IP67-rated M16 connector for ac/dc motors

The low-profile (0.867-in.-tall) M16 and M16/12 Twintus connectors from Sealcon LLC, Centennial, Colo., meet IP67 requirements for ac and dc motors, and when retrofitted with an M23 footprint, can handle M22 applications as well. The M12 side mates to common M12 signal feedback cord sets. Power and signal inputs are color coded to prevent connection errors. The connectors work in temperatures from –40 to 257°F. The housing can be nickel plated or have a black-chromate coating. An optional EMI shield helps eliminate EMI/RFI. And the entire connector is said to cost 50% less than standard M16 connectors.
