Phoenix Contact, HARTING, Molex, Murrelektronik, Binder, CONEC, ESCHA and Weidmüller have come together to establish a standard for the push-pull locking mechanism of M12 connectors on the market. Together, they are pursuing the one goal of ensuring compatibility across manufacturers.
This joint approach resulted in the IEC 61076-2-010; a standard that describes both external and internal locking by utilizing push-pull locking.
The vote on the CDV was approved with an outstanding 92.9% in favor. This indicates that a final form of the IEC mentioned can be expected in December 2020. With this standard, a milestone for automation technology is being worked for - both the saving of installation time and thus costs as well as a safe locking system can be realized.
