Form C DIN 43650 Connectors for Solenoid Valves
DIN 43650 Form C connectors feature flat blade pins with 8mm or 9.4mm pin spacing between the #1 and #2 pins.
DIN 43650 standards are a set of standards developed by Deutsches Institut für Normung e.V. (DIN), the German Institute for Standardization. The ISO 4400 (the International Organization for Standardization) and EN 175301-803 (
European Standards) standards are also used to describe these connectors. DIN 43650 connectors are primarily used with solenoid valves offering a secure and water resistant method for applying power. The Din 43650 Form C connectors can be found in hydraulics and pneumatics applications as well as marine applications, pressure sensors and switches, optical, limit and proximity switches.
Major Electronix offers a line of Form C DIN solenoid valve connectors that are also called sensor connectors, which are water resistant and offer several different options. Surge suppression, diodes and various lengths of molded cable can be added to Form C DIN connectors from a number of different manufacturers, including Hirschmann, HTP and Omal.
Form C male connectors are panel mounted or made for molding and can be either 2 + ground or 3 + ground. The hardwired Form C connectors all have PG 7 cable entries with 2 + ground or 3 + ground. DIN 43650 Form C connectors with molded cable are 3 + ground or 2 + 2 ground and can come with 2, 3, 5 or 10 meter cable lengths. Circuited versions of the hardwired and molded connectors have options including an LED indicator to confirm the voltage supply and MOV surge suppression or diodes to give overvoltage protection to the source and load. The M12 DIN connectors are fitted to an M12 molded cable plug and come with or without a circuit. If separate accessories are needed, Major Electronix offers a line of Form C gaskets to fit the Hirschmann and HTP Form C DIN connectors.
