Dynamic applications require components that allow for free movement.  Standard dome cable glands are great for securely holding wires in place, but if they are used in a non-static application they could cause kinking and chaffing to occur and cause damage to the wire.  To protect your wires and minimize repairs in industries such as robotics, automation, and alternative energy, we recommend our flex tail fittings for dynamic applications.

Our flex tail fittings feature a spiral flex that allow free range of movement while still holding the cables securely in place.  Options are available in three different thread types including PG, NPT, and Metric.  You can get these fittings in either black or gray nylon, nickel plated brass, or chemical resistant PVDF for clean room applications.  We also offer the flex cable glands in a 90 Degree Snap Elbow Flex fitting for cramped environments.   If you have any questions regarding our Flex cable glands, click here to be taken to our website or call one of our trained technical sales staff today.

Circular connectors have become the “go to” solution for automation systems because of their benefits over hardwired systems. Circular connectors are easy to use, compact in size, extremely adaptable, and rugged enough for outdoor use.  One of the most popular circular connectors that we have to offer is our robust M23 connectors.  Our M23s are highly customizable and available with both power and signal inserts.

We offer three different contact options including crimp, solder, and dip solder.  The possible pin-outs for the M23 power are 6, 8, 9, and 10 poles while the signal pin-outs include 6, 7, 9, 12, 16, 17, and 19 poles.  The M23 is a0vailable in a variety of housings including straight connectors, right angle connectors, and panel mounts. In addition to the standard screw connection, the M23 is also available with the TWILOCK or TWILOCK-S quick connect system.

M23s are suitable for a variety of applications including motors, encoders, motion controls, robotics, and conveyors.  The connector can be used in temperatures ranging from -40 °F to 257 °F allowing it to be used in a multitude of demanding environments.  We also offer a stainless steel housing for the M23 allowing it to be used in hygienic applications as well as outdoors.

Sealcon has two different options for the cable material for both our M8 and M12 cordsets.  The standard material of our wire coating is a PVC coating.  The PVC coating is a more cost effective solution which is ideal for operations requiring less movement and bending of the cable.  In addition to the PVC coating we also have a PUR cable.  Our PUR coating is more flexible than the PVC coating and is better suited for dynamic capabilities.  This makes the PUR cable the ideal choice for industries that benefit from increased flexibility such as robotics.  Contact us today to learn which cable material is best suited for your applications.
