Molex, Phoenix Contact, Murrelektronik and Binder, market leaders in M12 connection technology, have announced a co-operation agreement to drive the standardisation of M12 push-pull connectors.
For users of the push-pull interlock, traditional screw connections are a thing of the past. The interlock is achieved automatically when plugging in, without the need for tools, offering significant advantages during installation, especially in confined spaces.
Thanks to the co-operation agreement, customers can choose between several independent manufacturers. The interlock mechanism is based on the Brad Ultra-Lock technology in accordance with proprietary Molex specifications. Independent of any specific manufacturer, this ensures physical compatibility of the M12 push-pull connectors.
Even in harsh ambient conditions, the push-pull technology ensures a reliable interlock between field and device connectors that is independent of the user. The fast locking system offers an installation comfort significantly higher than with traditional locking mechanisms. The positive locking mechanical design and the radial O-ring seal provide robust protection against water ingress and inhibit signals from being interrupted by shock and vibration.
