The demand for circular connectors has increased significantly due to the boom in the automation industry. As more and more sensors and actuators are integrated into machine and system installations, circular connectors have become the preferred connection approach. Various designs based on IEC 61076 are available enabling complete installation solutions in harsh industrial environments – from the control cabinet to the sensor. These include overmolded cable assembies, PCB and panel mount connectors in different variants and hybrid solutions.
The circular connector portfolio continues to evolve, creating new applications and industries. They are used not only for the classic connection of sensors, but also for power supply.
One common feature connects all variants: their standardized and robust suitability for industrial use.
