A broad product range that covers a multitude of Industrial applications containing motor drive technologies from factory automation & robotics to conveyor systems and machine tools. 

CRIMP TERMINATION

The adoption of crimp contacts allows for a consistent high quality connection and reduces the total installation time of a connector by minimizing the number of operations. M23 connectors can be supplied with either machined or stamped contacts and therefore a hand-operated or fully automatic crimping process can be used. Stamped contacts are supplied on a reel and feature an open crimp barrel design, making them ideal for higher volume applications requiring a fully automated process. Machined contacts feature a closed barrel design ideally suited for manual hand tools. By their very nature, open barrel crimp contacts can accommodate a wider range of wire gauges and therefore they can also be used to limit the number of contact types required on applications containing mixed cable sizes. 

360° ELECTROMAGNETIC SHIELDING

Smiths Connectors M23 series, are ideal for motor-drive applications, including machine tools, robots, conveyor systems, handling machines and elevators, etc. They all feature outstanding protection against electromagnetic interference through a full 360° screen connection.
