Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) means that a connector is shielded or shieldable. This is required when it is necessary to protect the signals or data conducted by the connector, as well as to protect external devices, from disturbance due to electromagnetic effects.
The M16 connectors of the 581, 680 and 682 series according to DIN EN 61076-2-106 are available with 2 to 24 contacts with crimp, dip solder, screw clamp, solder and stranded wire connection. The connectors are available as straight and angled cable versions as well as flange versions. Many versions are shieldable. Depending on the number, the contacts are designed for a rated current of 1 A to 7 A.
