System integration/control components

Lock-in-place connection of the ecolink M12 cordsets from ifm efector withstands shock, vibration, and over-torquing.

Exton, PA —The ecolink M12 cordset product line from ifm efector features a "lock-in-place" coupling nut that secures the cordset to a quick disconnect sensor and prevents the cordset from detaching even in high-shock and vibration environments. The ecolink insert design acts as a mechanical end-stop that prevents possible damage to the Viton o-ring from over-tightening. A 316 stainless steel sleeve with saw tooth contour protects the nickel-plated coupling nut and maintains optimum sealing.

The cordsets can be attached quickly, manually or by using a torque wrench. For status indication, the line offers right-angle models with an LED status display designed with a black transparent housing for high visibility from a distance and in brightly lighted areas. The product is tested to withstand harsh conditions and aggressive oils and coolants, meets cRUus approval and RoHS standards, and it is silicon and halogen free. The high-flex PUR jacketed cable is rated for over 5 million flex cycles. Operating temperature range is -13 to 194 °F (-25 to 90 °C).

Straight, right angle, and LED models of ecolink cordsets are available. List prices are $9.50 (2 m), $11 (5 m), and $14 (10 m). LED models are $11 (2 m), $12.50 (5 m), and $15.50 (10 m). Volume discounts as low as $6.65 per cordset are available in quantities of 250 or more.
