Right angle connectors with 360 degree shielding

Belden's Lumberg Automation product program now include molded M12 male and female right-angle connectors that have 360 deg shielding and can transmit data even in extremely demanding environments.

Belden has extended its Lumberg Automation product program to include new molded M12 male and female right-angle connectors with 360 deg shielding. These connectors permit the reliable transmission of analog and digital data, even in environments with strong electromagnetic fields. The connectors are available as either single-ended or double-ended cordsets for actuators/sensors, Profibus and Ethernet cables, and connection cables. The angular design of the connectors facilitates quick installations, even where space is at a premium. 

Product features include an operating temperature range of -25 C to +85 C, high shock and vibration resistance, and IP67, IP68, and IP69K ratings approvals. Capable of withstanding high-pressure/steam-jet cleaning, the male and female connectors can be used even in the harshest environmental conditions. Already including straight connectors with 360 degree shielding, the Lumberg Automation program can now provide an ideal M12 connection cable for actuators/sensors, passive distributors or Profibus/Ethernet modules in almost any installation scenario.

For these 360 deg shielded connectors, actuator/sensor connection cables can be obtained with four, five or eight poles. Depending on the version, the rated voltage is 30, 60 or 240 V ac/dc and the rated current is 4 or 8 A. Insulation resistance is >109 Ω for all versions. The connectors for Profibus and Ethernet cordsets and connection cables are B or D coded, and have a rated current of 4 A and a rated voltage of 60 or 240 V ac/dc. 

The molded body and housing are made of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). The insert is either of the same material (Profibus cordsets) or polybutylene terephthalate (PBT). The contacts are gold plated. The molded cables, made of PUR or PVC, are available in lengths of 2, 5, 10 and 15 meters.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
