More and more 12 pole M12 connectors are being used to transfer signals. To secure proper contacting Binder now offers shielded and unshielded field wireable cable connectors with solder contacts. These contacts used to be on one level which made soldering very complicated. Now the three inner contacts have got a longer soldering area to make soldering easier. This product improvement has no effect on the price.
When mated and locked the connectors fulfil IP67.
