Binder-USA has modified the Series 718 and 768 M8 panel-mount connectors to now have a plastic contact body.

This change was made in order to provide better insulation of the contacts towards the housing compared to the previous metal contact body.

The product change is already in place with the 6-pin version and will occur immediately with the 3- and 4-pin male versions at no additional cost. During the transition period mixed deliveries of old and new versions are possible.
