Chogori, a supplier of rugged and harsh environment connectors, has developed a series of sealed M8 connectors for the process control market. Utilized on factory floors for automation, packaging, material handling, and food and beverage applications, the M Series is available in IP67-rated versions. The screw-locking, waterproof M8 connector ensures a safe and secure connection that is impervious to vibration, liquids, dust and other materials—which is particularly important in food and beverage splash areas.
The M8 Series connectors are available in plastic housings that are resistant to chemicals commonly found in process control environments. Contact pins are made of copper alloy with gold-over-nickel plating for mechanical stability. The brass connector body and cable are overmolded for strength and better operating performance.
The compact M Series connectors are offered in variations ranging from three to four contacts, a rated current of 3 A, a rated voltage of 30 V or 60 V and an operating temperature of –40° C to +85° C.
