Miniature connectors
Filter products
Number of contacts
This indicates the number of contacts the connector has.
Locking Type
The locking system describes how the pin and socket elements are joined.
  • M16 The connectors can be screwed together to secure the connection. M stands for metric thread and the number stands for the external diameter.
Degree of protection
The degrees of protection according to IEC60529 apply to various articles and provide information on protection against the intrusion of water and solids such as dust.
  • IP67 Fully protects against touch and against the intrusion of dust. Protects against water intrusion in temporary immersion (depth: 1 m; duration: 30 minutes).
  • IP68 Fully protects against touch and against the intrusion of dust. Protects against water intrusion in sustained submersion (depth: 2 m; duration: 24 hours), requirements specification by agreement between producer and user.
Version
The choice of version allows the definition of certain technical specifications – for example the type of cable outlet or the size.
Connector Type
Connectors are differentiated by installation type: those that are mounted in a device housing (panel mount) and those that are attached to cables.
  • Cable mounting Connectors with cable already moulded or for self-assembly.
  • Housing assembly Connectors that can be mounted to device housings. These can be fixed by means of a locking nut or be screwed in (requires a threaded hole).
Shielded Option
Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) means that a connector is shielded or shieldable. This is required when it is necessary to protect the signals or data conducted by the connector, as well as to protect external devices, from disturbance due to electromagnetic effects.
Product segment
binder areas of application or type of connector.
  • Miniature Connectors with an external diameter of 16–21.5 mm and various locking systems.
Termination
The termination type determines how cables, single wires or PCBs can be joined with the connector.
  • screw clamp The wires in a cable are pressed in the contact element radially by means of a screw, establishing the electrical contact.
  • single wires Connectors with contacts attached to individual wires ex factory. These can then be connected individually.
  • solder The contact and the individual wires of a cable are connected using solder.

These circular connectors according to DIN EN 61076-2-106, which are available as straight and angled cable versions as well as flange versions, comply with protection class IP67. The connectors are offered with 2 to 24 contacts with dip solder, crimp, screw clamp, solder and stranded wires and are also available with a moulded cable. Some versions are shieldable and users can expect more than 500 mating cycles. The 8-pole DIN versions are AWG compliant.
