TE Connectivity (TE) is reportedly the first company to offer a 630V power class connector for small servo motors that provides all-in-one connectivity for power, signal and data. The Intercontec M12 Motor Connector is a compact, robust metal connector for installations based on one-cable solutions and covers the digital transmission of 2- and 4- wire encoder protocols like Hiperface DSL, BiSS, EnDat 2.2, ACURO link and SCS open link.
With rotatable angled receptacles for flexible mounting, a fast locking system, and IP66/67 protection against dust and water, TE’s M12 Motor Connector enables fast, cost-efficient and reliable termination. The connector’s robust, nickel-plated metal connector provides reliable 360° EMC shield connection as well as a protective ground connection. For motor side connections, this makes it possible to dispense with the protective ground contacting in the motor housing while guaranteeing full compliance with all relevant standards. The connection has UL94 V-0 approval, which is the highest flame resistance rating.
TE’s M12 Motor Connector is available in a freely field-mountable version. Users can choose from 6-pin (5 + PE) and 8-pin (3 + PE + 4) pole arrangements. TE is also developing a design with a “4.tec” assembly concept that can be processed automatically. For more information, peruse the Intercontec M12 motor connector datasheet and/or call 800-522-6752.
