWG wires and a maximum cable diameter of 10 mm. After increasing the wire gauge it is possible for the connectors to conduct currents up to 8 A per contact. Both male and female versions are available in straight form and are intermateable with all 4- and 5-pin A-coded versions.

The Series 820 7/8-in. connectors with 5-pins can now be terminated with 14 AWG wires and a maximum cable diameter of 14 mm. By increasing the size of the cable clamps it is now possible for the connectors to withstand currents up to 12 A per contact. Male and female connectors with straight and angled forms are available with the larger screw terminations.

All Binder M12 and 7/8-inch connectors are IP67 rated when connected to their mating parts. Binder-USA offers mating cordsets, receptacles and field-attachable connectors for a complete connecting system.
