7/8” connectors were first utilised in the 60’s by the automotive industry for use on their production lines as they made the replacement of solenoid valves and limit switches much easier. Since then they have become a vital component for distributing power and data in industrial automation applications.

“We have worked closely with Shield to devise a connector solution for every possible application”, explains Motion29 director, Andrew Wilkinson, “The new range is available with either a straight or moulded body and in a choice of Polyurethane or PVC cable. A wide selection of receptacles for the connectors is available to fulfil all the requirements of the end user.”

Motion29’s range is compatible with existing 7/8” connectors on the market and is designed to withstand harsh industrial environments. Rated waterproof to IP68 the 7/8” connector offers a competitively priced solution for many industrial applications.
