Belden’s New Cordsets Deliver Greater Power and Performance Reliability in Confined Industrial Automation Settings

Industry-proven M8 technology from Lumberg Automation provides a robust solution for the most demanding network requirements

ST. LOUIS - November 24, 2015 - Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission critical applications, introduces the new M8 5-pole B-coded cordsets. With an extended power range and snap and snap/thread attachments, the new cordsets ensure high performance reliability and make installation in the field easy, even when available space is limited.

"With the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) growing in popularity, our world is becoming even more interconnected and dependent on reliable network communication, which is contributing to tremendously high performance standards and power requirements across all industries," said Fabian Seymer, product manager at Belden. "Engineers need a reliable solution that provides greater power at a smaller size while ensuring the highest performance in the field."

The M8 5-pole B-coded cordsets are available in both male and female, and deliver the highest application flexibility on the market. The new connectors can be used in combination with Lumberg Automation's new LioN-Power system, featuring M12 technology and multiprotocol functionality, creating a one-stop solution for meeting the demanding industrial connectivity requirements of the IIoT.

The industry-proven M8 technology offers outstanding handling characteristics and meets certification according to global industry standards, such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 2238 for cable assemblies and fittings in industrial control and signal distribution and EN61076-104 for connectors in electronic equipment.

The M8 5-pole B-coded cordsets facilitate reliable transmission of power and signals via a compact interface to small electronic drives and sensors, making them an ideal solution for miniature robotics applications.
