Measuring 15 × 24.92 mm, including the PCB pins, Phoenix Contact’s M12 plug connector with an integrated Mini-B USB insert is especially suitable for space limited applications. These include applications for data acquisition/logging in onboard systems, visual systems, industrial monitoring cameras as well as for testing and measuring instruments. The molded cables fulfill IP65/IP67 protection rating. The M12 housing offers protection against heavy knocks and blows and can withstand corrosive environments. The connector has an integrated grounding spring contact, which connects the connector to the metal housing. This ensures a continuous ground path, therefore achieving optimum shielding. Additional measures are not required. The PCB plug connectors can be mounted directly onto PCBs, thus eliminating the need for such additional components as soldering lug connections. Equipped with the Speedcon quick connection system, they can be locked with just half a turn, slashing installation time by up to 90% in comparison with conventional thread connection systems. The plug connectors boast a data transmission rate of 480 Mbps, complying with the USB 2.0 standard.

With the April issue, we celebrate the 40th anniversary of IEN Europe. For that occasion we present numerous interesting articles and interviews on technologies that have been groundbreaking over the past decades. An interview with Nexans is on the Evolution of Cables . A technical article by the EMVA on Machine Vision emphasizes the milestones that have been important for the automation industry. A very recent and up-to-date topic, Industry 4.0, is discussed in an Interview with Wibu Systems, a company dedicated to the protection of know-how. IEN Europe April also features a retrospective on Low-voltage Switchgear by Eaton. To celebrate IEN’s 40th anniversary properly, we have a Reader Offer for you, where you can win a high-tech visual IR thermometer. So please celebrate with us and enjoy!
