Cable Assemblies Connect Sensors In Harsh Environments

TE Connectivity (TE) now offers M8M12 cable assemblies for applications such as sensors, robotics and production equipment, where extreme temperatures and harsh environments are likely to be encountered. They are also suitable for non-industrial applications and can be installed quickly.

 

The M8M12 cable assemblies have a protection rating of IP67, which means they are dustproof as well as waterproof down to 1m, while also providing protection from other common industrial elements including EMI, chemicals, and mechanical stress. Users can choose from single-ended or double-ended cable assemblies, including M8M12 versions. M12 configurations are available with 2, 3, 4, 5 and 8 poles, while M8 configurations have 3 or 4 poles.
