Turck M12 True Torque Connectors

TURCK introduces M12 true torque connectors that may be hand-tightened to a predefined torque to avoid over-tightening. Determining whether or not a connector is properly secured is easy with the true torque connector: Once the proper torque has been achieved, the nut rotates freely, indicated by a clear haptic and audible signal. The true torque connector is compatible with all existing M12 products, and does not require a tool for connection. Because the connector cannot be overtightened, the integrity of the mechanics and the o-ring connection is maintained. These connectors are available with 3, 4 or 5 poles, both male …
