The connectivity specialist ESCHA, introduced 4-pole M12x1-Power products with S- and T-coding types. As of now, the company offers variants with L- and K-coding types. Due to their compact housing style, these products are especially adapted for power supply in the automation field. Fieldbus controlled I/O-boxes, power supply devices or small servo motors are among the classical applications.
The trend is moving towards compact power supply via M12x1
As electronic devices increasingly getting more compact, demand for a similarly compact power supply via the standardized- and industrially proven M12x1-interface (according to IEC 61076-2-111) has risen continuously. To this effect, ESCHA has extended its existing product portfolio ‘M12x1 Power‘by two new coding types. In addition to the available 4-pole components with S-coding (630V, 12A) and T-coding (63V, 12A), components with L-coding (63V, 16A, 4-pole without FE conform to PNO-guidelines) and K-coding (630V, 12A, 4+PE) are immediately available.
Power follows Bus
Besides the obligatory connection- and junction cables, relevant T-junctions, H-junctions and h-junctions with L- and K-coding types are available at market launch as well. The junctions facilitate a decentralized- and structured wiring of energy supply similar to bus wiring. ESCHA designates this approach as ‚Power follows Bus‘. All components have been thoroughly redesigned and are dust- as well as water-proof according to protection classes IP65, IP67, and IP68. They have been designed in such a way as to meet the requirements according to UL 2337. The products enable a large extension of power distribution due to a connection cross-section up to 2.5 mm². The slight voltage drop in contrast to small cross-sections is a big advantage particularly in case of direct current voltage.
