Motiongrade Series

MotionGrade™ M23 and M40 Circular DIN Connectors are designed to excel in performance and reliability in the most demanding environments. All M23 and M40 products are IP67 rated. Ideally suited for advanced servo drive encoder feedback applications, packaging, robotic, printing, machine tool, medical and automation environments where control signal transmission or power are required in a robust and compact delivery system. Standard power insert arrangements from 6-9 positions, up to 630V and 28A. Signal arrangements range from 12-17 positions, up to 160V and 10A. The M23 Hybrid Series ensures a compact, robust delivery system for power, signal and communication in one connector by utilizing an Ethernet™ quad element design for decentralized systems and daisy-chained environments. The new Metrifit™ molded strain relief features the industry's most compact excellent EMC and IP protection.
