The M8 QUICKON connector is especially designed for use with small cable diameters and wire sizes. The simple two-piece connector is plastic and rugged enough to provide a reliable, gas-tight connection even in dirty or wet environments. The cable gland will accommodate outer diameters ranging from 2.5 - 5 mm and wire sizes 28-20 awg. The M8 connector is available as plug and socket in 3 or 4 pole versions. The color coded terminals correspond to typical sensor wiring which assists in fast assembly. QUICKON offers an easy termination method without the need for soldering, crimping or any special tools. There are three main steps to assemble the QUICKON M8 connector—insert the wires, trim the excess, and tighten the housing nut.
