M5 Cable Assembly

M5 cable assembly is a cable using an M5 connector.

The M5 connector is one of the smallest connectors in factory automation and is designed for 5MM connection diameter sensors in factory automation.  In recent years, industrial measurement cameras, electric bicycle signal transmission, and other fields have been widely used.  

The M5 connector has an anti-vibration, anti-rotation design, stable and reliable connection, and can be installed on equipment with limited space.

An Overview of M5 Cable Assembly

Internet connectivity has become a need among us. Almost every activity and practice we’re engaging in demands an internet connection. Some people opt for WI-FI connectivity, while most are going for home connectivity using a fast and reliable Ethernet connection. The M5 connector system is among the most popular, providing a full solution to IO modules and M5 cable assemblies.

M5 cable assemblies have two or three conductors round biocompatible cable comprising a spiral shield. The diameters of the cable’s jacket are flexible and slim, measuring 2.6 or 2.8 mm. This makes the M5 cable assembly resistant to environmental factors ranging from abrasion, grinding, and scratching. M5 cables assemblies have PVC or PUR jackets.

PVC M5 Cable Assembly Applications

PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) is a product that forms the M5 cables assembly. PVC easily softens by heating, known for its longevity and durability. If exposed to heat, it can withstand, or its heat resistance ability ranges between -40 and 1050C. Additionally, it can serve you for a long period, i.e., 25-30 years. PVC on the M5 cables is efficient in providing a strong shield and can prevent foreign materials from damaging the cable.

PVC M5 Cable Assembly Advantages

PVC M5 cable assembly is known to enable people to use the M5 cables even in harsh conditions. These situations include extreme cold, heat, exposure to chemicals, etc. Therefore, the cable takes long before they are worn out or damaged. Other advantages are;

  • PVC M5 cable assemblies are durable as they can serve you for 25 to 30 years.
  • They can withstand the effects of different chemicals, weathering, corrosion, and abrasion.
  • They are proven to be good or electricity proof if accidentally subjected to electricity.
PUR M5 Cable Assembly Applications

PUR is an abbreviation of Polyurethane, a product used to make cable assemblies. PUR M5 cable assemblies are halogen-free, have an increased chemical and mechanical resistance, and can withstand flames. This makes an M5 cable assembly effective in harsh environments. Polyurethane is rubber-like. This makes the M5 cables to be much more flexible compared to PVC. It’s bend-resistant, thus considered to make robust M5 cable assemblies. They are notch-resistant, have low-temperature flexibility, and resist abrasion.

PUR M5 Cable Assembly Advantages

A PUR M5 cable assembly has various advantages. Like PVC, PUR cables can be efficient in harsh conditions, which can cause great harm to the cable and cause connection and data loss.

  • It resists most chemicals and solvents.
  • It has long-lasting flexibility and elasticity.
  • Has an outstandingly low and high-temperature performance.
  • It serves to be a great waterproof jacket for M5 cables.
