ITT Industries/Cannon, represented in Australia by Switches Plus Components , has launched a small motor connector, the M3.
It is 50% lighter and has a significantly reduced installed cost when compared to conventional designs.
The M3’s simpler harnessing reduces assembly and installation time in motor applications.
Requiring minimal space, the connector comes completely sealed and shielded for high reliability.
Designed for motors with a flange size of 60mm x 60mm or less, key features of the M3 connector include a high degree of vibration and shock resistance, IP67 sealing, a housing that contains a single power and three feedback insulators separated by metal shielded walls and two sealed entries for power and feedback cables.
Specifications are 48V/5A power rating, operating voltage of 50V to 630V and current rating of 2A to 10A.
A zinc die cast shell, Fluor rubber sealing parts, high temperature insulator material and high quality contacts ensure a rugged, reliable design.
The M3 connector also meets all the requirements for DIN EN 1984 safety compliance.
M3 connectors enhance a variety of servo motor applications including the machine tool industry, packaging, factory automation, material handling, printing, food packaging, assembly lines, motion control, marking and labelling, robotics, production machines and laser trimming.
