binder USA Introduces M15-Sized Power Bayonet Connector

Oct. 2, 2023 - binder USA’s new PBC15 Power Bayonet Connector is designed for power supply and signal linking of devices via a single cable. The connector’s size corresponds to an M15 thread, effectively bridging the gap between M12 and M23 for power supply applications. The PBC15 is also designed for easy wiring and installation with a quick-locking system.
The compact PBC15 is ideal for power supply to 3-phase motors or frequency converters. Its three power pins supply the three live phases of a 3-phase motor with two additional pins for signal transmission, as well as a Protective Earth (PE) contact. Shieldable variants of the PBC15 are well suited to environments with electromagnetic interference (EMI).
With rated values of 63 V and 10 A, the connector’s signal pins can be used, for example, to control brakes or to query operating parameters such as temperatures. Applications include automation technology, machine engineering, and warehousing intralogistics.
“With the PBC15, binder has succeeded in creating a power-dense, easy-to-use connector that is ideally suited for small and medium-sized 3-phase motors,” said Philipp Zuber, product manager at binder. "The high ampacity of three power contacts and two signal pins makes this connector extremely versatile in supplying power to automation components and drives. The quick locking feature and the screw clamp termination allow users to quickly wire and install the PBC15."

Key features of the PBC15:

  • Locking system: M15 quick lock
  • Termination: screw clamp
  • Wire gauge: max. 2,5 mm2
  • Cable outlet: 7 to 14 mm
  • Pin count: 5+PE (3 power, 2 signal)
  • Contact plating: silver
  • Rated voltage: 630 V (power), 63 V (signal)
  • Rated current: 16 A (power), 10 A (signal)
  • Protection degree: IP67
  • DIN EN IEC 61076-2-116
