Camarillo, CA - The new Surface Mount Technology, SMT, has now been adapted to Binder’s M12 product line of connectors. The recently developed SMT receptacle allows the contacts to be soldered directly to the surface of the printed circuit board. This technology simplifies the assembly process and is commonly used in automated production lines.

The SMT panel mount connectors have been added across all of Binder’s M12 A-, B- and D-coded connectors with various pin options available including 4, 5 and 8 gold-plated contact versions.

“With applications becoming increasingly sophisticated, original equipment manufacturers are expected to provide products to time critical applications to meet the challenges in todays manufacturing world,” said Joe Amato, Director of Sales and Marketing at Binder-USA. “We’re excited about these new SMT receptacles in our M12 product line. New designs like this allow us to offer more advanced solutions that our customers are requesting.”

Binder’s SMT connectors offer optional housings in various heights, which allows for flexible installation and the insulated body is made of temperature resistant LCP. These panel mount versions are IP67 rated, protecting the panel from FOD and liquids.
