New IP69K M12 outdoor connectors from binder

New from binder is the M12 A-coded connector designed specifically for outdoor use and it is waterproof and dustproof to IP68, IP69k. The M12 Outdoor withstands high-pressure washing and offers high levels of resistance to UV, temperature fluctuations, acid rain, salt spray, ozone and other pollutants.

M12, the industry standard for sensors, automation and control systems, was originally designed primarily for indoor applications rated to IP68, meaning it is also ideal for wet and dirty conditions and the consequence is that it has often been used in outdoor equipment.With sensors and instrumentation used in ever more extreme conditions, a new range of binder M12 connectors has been specifically designed for outdoor use.

A UV plastic connector body provides high temperature and chemical resistance while high performance polymeric seals provide protection to IP69K.The locking nut is made from high-grade stainless steel and a similarly tough protection cap with lanyard ensures connectors are sealed even when unmated.Screw clamp termination makes them ideal for field assembly.

These new M12 connectors were soon to find new applications including one major contract in the offshore oil exploration industry where the connectors are used on a safety critical sensor designed to prevent injury from falling equipment.
