M8 Connectors

M8 connectors are typically used for proximity sensors and reed switches, but thanks to their robust design and compact size they are also an excellent choice for instrumentation applications.

Originally designed for proximity sensors, the M8 connector range is an IP67 rated product with 3 or 4 pole versions within the range. You have the choice of field attachable connectors, moulded connectors with PVC or PUR cable, front or panel mount receptacles and a selection of Jumper cables with various male and female connector options.

All the connectors that we supply are available with straight or angled versions, male (plug) and female (socket) contacts with an easy to fit M8 lock nut for connection security and sealing. The M8 connectors were originally designed for miniature proximity switches are a little unusual as the contact numbering on the 3 pole version is 1, 3 and 4 – not what you would expect – but this matches the switch convention of the normally open contact being present on pin 4 as also seen on M12 connectors.
