High level of safety through new, robust and space-saving connectors for Profinet and Ethernet networks in railway and transport technology.

PROVERTHA is extending its range of M8/M12 round connector solutions for demanding environments. M8 crimp CF connectors with 360 degree shielding and D-coding in protection class IP67 are now also available. The compact 4-pin M8 connectors are specified by the PNO according to Profinet guidelines and enable robust and space-saving solutions for Profinet and Ethernet networks. Applications can be found in railway and transport technology as well as in factory automation for automatic punching presses and robot applications. The compact all-metal housing allows use in limited installation space and protects against interference in harsh environments. The turned crimp contacts guarantee a high level of network security, while the plastics used for railway applications are certified according to EN 45 545-2. Further technical features are a rated current of 4 A, a rated voltage of 60 V DC, an insulation resistance of ±100 MΩ, a conductor cross-section of AWG 26 to 22 and a cable diameter of 4.5 to 6.9 mm. The connectors can be used in the temperature range from -20 to 85°C.
