More and more industrial connector technology manufacturers are relying on time-saving PushPull concepts for their connectors that are easy to operate. The classic screw lock of the M12 circular connector always takes a huge amount of time to install when assembling multiple interfaces. In a direct comparison of the M12 PushPull to the traditional screw lock, the new interlock technology can be connected around 75% faster.
Automation requirements focus on simple and safe operation, acoustic feedback and savings in terms of time and costs. HARTING can now meet all these requirements and is working alongside market competitors to drive forward the standardisation of a comprehensive M12 PushPull market standard. This should result in an IEC 61076–2–010 and IEC 61076-3-126 standard that ensures a comprehensive solution for factory automation, ensuring the security of investments and second sources for users.
