Innovative Circular Connectors Allow Simple Mounting

Lapp’s Innovative right–angled A3 swivel base connectors are the latest addition to their Epic® LS1 and M23 range of Circular Connectors. With a patented top cover that allows for simple mounting without the need of any tools and its ergonomic and compact design, assembly couldn’t be any easier. 


For use by machine tool, motion drive and robotics manufacturers the Circon LS1 A3 is suitable for power connections and the Circon M23 A3 is for control signals. Both are unique in the market because of their patented swivel base mechanism that integrate a ratchet concept, protected against vibration, which holds the connector in 15° intervals adjustable over a 330° angle. This swivel mechanism is perfectly designed to allow for a clearly defined and constant movement of force, preventing any unintentional rotation when mounted on the device.


The M23 signal connector and LS1 power connectors comply with the requirements of DIN EN 61984, rated to IP68 and approved to UL, CSA and VDE standards. Both are offered in coupler, connector, and panel mount configurations that satisfy simple cable-to-cable and cable-to-machine requirements. They are ideal for control signal transmission and servo drive encoder feedback applications in the plastics, printing, analytical instrument, robotic and machine tool industries and any other industrial or commercial application where a compact, rugged connector is required.


M23 Connectors are available in seven housing arrangements that can accommodate three different keying positions. Inserts are offered in a choice of seven contact configurations for mounting male or female, crimp or solder contacts. Common to all arrangements are a rugged nickel-plated zinc body, plastic contact insulation body and gold plated electrical contacts. Cable mounted arrangements also include an integral EMC shield ring and a built in Skintop® gland.


They are offered with insert configurations for 6, 7, 8+1, 9, 12, 16, and 17 crimp or solder contacts in either a clockwise or counter-clockwise orientation. Used in combination, they connect one cable with another (cable coupler) or a cable to fixed wiring in a control enclosure or on a machine, instrument or motor.


A colour coding system provides positive identification and visual differentiation in multiple connector installations whilst colour coded keying rings ensure correct mating selection in applications where several connectors are mounted in the same location.


LS1 power connectors are available in five housing arrangements and two contact configurations, 5+PE and 3+PE+4. Common to all arrangements are a rugged nickel-plated zinc body, plastic contact insulation body and gold plated electrical contacts. Like the M23 connectors, cable mounted arrangements also include an integral EMC shield ring and the highly regarded Skintop® gland.


For multiple connector installations, colour marking is used to provide positive identification and visual differentiation.
