Amphenol’s enhanced connectors mate to PCB with straight or right angle solder pins - ideal for high speed data transmission devices in harsh environments

07 June 2016

Amphenol Industrial Products Group, has enhanced its Max M12 product line to include board level connectors that mate to a PCB board with straight or right angle solder pins. These new connectors are ideal for high speed data transmission devices found in harsh environments.

Max M12 can easily transmit high speed data in environments where there is high vibration, moisture, salt, dirt and debris Applications include camera and communication systems on construction, mining and agricultural equipment as well as rail and mass transit communication systems and for ruggedized factory automation.

It is field installable and repairable Max M12 offers discrete connections that seal in harsh environments without requiring overmolds The Max M12 family is based on IEC 61076-2-101 and SAE J2839. They are backward compatible and can be mated with any standard M12 connector with the same indexing

The connectors are rated to 4 A, and can withstand extreme temperatures ranging from 55°C to 125°C with all versions being rated at IP67 or above, making them dust- and waterproof, resistant to high pressure wash downs and water immersion The Max M12 will also endure a salt spray test for up to 240 hours.

This enhanced Max M12 PCB header mates to an in-line that can withstand connector-to-cable retention forces of 444 N and contact retention forces to 110 N. The in-line mate is housed in an HDM 12 EX impact resistant metal or plastic shell and both are available as 90° right angle or straight versions. The metal version is required for shielding. Both the 4- and 5-pin configurations are available with A, B, D and P polarity codes Additional pin counts and codes are available upon request.
