Compact M8x1-Connectors for Profinet


Halver, 8 May 2019 – The trend towards more and more compact terminal devices also has impacts on the size of interfaces. As a consequence, and in addition to the M12x1-connectors already available, the connectivity specialist ESCHA extends its comprehensive Profinet program by compact variants in housing style M8x1. The M8x1-connectors with D-coding and four-pole interface meet the IEC 61076-2-104 standard and are adapted for a faster and safer data transmission according to Cat5e due to their reliable 360°-shielding.

Throughout the entire development process of the new Profinet-connectors, a high-performance data transmission was in focus. In order to facilitate a high availability and performance, a point was made of details. For example, the shielding connection, the 360°-shielding concept and the wires connection. There is so much knowledge in the new M8x1-components that it is not only about another coding but an entirely new development.

The comprehensive Profinet-program

The new M8x1-product program for Profinet consists of connection- and junction cables which can be immediately obtained in straight or angled housing styles as well as male or female versions. Matching shielded device interfaces in straight or angled receptacles complete the portfolio. Together with the already available M12x1-components in four-pole D-coded and eight-pole X-coded as well as RJ45-connectors, ESCHA disposes of a comprehensive connectivity-program for Profinet-applications.
