The reduced footprint 713 series M12 male sockets allows fastening from the back side of a panel and reduces the required surface area for mounting. The design features an M12 rear thread allowing the connector to be mounted to a panel having a thickness of up to 3.0 mm. Connectors are fixed from the rear of the panel with a hexagonal nut. The reduced footprint design with a-coding is offered in 4-, 5-, and 8-pin versions. A b-coded version is available with 4-pins. Solder-cup contacts allow wires of any length to be terminated.
