July 26, 2010 - Binder-USA expanded its M8 Series 718 and 768 connector line with a range of new panel-mounted receptacles. Options include PCB mountable and prewired versions. The M8 connectors are highly durable and their small size makes them ideal for use with industrial sensors. The new male or female receptacles are available with 3, 4 or 6 gold-plated contacts. The prewired versions have crimped leads and are offered in front- and rear-mounted housings. PCB-mountable versions feature straight or right-angle PCB pins and a shielding sheet for mounting onto printed circuit boards. The receptacles are mating-compatible with all M8 field-attachable connectors and cordsets.Binder-USA, LP is a subsidiary of Franz Binder GmbH & Co., a German-based designer and manufacturer of circular connectors and cordsets for use in industrial environments including factory automation, process control, and medical technology applications.
