Due to UL approvals, chain flex requirements and increasing pole numbers, the outer diameters of cables tend to become bigger. M12 connectors meanwhile have been established as an industrial standard for transmitting shielded signals in the field of automation. Binder therefore offers an 8 to 10 mm outlet version in addition to the shielding ring versions for 4 to 6 and 6 to 8 mm cable diameters.
