- Published: Thursday, 15 May 2014 08:15
The new M23 Hybrid round plug-in connector from Phoenix Contact is an all-in-one connector that securely transfers signals, data, and power. The compact M23 plug-in connector can handle currents up to 30 A and voltages up to 850 V DC or 630 V AC.
Besides a centrally located PE protective conductor, the connector profile also features four power contacts and four signal contacts. With a diameter of 0.8 mm each, the four additional data contacts are designed for secure data transmission in accordance with CAT5 and can be replaced as needed with four signal contacts, each measuring 1 mm in diameter. This means up to eight signal contacts are available if necessary for the application at hand.
The IP65/67-compliant plug-in connectors are designed for temperatures ranging from -40 to +125 °C. Both straight and angled device connectors are available, with the angled version rotatable for optimum cable connections.
