Push-In M12 connector
Luetze has expanded its configurable M12 connectors. They include Push-In Technology for fast and fault-free wiring of configurable cables.
The connectors with Push-In connection technology meet the needs of control cabinet, machine, and equipment designers for wiring technology. Rigid conductors and conductors with ferrules can be wired without tools by direct insertion without having to first open the contact point. To connect the fire-wire strands without ferrules, the terminal point is opened by a colored lever without tools, and then closed again.
Depending on the application, the connectors are suitable for transferring signals, data and output, for shielded and unshielded applications. Thanks to the Push-In-Technology, the insertion forces are low which greatly simplifies the connection, said the company. In contrast, the pull-out forces are higher so that all connections guarantee a high level of wiring security. The company supplies the M12 connectors for the same price as the screw terminal technology.
The Push-In-Technology makes full use of its benefits when prefabricated cables and cable harnesses are used. It can be operated intuitively and in only a few steps, whilst ensuring contact security at the same time. Luetze uses a clear color coding system for the wires during assembly. All colors in the connection block are assigned, for the actuator sensor area and for the field bus wiring such as CAN, according to the corresponding standards EN 60947-5-2. This means that firstly, it is almost impossible to confuse the Pins, and secondly there is no need for any more time-consuming and error-prone recoding of the individual color codes. A permanent spring pushes each wire back.
The connectors are available in various versions, either with a straight or angled connector, with the option of shielded or unshielded. The angled version allows the cable outlet to be positioned in 45° steps compared to the pole pattern. The products have the same design as the screw terminal technology and are designed for more than 100 plug cycles.
