Connecting cable for harsh environments

June 24, 2010
Weidmuller announces an extension to their M12 connector family to include new connecting cables with plastic coupling nuts.

M12 connectors are commonly used in many industries and are standard in industrial applications. Weidmuller's new connecting cables are designed for use in harsh and corrosive environments, and are a cost-effective alternative to stainless steel versions.

The high quality PBT material is corrosion resistant and offers excellent protection against aggressive chemicals and harsh cleaning agents, as well as oils, fats, petroleum and brake fluids. This ensures safe and reliable connections in wash-down, high humidity and harsh environments in industries such as packaging, water wastewater and other process applications.

"The new M12 connecting cable with plastic coupling nuts is the economical alternative to costly stainless steel versions," says Susanne M. Walker, Product Manager. As with all Weidmuller M12 products, these new cables are IP67 water- and dust-tight, and resistant to shock and vibration. They feature self-securing ratchet coupling nuts for safe and reliable installation. This provides a significant savings in wiring time and machine commissioning time.

Weidmuller offers M12 single-ended and double-ended cables in 3, 4 and 5 pole configurations. These high flex PUR/PVC cables are rated for over 20 million bending cycles in continuous flex applications. Versions featuring PVC cables, which are especially suitable for food and beverage processing applications, are also available.
