Yamaichi Electronics offers an innovation with internal push-pull locking for M12 connectors. The system only requires as much installation space as M12 connectors with screw locks. However, the classic screw lock is still available. Moreover, M12 sockets can be completely integrated into the end device.
The industrial connector: Y-Con RJ45
Y-Con was developed for harsh industrial applications. Hence the new push-pull version is designed for IP protection class IP67 / IP68 / IP69K and is 100% backwards-compatible with the long-established Y-ConCover-40. The system still offers the well-known shock and vibration resistance, which was already implemented into the predecessor product. Additionally also cables with M12 (Y-Circ M) or metal push-pull connectors (Y-Circ P) are available.
The metal circular push-pull connector Y-Circ P with patented half-shell design is used, for example, in measuring and test equipment. With its robust push-pull locking mechanism fast and easy contacting and release is possible.
Yamaichi Electronics has maintained a production site in Frankfurt (Oder), Germany, since 2006. As a result of its very positive development, production is now being expanded. This will bring with it numerous advantages for customers: short delivery distances, minimal lead times and the option of rapidly implementing individual customer requirements.
