Belden Connectors Offer Efficient Way to Transmit High Levels of Power

Latest Lumberg Automation Product Is Excellent for Harsh Environments

St. Louis, Missouri - November 24, 2015 - Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has released its latest offering from the Lumberg Automation family of M12 connectors. The M12 Power Connector is compact, efficient and offers the ability to transmit at high power levels for long periods of time.

The connector takes advantage of new technology that works very well in high temperatures, making it ideal for harsh environments. Its compact design and high power transmission make it a cost-effective solution for operations that need a reliable, flexible connector.

The M12 Power Connector is S-, L-, K- and T-coded. The high voltage and currents ratings combined with the high derating in harsh environmental conditions make this product portfolio unique among the products available on the market. Its small size makes the M12 Power Connector suited for applications that require little space, like automotive, manufacturing, machine building and power transmission. The M12 Power Connector also fulfills global standards, such as UL and VDE and is designed according to D-IN EN 61076-2-111.

"This product is an excellent choice for those who need high power transmission while saving space," said Felix Duello, product manager for Belden. "The M12 Power Connector's compact design means it can be successfully used in the smallest cabinets, while the connector materials allow for a higher derating. If you need to downsize a machine but still transmit at high power, the M12 Power Connector is ideal."
