Space-saving and a breeze to fit: AKM motors with innovative flat plug-in connector as a customized solution

The connector solution with the CmX series from ITT Cannon is only around half the height of the standard AKM round connector solution with the same number of components. This offers crucial space savings. The fact that the ITT connectors have been designed for high reliability and a long service life adds to the benefits: They not only come as standard with IP 67 protection against dust and water, and comply with all safety requirements as per DIN EN61984, they are also less sensitive to vibrations and jolts than round connectors. In addition to this, their cable stretch resistance of 200 to 500 N means that they can withstand extreme tensile loads, while the torsional resistance on the cable is also extremely impressive.

The internal connector distribution and assignment varies in this new connector solution, although small individual connectors at the end of the cables ensure that the cables can be laid without any issues. Colour-coded connectors safeguard the solution against polarity reversal.

The CmX connectors are available in various sizes, and the most powerful version can handle a current of up to 40 A. The Cm3 and Cm5 models offer 4 power connections and up to 18 signal connections.
