binder USA announced a new two-piece M12 circular connector offers versatility with several special features including: square-flange housing for easy assembly, multi-position, lockable A-coding that supports variable cable installation.

The new connectors simplify secure sensor and actuator connections in applications such as factory automation and robotics.
