What are M23 connectors used for？
Servo motors are widely used in servo systems in the field of automation, such as CNC punching machine, bending machine, shearing machine, PLC program controller, various types of automobile testing equipment, assembly equipment, welding equipment, had been used to control the operation of components, have accurate position, velocity or torque output.
In the automatic control system, there are mainly three parts, the sensor, the controller, the actuator, and the servo motor belongs to a kind of actuator. After receiving the signal from the sensor, the controller will send the operation data to the servo motor to control the torque and speed of the servo motor shaft, and driving the components in the equipment to operate, and the speed and position can be precisely controlled. Many Servo motor systems are used in automation equipment in the industry.
In the servo motors field, size and space is a important factor which affects the application range of servo motors. As the connector mostly is installed on the external interface of the servo motors , the height of the connector will directly affect the overall size of the servo motor. If the height of the connector is too high, the overall height of the servo motor will be too high, if the width of the connector is too wide, the small-sized servo motor cannot be installed.
M23 connectors is mostly used in the connection of servo motors. They have better protection performance than waterproof junction boxes and are easy to operate. M23 waterproof connector is the most ideal connector solutions for servo motors.

Why do waterproof connector manufacturers need to tell users the safety applicaiton of waterproof connectors
More and more applications choose M23 connectors, and users hope that the connectors can be used in more complex and harsh environments, so they also put forward higher requirements for the performance of the connectors. Therefore, waterproof connector manufacturers continue to research and use advanced technology to improve the M23 connectors, and the performance and quality of all aspects have been continuously improved. However, for M23 connectors, in addition to maintaining good performance, ensure safe application will also provide guarantees for operator safety and equipment safety.
Most of the aviation plug M23 connectors are used in more severe and complex environments, such as the seaside or the environment around seawater. At this time, special anti-corrosion treatment is required for the shell of the M23 connector, because the seawater Chlorine is very active and can erode the surface of many metals, causing serious corrosion. For example, galvanizing and other performance treatments can resist the erosion of seawater and wind very well and ensure the safety of connections.
The use of the aviation plug M23 connector cannot exceed its working temperature range. If it is used under too high temperature, the characteristics of some plastic materials will change, which will affect the reliability and protection performance of the connection. If it works under very low temperature , also poses a risk, as inconsistent shrinkage due to low temperatures may cause the connector shell to crack, affect protection performance.
In the process of using the M23 connector, it is necessary to follow the operating specifications. For example, in the process of tightening the locking nut, it is necessary to follow the appropriate force. Excessive force will cause structural damage, and too small force will affect the waterproof performance. Similarly, when crimping the contact it is necessary to use the appropriate tool, the wrong tool will lead to poor crimping, deformation of the contact, or poor electrical conductivity due to poor crimping.
All electronic components including M23 connector products have a service life. If they work in an unsuitable environment, the service life will be greatly reduced, causing unexpected product failures. As a frequently used waterproof connector, the application environment of the M23 connector should be evaluated,ensure the conditions is under its capacity , and maintenance should be done during use.
