The continuing design trend to make smaller machines and devices creates a need for small connectors with a high number of contacts. Phoenix Contact has reacted to this trend and developed a series of connectors for high-density M12 signal connections. The market’s first field-wired M12 connectors in 12 and 17 positions are available with Piercecon® connection technology. With Piercecon, field installers can easily make signal connections in three simple steps – strip the cable jacket, insert the wires, and screw the housing tight. No soldering, no wire prep!
