Connecting miniature sensors to Ethernet networks

binder is announcing the availability of its new 818 Series: M8 D-Coded connectors. The company states that these are likely to be of especial interest engineers who need to connect miniature sensors to Ethernet networks across applications that use the latest automation technology. The new M8 D-Code connectors are specifically designed to support the high data bandwidths that are now becoming more common in smart factories. When mated and locked the new connectors protect to IP67.

In physical size, binder 818 Series connectors are around 30 per cent smaller than conventional M12 connectors, but are capable of enabling high-performance Ethernet connections of up to 100Mbit/s Cat. 5e according to IEEE 802.3. Because the M8 connectors are Power over Ethernet (PoE+) compatible, they can supply both data and power to the sensor simultaneously. The new connectors feature 4 gold-plated brass contacts which are symmetrically arranged, and a Nickel-plated threaded ring. The units have a rated current of 4A and a rated voltage of 63V DC. Termination is by screw clamp and wires from 0.14 to 0.5mm ² can be accommodated. binder says that the operating temperature range for the new connectors is wide, citing a -25degC to +85degC band, and that it has designed the 818 Series to be capable of more than 100 mating cycles.
