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.
