The Dynamic D8000 series is a new high-current series of pluggable connectors in TE’s Dynamic Series. They inherit the normal Dynamic Series features like the audible lock design and crimping contacts. The Dynamic product portfolio have both Wire-to-Wire (WTW) and Wire-to-Board (WTB) that provides connector solutions ranging from signal level circuitry through power circuit connectivity in a ruggedized, industrialized package. Vibration and shock proven, the intelligent audible locking system and unique crimping contact design drive efficiency and long service life through minimizing downtime in the application.Dynamic D8000 connectors carry currents as high as 100A per pin for WTW, and 90A for WTB making them suitable for power supply systems for industries like Battery Test Equipment (BTE), Battery Management System (BMS), factory automation, robotics, etc. They have a rated voltage of 1000V AC/DC, and withstand voltages of up to 3000V AC. Connectors require only two positions, rather than multiple positions when using connectors with small current-carrying capability, which for wire-to-board versions saves important space on the PCB. Wire-to-wire (WTW)and Wire-to-board (WTB) options are both available.
The new Push-Pull variant makes it easier to deploy M12 system because of the easy assembling process. The Push-Pull technology saves time during installation compared to traditional M12 alternatives. When plugging in the connector, it will give haptic and acoustic feedback when it is correctly locked. This also allows the connector to be mated blindly. To be applicable in harsh environments, the connector will have an IP67 rating for resistance to intrusion of dust and water, ensuring efficient, high-quality and reliable connectivity with a high integrity signal transmission.
Push-Pull technology allows the installer to lock the connector without the use of any tool. This makes it possible to have a higher density of PCB socket connectors compared to traditional M12 connectors. Locking the connector without a tool saves installing time in the field. This lowers the total applied cost. The new sockets of the push-pull portfolio will be compatible with traditional M12 screw type connectors. The push-pull interface with inner locking used in TE’s M12 connectors complies with IEC 61076-2-012 specification for circular connectors with inner push-pull locking based on M12 connector interfaces according to IEC 61076-2-101, IEC 61076-2-109, IEC 61076-211 2-111 and IEC 61076-2-113.
Here are the following ways M12 Push-Pull connectors support ease of use and lower applied costs for your applications:
• Helps reduce assembly times while providing reliable and secure connections with the use of haptic and acoustic feedback, enabling blind mating capabilities
• Offers a low profile, compact foot-print and is backwards compatible with standard M12 connectors
• Positive locking design provides built-in reliability which eliminates connector related intermittent signals in the harshest environments
• IP67 rating for resistance to dust and water is a key factor in ensuring high quality and reliability in harsh environments.
