M12 connectors for AC and DC applications

The new S-coded and T-coded power connectors from binder have been developed specifically for power transmission.

The two standardised types are designed as per DIN EN 610276-2-111 for applications such as motors and drives and for supplying power to AC and DC consumers.

The S-coded connectors of binder’s 814 Series are suitable for use in AC supplies up to 630 VAC. They have a PE lead and can transmit, in the two-phase or three-phase version, power of up to 7.5 kW. The power connectors of the 814 Series are intended for applications such as AC motors and drives, motor load switches and frequency converters.

The T-coded connectors of the 813 Series are intended for DC voltages up to 63 VDC at 12 A and are suited for use as power connectors for fieldbus or Ethernet applications such as Profinet. These power connectors can also be used to supply DC motors and drives or other power-hungry components with up to 750W.

The Series 813 connectors have four gold-plated contacts while the Series 814 plugs have two and three gold-plated contacts and one pre-mating PE contact. They are available in both straight and right-angle versions.

The cable connectors of both types come with the M12 interlock as standard. They protect to IP67 and IP68 and are designed for more than 100 mating cycles. The operational temperature range is -25 °C to +85 °C.

Both series offer moulded male cable connectors and female cable jacks, either premade or ready for assembly. For panel mounting, round and square housings made of metal and plastic are available. These can be screw-mounted from the front or back. The products can be connected by the customer and are also available with already connected stranded wire. In this way, binder allows its customers to find the connector suitable for their preferred method of installation.
