Yamaichi Electronics (Yamaichi) is teaming up with TE Connectivity (TE) to produce and promote a new design of push-pull M12 circular metric connector with an inner locking design for various industrial applications. The two companies are cooperating to campaign for the design to be included in a new IEC standard for M12 connectors with push-pull locking.
“Yamaichi produces high-performance interconnection solutions for use in the most demanding applications of electronic systems,” says Monika Kuklok, director of product management Industrial Communication and Power at TE Connectivity. “It has created some interesting and efficient technology for M12 push-pull connectors, and we want to help it establish the standard in the market.”
Technical cooperation between the two companies will lead to the introduction of different versions of the connectors in the coming months. Overmolded connectors with A, B, D-coding are already available, and the portfolio will be enlarged with field assembly types and further codings soon. This will quickly put Yamaichi and TE and in a position to support the market with a broad product portfolio that will enable customers to introduce the new technology into their devices.
The market for M12 connectors with a push-pull interface is currently fragmented, owing to suppliers offering mutually incompatible designs. Yamaichi and TE will work together to establish Yamaichi’s design with inner locking as the accepted standard as defined by the IEC. Yamaichi submitted its original proposal for the standard last year. An important advantage of the Yamaichi design is that it is compatible with standard M12 connectors. Additionally, its push-pull locking mechanism allows fast and secure locking and unlocking – by only requiring the same outer space compared to standard screw type versions. Another feature is the possibility to integrate the connector into the device, junction box etc.
“The market needs a standard around M12 push-pull connectors so that it can be confident of using proven technology and so time-to-market of new products incorporating the inner push-pull technology can be cut back,” says Christoph Prem, Sales & Marketing Director at Yamaichi Electronics. “The inner locking design merits being incorporated into an IEC standard.” Contact Cabcon A/S for further information.Læs mere
The new FPC/FFC test sockets from Yamaichi Electronics are developed and qualified in Munich and produced in its own production site in Frankfurt (Oder). This guarantees the fast implementation of all individual customer requirements. The high level of vertical integration enables top quality with short lead times.
Test without a trace
The probe pins only touch the material at a tiny point and only apply enough pressure to make a secure connection, but the material will not be deformed. The vertical placement of the pins causes no scratches, furrows or grooves and the Device under Test (DuT) leaves the test socket almost without trace.
From 0.3 mm Pitch
More and more contacts in less and less space require the highest degree of precision. Yamaichi Electronics specialises in high-precision test solutions and offers test sockets from a pitch of 0.3 mm in the highest material and production quality.
Yamaichi Electronics uses only high quality materials for its test sockets. The housings are made of PEEK and anodised aluminum. The individually tested probe pins are made of a beryllium copper alloy coated with nickel and gold. For special requirements also pins with other surfaces can be used.
Yamaichi Electronics guarantees up to 50,000 mating cycles for each FPC/FFC test socket. The test sockets are adapted to the customer needs. Upon request, the right PCB is delivered as well.
