US-based Mencom has announced new front locking nut technology for its M12 connectors. These front mount receptacles with front lock nut are designed for thread mount applications that need specific keyway orientations due to the space constraint or any other unexpected engineering situations. Mencom’s new front lock nut receptacles allow the keyway to be freely rotated to any orientation required by simply adjusting the connector and the front lock nut. When using traditional front thread mount receptacles, you have no control which direction the keyway ends up after the thread is fully engaged. This new technology can eliminate that issue.
Mencom’s front lock nut receptacles are UL listed and rated IP67 to provide reliable connectivity in harsh environments. These front locking receptacles are available in multiple pole configurations including 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 and 12 pole. The mounting thread options are available in both PG9 and M16.
