Snap In M8 Male Connector | Overmolded Male Female 3 4 5 Pin Plug

Project Description

M8 Snap In Connector - 3-Pin , 4-Pin , 5-Pin

Overview Of M8 Snap In Connector 

Snap in M8 connector is waterproof circular connector without locking thread , the connection and dis-connection of the male and female connector is made by push and pull , it’s quick and convinent , so it’s also called quick dis-connect M8 connector . As the push-pull couldn’t gurantee very good waterproof performance , the M8 snap in connector is the only type that is IP50 , if you need IP67 , please check our thread locking M8 cable .

The M8 snap in connector can be male or female , have coding types as A coded 3 pin , 4 pin , rated voltage 60V , current 3A , B coded 5 pin , rated voltage 30V , current 3A , conduct size 24AWG , 0.25mm² .

CAZN M8 snap in connector is prewired M8 connector , overmolded with PVC or PUR cable , PUR cable jacket have much better performance while used in harsh environment .

Snap in M8 connector had been widely used for automatic technology , logistics warehousing system , sensor , sorting systems .

The snap in M8 male circular connector design and produced accord to comply with 61076-2-104 standard , moulded type , unshielded , IP65 waterproof .

Application For M8 Connector Snap In Type 

The connector had been used widely for automation technology , such as industrial sensors and actuators , so it’s also sensor M8 connector .

Industrial sensor is a detection device that can sense the measured information , and can transform the sensed information into electrical signals or other required forms of information output according to certain rules , so as to meet the requirements of information transmission , processing , storage , display , Records and controls , etc .

The M8 connector will connect the sensor to the control system , and trigger the executor to start some movement .

Snap in M8 connector is designed quick connector and disconnect , without screw , push and pull will connect and disconnect the male and female .

It is very suitable for the following work scenarios, which require frequent disconnection and connection, the space is small, and there is no space for operating threads, but the requirements for waterproof level are not particularly high, such as some special sensors, outdoor display devices, etc.
