July 11, 2013 – The new Lumberg Automation brand wash-down connectors from Belden are available as single-ended or double-ended actuator/sensor cord sets, and come with an M8 or M12 thread and a hexagonal stainless steel coupling nut. Boasting resistant to aggressive chemicals and cleaning agents, these new connectors have an operating temperature range of -40 to 105C. They can be high-pressure cleaned, and are suited for use in areas where stringent rules of hygiene apply (i.e. in the food and beverage sector, chemical and pharmaceutical industries). Other features include gold-plated crimp contacts, high shock and vibration resistance, and simple installation.
