M8 connectors for Ethernet and PROFINET

Middletown, Pa. – Phoenix Contact has expanded its range of circular connectors for data transmission. The new, two-piece M8 device connectors are especially well-suited for compact devices such as SCADA operator interfaces or camera systems.

The four-position socket contacts feature D-coding and data transmission at up to 100 Mbps (CAT5 in accordance with IEEE 802.3) in Ethernet and PROFINET environments. For mounting in the device wall, thread or press-in housings are available for a mechanically stable port-screw connection. When connected, the device connectors fulfill the IP67 degree of protection.
