A broad product range that covers a multitude of Industrial applications containing motor drive technologies from factory automation & robotics to conveyor systems and machine tools.


The adoption of crimp contacts allows for a consistent high quality connection and reduces the total installation time of a connector by minimizing the number of operations. M23 connectors can be supplied with either machined or stamped contacts and therefore a hand-operated or fully automatic crimping process can be used. Stamped contacts are supplied on a reel and feature an open crimp barrel design, making them ideal for higher volume applications requiring a fully automated process. Machined contacts feature a closed barrel design ideally suited for manual hand tools. By their very nature, open barrel crimp contacts can accommodate a wider range of wire gauges and therefore they can also be used to limit the number of contact types required on applications containing mixed cable sizes.


Smiths Connectors M23 series, are ideal for motor-drive applications, including machine tools, robots, conveyor systems, handling machines and elevators, etc. They all feature outstanding protection against electromagnetic interference through a full 360° screen connection.
