CONEC offers a full line of industrial grade connectors and connection systems that include rugged IP67 to IP69K-sealing and ease of mateability for harsh factory conditions. CONEC provides a variety of M12 connector options that can be customized for the food and beverage market. Compliant with the highest levels of protection required by IEC specifications, the Industrial Circular M12 connectors feature a robust stainless steel housing that is entirely dustproof and waterproof. The resilient connectors retain their integrity even under the harsh conditions found in the food processing industry.
"Users in food and beverage manufacturing requested a sophisticated connector solution that combined ease of installation with sealing up to IP69K," said Peter Persico, technical support specialist for CONEC. "The Industrial Circular M12 Series connectors enable designers to incorporate these new water- and dust-tight interconnections that are also resistant to shock, vibration and other common disturbances into equipment specified for use in food and beverage processing applications."
Because the food and beverage industry has specific requirements regarding chemical resistances, as well as for the quality of materials used to meet strict hygienic requirements, these industrial grade connectors are resistant to the harsh cleaning agents commonly used in high pressure cleaning processes. Also, uptime and productivity are crucial to meeting production and packaging goals in food and beverage applications and because CONEC's Industrial Circular M12 Connectors are sealed and feature rugged housing, they provide wear-free connectivity for the highest level of reliability and long-term stability. This robustness makes them ideal for food processing applications that require continuous production cycles.
