Circular Connector Series M8 M12

Circular connectors are indispensable in today's industrial automation. The application fields of standardised circular connectors range from communication technology such as Ethernet, PROFINET, Profibus, Devicenet and CANbus, to clever power supply solutions. The circular connectors must be able to withstand wind, water and vibration in harsh environments, all of which is possible thanks to the standardised screw connections in M8 and M12 thread dimensions and IP68 classification. E-tec offers a selection of the most common codes (A, B and D) in accordance with IEC 61076-2-104 and IEC 61076-2-101 standards. The circular connectors are available as a solder version (THT) for PCB mounting, solder-cup terminals, panel mount, cable terminated or supplied integrated into a complete cable assembly.

E-tec also offers industry standard circular connectors, where the highest level of reliability and performance are the focus, in customer-specific dimensions and shapes. Ask us, we will be pleased to help you with your application development and integration.

High Temperature Polyimide Sockets

E-tec introduce any shape, any pattern, any pin count custom hi temp sockets - customers can build their own turned pin socket and E-tec will produce the parts in days with no tooling costs ( unless a new brass terminal design is required ) and at a price comparable to conventional turned pin sockets.

Sockets and adaptors are produced in FR4 or hi temp polyimide for applications requiring elevated operating temperatures up to 300 degrees C. Sockets can also be produced in MT40 and Rogers material for special applications.

E-tec offer a wide range of sockets including circular, rectangular, single, double, triple strips etc. on any pitch. Elevated sockets used for example with LED displays can be produced by incorporating a raised turned pin terminal. Applications for hi temp sockets are found in the Oil and Gas industry, Aerospace and Defence, Industrial and Instrumentation, Sensors, Medical, Automotive and Transport. Enquiries are invited – send a simple sketch to we will be pleased to offer a quotation.

Waterproof connectors

Don't get caught out by April showers - the E-tec Interconnect range of waterproof connectors will keep your kit dry!

Offering IP67 rated waterproof USB and waterproof modular jack connectors and cable assemblies, with mating caps and a range of pcb and pigtail termination options, we will be pleased to discuss your requirement in depth.

E-tec offers existing solution to obsolete MOLEX KK series items

A key feature of our female plug crimp contact connectors is the retaining 'lugs' which some manufacturers have removed from their current designs.

These lugs prevent sideways movement and avoid bent pins on the male header.

If this feature is important to you, E-tec have a solution to maintain the performance of your product without compromising quality.

Please refer to our datasheet or contact us for more information.
