In many areas of machine construction, M8 or M12 PCB connectors are the standard connectors used today. Not only have they been tried and tested in our SAI distributors, they are also used anywhere where harsh environmental conditions require a device design with especially reliable connections.
In addition to excellent connection quality, our M8 and M12 built-in connectors also offer very convenient installation. Certain M8 and M12 types may be soldered to the installation wall at the same distance. The PCB and housing can also be assembled separately before the nut and plug-in insert are combined in the end device.
The new M8 and M12 built-in connectors optimise proven standards while making it extremely easy and convenient to configure IP6x devices. They are suitable for reflow soldering and are available in a number of different variants for different soldering methods.
In the field of equipment manufacturing for the IP6x world, the smart M8 and M12 plug-in connectors offer the perfect solutions. They ensure reliable connections with a convenient device design and efficient final assembly.
All of the components in the entire M8 or M12 plug-in connector series are perfectly coordinated to one another, making design and assembly significantly easier.
Regardless of whether it's an M8 or M12, both plug-in connector types are characterised by a uniform distance from the PCB to the metal housing.
Two-component plug-in connector
Plug-in insert for the PCB; metal nut for the housing. These create the finished M-plug when assembled.
The implementation of reflow solutions for SMD and THR assembly means that the M8 or M12 inserts can be handled in any soldering process.
SAI lines are the perfect complement
At Weidmüller, you will find a wide range of complementary products in the form of lines and customisable plug-in connectors for field wiring.
