Plastic replaces metal!

Foremost Electronics has added the Binder 713 series M12 plastic connector to its extensive range of high quality industrial connectors.

The Binder 713 series female socket is a reliable, low-cost, direct replacement for metal-bodied versions. Its plastic housing is manufactured from rugged polyamide and has exactly the same dimensions as industry standard metal versions.

Front and rear mounted versions are available in 4, 5 and 8-pole formats with either PG9 or M16 locking threads. Protected to IP67, the 713 series has solder contacts for wires up to 0.25mm² and the housing can accommodate cable sizes from 3.5 to 5.0mm. Contacts are gold-plated bronze with a current rating of 2 to 4A and solder bucket and dip solder versions are available. The new plastic 713 series connector has a minimum mating cycle of 100 cycles.

Alan Cook, Managing Director of Foremost Electronics, comments; "We have a long established relationship with Binder Connectors and we are pleased to be able to offer their new low cost plastic connectors. The new 713 series offers competitive pricing with no reduction in performance or quality"

Typical applications for the new Binder 713 series include industrial controls, drives, sensors and automation equipment.
