New design of M12 connectors offers many advantages
22/12/2016 11:55:41 Hypertac NewsNews

Hypertac M12 connectorsThe new range of Hypertac M12 connectors that incorporates innovative features in a compact design while taking full advantage of traditional Hypertac hyperboloid contact technology is now available on quick delivery and low MOQs from Aerco. 

Developed to meet the growing demand for miniaturisation, these new M12 connectors are available with 3, 4, 5 or 8 way contacts with options of over-moulded or free assembly and with straight or 90° versions to meet all the recognised standards and industry requirements.

An anti-vibration arrangement comprising a floating female hyperboloid crimp socket within a robust connector insulator and shell provides maximum security.  Additional benefits are easy handling characteristics and rapid contact assembly with a unique, sideways clip insulator.

Insulator assembly is simplified with an easy to use touch, look and feel system that ensures correct orientation and the design provides the highest possible connector-to-connector density.  The free-assembled right-angle version has an adaptable cable entry termination that allows for a change to a straight version in the field without compromising the IP67 reliability.
