HYPM23 Browse Inventory

High-reliability M23 signal and power connectors for motor drive applications. For the installation, crimp contacts are used which guarantee high quality of connection, reducing the installation costs at the same time.


Smiths Interconnect M23 circular connectors are equipped with a robust contact technology for use in harsh environemnts. There are two different hyperboloid contact types available: machined and stamped. These two types of contacts have different characteristics in terms of how the termination is made.

MACHINED CONTACTS: With this popular type of contact, the suitable contact size is matched to the wire gauge of the cable.

STAMPED CONTACTS: The crimping sleeve allows a wider range of wire gauges to be crimped. Furthermore, the insertion and extraction force is usually lower by using stamped round pins and HCSTM sockets. Stamped contacts are supplied on reels for use with automatic feed crimping tools.

HYPERTAC HYPERBOLOID CONTACT: Superior performing hyperboloid contact technology designed for use in harsh and demanding environments where high reliability and safety are critical. The inherent electrical and mechanical characteristics of the Hypertac Hyperboloid contact ensures unrivalled performance in terms of reliability, number of mating cycles, low contact force and minimal contact resistance. These performance characteristics provide a real commercial benefit in terms of the total installed cost of ownership.
