8-pin M8 connector - compact design with high performance

M8 connector - 8 pin - ESCHA

As sensors become increasingly complex and compact, the information density that needs to be transmitted is constantly increasing. This calls for connectivity that is both compact and multipole at the same time. This is why ESCHA is expanding its M8 connector range with 8-pole variants. The 8-pole M8 connectors are available with open cable end or as connecting cable and matching chassis parts.

Two cable qualities

As a user, you have a choice of 2 cable qualities. A PUR cable (S370) and a PVC cable (P00). Thanks to a connection cross-section of up to 0.25 mm², the M8 connectors with eight poles have a low voltage drop. Both cable qualities meet the requirements of the automation industry.

Wide range of applications

The new M8 connectors comply with IEC 61076-2-104. They are dust and water proof in accordance with protection class IP65, IP67 and IP68 and can be used without problems in environments with temperatures ranging from -30°C to +90°C. Read more about sensor and actuator cables.

Different variants of 8-pin M8 connectors

The 8-pin M8 connectors are available in various variants, such as straight and angled connectors in male or female versions, with open cable end or connecting cable in various standard lengths or in a customer-specific length (custom made).
