Weidmuller Intros Fully EMI Shielded Cables
Shielded cables and connectors.
Richmond, VA — Weidmuller has introduced fully shielded M12 cables with a braided shield connected to the coupling nut. This design provides 360° protection of the connector and the cable against EMI, and gives users fully shielded and secure signal connections. With cULus approval, the new M12 connecting cables are suitable for use on machinery in a broad range of applications.

The company's broad range of M12 fully shielded cables includes 3-, 4- and 5-pole versions as single- and double-ended cables. These are all available with straight and right angle connectors for applications with limited clearance space. As with most Weidmuller Sensor Actuator Interface connectors and cables, the fully shielded M12 versions have a self-securing ratchet coupling nut for secure connections in applications where shock and vibration are present. The feature helps eliminate risk of loose connections that can cause unreliable and intermittent signal transmission.

The cables are especially suitable for use in the most demanding continuous flex C-track applications, have halogen-free PUR jackets, and are rated for over 2 million bending cycles. Their increased performance and lifespan benefits users through reduced maintenance needs and optimized machine up time. In addition, the water- and dust-tight IP67-rated connectors ensure a reliable connection outside of the cabinet, directly on the machine.
