New device connectors with K-, L-, M-coding
Phoenix Contact’s new M12 device connectors in K, L, and M coding round off the extensive M12 Power connector series and enable the transmission of high direct and alternating currents in confined spaces.
The K-coded circular connectors are designed for AC applications with five contacts (4+PE) and transmit up to 630V/16A. The L-coded connectors are available in two designs with five contacts (4+FE) as well as in a four-pos. version. Both designs transmit up to 63V/16A DC and are available in the Profinet-specified version. The M-coded connectors transmit a maximum of 630V/8A AC with six contacts (5+PE).
These power connectors are available in pin and socket versions with 20 cm litz wires or as a one-piece or two-piece flush-type connector for direct PCB assembly using wave or reflow soldering. Like the existing S- and T-codings, the new codings are also described in the 61076-2-111 standard. Users are therefore provided with an extensive range of connectors for compact and future-proof power transmission.
