TE Connectivity Offers The Intercontec M12 Motor Connector
TE Connectivity, is offering the first 630 V power class connector for small servo motors that provides all-in-one connectivity for power, signal and data. Their Intercontec M12 Motor Connector was released in September 2017, and is a compact, robust metal connector for installations based on one-cable solutions and covers the digital transmission of 2- and 4- wire encoder protocols like Hiperface DSL, BiSS, EnDat 2.2, ACURO link and SCS open link. It has applications for servo, stepper, linear, and spindle motors.
The Intercontec M12 Motor Connector features rotatable angled motor connectors with individually adjustable cable outlet directions for variable mounting, a fast locking system, and IP66/67 protection against dust and water.
