Phoenix Contact (Germany) has extended its portfolio of M12 connectors for outdoor use with cabling for CANopen and Devicenet applications.
THE MOLDED M12 CONNECTORS use materials such as V4A stainless steel (1.4404), polypropylene plastics, and a special sealing concept. This design enables use in temperatures up to +105 °C and ensures good resistance to high-pressure cleaning and sunlight (UV). The connectors are therefore designed for use outdoors under harsh conditions, e.g., on construction or agricultural machinery, where CAN-based communication is commonly used. The range includes fully shielded connectors in straight five-position pin or socket design with an FRNC Devicenet cable. The cable sets are available in lengths of 2,5 m or 10 m; customer-specific lengths are available on request.
