M12 power cables and connectors - ESCHA

M12 Power - ESCHA

Because electronic devices are more and more stable, the demand for compact power supply increases. ESCHA has expanded its product portfolio M12x1 Power with two new coding types. In addition to the available 4-pole components with S-coding (630V, 12A) and T-coding (63V, 12A), components with L-coding (63V, 4-pole without FE in accordance with PNO guidelines) and K-coding (630V, 12A, 4 + PE) offers ESCHA L and K coding types for power supply via standardized M12x1 interface.

Fields of application M12 Power

The compact housing makes the products suitable for power supply in automation. Fieldbus-controlled I/O boxes, power supplies or small servomotors are among the classic applications. Read more about ESCHA M12 Power cables and connectors

M8x1 I/O-Junction box with active logic-function - ESCHA

The M8x1 I/O junction box with active logic transmits the signals to a central control unit. The individual connections work with the AND and OR logic. I/O junctions with active logic function offer the advantage of a standard cable to a common, unshielded 4- or 5-pole sensor cable.

Compact housing

Because of their extremely compact housing and their low weight, the new ESCHA M8x1 I/O junctions with active logic function have been specially adapted for applications with limited space such as grippers, robots or compact handling units. The M8x1 I/O junction box is available with 4, 8 or 10 connection connectors. Read more about M8x1 I/O junction box

EtherCAT P-codering - Cables and connectors - ESCHA

Data and power via one interface

With the four-pole connection cables and connector chassis parts with P-coding, data and power supply can be connected simultaneously via one M8x1 connector. EtherCAT P connectors have a 360 ° shield according to the IEC 61076-2-104 standard.

Exclude connection errors

The EtherCAT P coding has been developed to exclude connection errors with standard EtherCAT slaves. The EtherCAT P cable prevents all application errors from 24 V I/O level to drives with 400 V AC or 600 V DC and a current of up to 64 A.

Benefits of Ethercat:

  • Free choice of network topology
  • Optimal utilization of the bandwidth
  • High speed
  • Continuity of message processing
  • Very accurate synchronization and extensive diagnostics

ESCHA has simple better data transfer by 'shielded' concept

Data cables from ESCHA bring data from A to B with less data loss. Why? Cables from ESCHA are shielded, which means that the cable has an extra cover.

Less data loss

The shielded casing not only runs through the cable but continues into the connector. ESCHA pulls the shielded casing through to the cable, resulting in less data loss. Read more about data cables.
