With their connectors for assembly, Phoenix Contact provides all connection technologies suitable for your application in an M12 design. Choose between Push-in or QUICKON fast connection technologies or a crimp, pierce or screw connection.

Spring connection: simple and tool-free with Push-in Technology

M12 connectors with Push-in connection enable simple and reliable signal and data cabling.

Insulation displacement connection: contact within seconds using QUICKON

QUICKON provides the fastest connection for M12 connectors. The insulation displacement contact displaces the conductor insulation. It provides a resilient, vibration-resistant, and gas-tight conductor contact.

Crimp connection: compact and can be automated

Crimp connection technology enables fast, automated connection wherever cables have to be assembled in large volumes. The extremely compact connector is suitable for railway applications.

Pierce connection: for high packing densities

Connectors with pierce connection are impressive due to their compact and nevertheless high-position design. The contact is made via a contact pin, which pierces the single wires axially.

Screw connection: the proven classic

The screw connection is one of the classic connection technology solutions. You can assemble a variety of cables and cable qualities universally on site.

MC What to Consider When Choosing a New Motion Control Solution 1 400x275

When it’s time to consider a new motion control solution for your application, rule #1 is “Solve the problem, then worry about the design.”

This is easier said than done, but not if you apply a disciplined, time-tested framework. First, you must clearly understand the problem and the local environment. Failure to do so often results in a suboptimal motion control solution or complete failure.

Secondly, the designer should evaluate the application in light of proven existing motion control solutions. The engineer must also take stock of their skills and the expertise of the team in order to effectively choose the right options and to accurately anticipate development time and resources.

Before choosing any motion control products, the design engineer needs a set of principles to guide his or her selection. Long term experience and common sense has taught us seven important, but often overlooked, principles. 

These key learning have been encapsulated in a simple notion known as the SHAIRED paradigm:

  • •Simplicity of design to reduce problem-causing complexity and cost
  • Homework; calculate the required torque, inertia, duty cycle, etc.
  • Analysis of the application and alternatives must be thorough
  • Integration of the system into existing factory automation
  • Redundancy built in to a system to exceed performance expectations and deal with unexpected changed in load and operating parameters
  • Economical solution for the short and long term.
  • Development time must be accurately estimated

Using the above guidelines during motion control system design, evaluation of alternatives, and final product selection will help increase the odds of application success.
