Cordsets
Cordsets
Electrical cables and cords are assemblies of one or more wires bundled together, used to connect two or more devices and transfer electrical signals or power between them.

Cables are used in a wide variety of applications, and most are tailored for a specific purpose. Cordsets include both the cable and the electrical connectors attached at each end. For power cords and extension cords, one end has a male connector to connect to a power source, and a female connector that attaches to the equipment

Other cordsets include Ethernet cords with matching modular connectors at each end, and computer and interface cables with single-purpose connectors like VGA or PIC that transfer specific signals. Accessories include adapters, junction blocks, extension reels and field wiring kits.

Micro-DC Series Image
The Micro-DC (MDC) series, also known as Micro-change or M12, is one of the most widely used industrial quick disconnects in the industrial market. Despite the name, these euro-style connectors can be used in either AC or DC applications. They are commonly used in factory automation for items such as sensors, actuators, motors, switches, safety light curtains, mats, and interlock switches to name a few. The MDC series has a single keyway which is known as A-coded. The commonly used industry term “M12” is in reference to the coupling thread used to connect the MDC cables to the mating receptacles. The MDC product is offered in 2–8 and 12 pole configurations with a variety of outer jacket materials, and other options. The euro color code (without a ground wire) and the single keyway (A-Coded) distinguish the MDC from other connectors that are similar in size and function.
MIN Size I Series Image
The MIN-Series is so named because they are generally referred to in the industry as MINI-Change, 7/8” connectors, or Mini connectors. The MIN series can be used for transmission of signal and/or power. The MIN-Series is a popular connector choice for machine safety components, lighting, Bus Networks, robots, and numerous other applications. Our MIN-Series is available in 2~14 and 19 pole versions, divided into 4 different sizes.
SIZE I connectors include 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 14 pole versions. All of the Size I connectors are based on a 1” hex for the receptacles and utilize a 7/8” UN mating thread.
SIZE II connectors include a larger 6 pole, along with 7 & 8 pole versions. The Size II connectors are based on a 1.125” hex for the receptacles and utilize a 1” UN mating thread.
SIZE III connectors include 9, 10, 12 & 19 pole versions. The Size III connectors are based on a 1.25” hex for the receptacles and utilize a 1 1/8” UN mating thread.
MIN Power connectors include 3, 4 & 7 pole versions. The MINH 3, 4 pole connectors are based on a 7/8”-16 mating thread & 1” hex for the receptacles and utilize a 7/8”-16 mating thread & 1” coupling nut for the cordsets. The MINH 7 pole connectors are based on a 1”-16 mating thread & 1.13” hex for the receptacles and utilize a 1”-16 mating thread & 1.1” coupling nut for the cordsets. The PMIN 3, 4 pole connectors are based on a 1 3/8-16” mating thread & 1.5” hex for the receptacles and utilize a 1 3/8-16” mating thread & 1.5” coupling nut for the cordsets.
NAN Series Image
The M8 (NAN-series) is often referred to as a “pico” or “nano” connector. The small size makes it the perfect choice when space is limited. The M8 is commonly used with many of the miniature proximity, hall-effect and photo-electric sensors. The NAN series is available in 2 different versions; snap-on (available in 3, 4 and 6 pole) and thread-on (available in 3 and 4 pole). Male connectors in this series can be used to mate with both the snap-on and threaded female connectors.The male has threads and the small snap ring. Both snap-on and thread-on versions have the same water tight specifications (IP67) as well as the same voltage and amperage rating. It is simply customer preference as to which one suits their needs.
Snap-On Version
A snap-on connector is simply pushed onto the mating part and an audible snap can be heard as they lock together.
Threaded Version
The thread-on is similar to the MIN-Series and Micro series in that there is a threaded coupling nut which is tightened when mating.
M12 Ethernet Series Image
Industrial network systems allow for real-time distributed control of many connection points from a single controller. These “network bus” systems reduce the total amount of cable required and can simplify the overall design. Mencom offers a broad range of industrial network connectivity products to streamline your installation. Using Ethernet in industrial applications is becoming more prevalent. This has increased the need for Ethernet product that is built to handle harsh environments. Mencom has addressed this need with a series of rugged Ethernet products. Our E45V3 series connectors allow for an IP67 rating while using standard RJ45 connectors. Mencom offers M12 threaded connectors. We refer to this series with a MDE45 prefix. Our MDE45 series utilizes M12 4 wire (D-Coded) connectors with 2 pair Cat 5e cables or M12 8 wire (A-Coded) connectors with 4 pair Cat 5e cable. The MDE45 is specifically used in Industrial Ethernet applications, and has teal cable using twisted pairs of wires inside. This connector has a unique keyway that is known as D-coded.
While most industrial electrical connectors are used in a wide variety of applications, the “solenoid valve connector” is primarily used on solenoid valves. Over the years as solenoid valves have changed and reduced in size, the solenoid valve connectors have changed as well. Designed to conform to EN175301-803 (formerly DIN 43650), or to “De Facto” industry standards, Mencom solenoid valve connectors are available in 5 different interfaces (Form A, Form B, Form C as well as Industry Standard Form B and Industry Standard Form C).
Mencom’s standard valve connector offers a polyamide body with thermoplastic gasket integrally molded into the face of the mold connectors. Molded versions utilize a PVC jacket with 18 AWG conductors, while the field wireables are available in PG9, PG11, and ½” NPT threaded openings. Valve connectors with circuitry and suppression aid in diagnostics and protection of equipment. Several circuitry and suppression options are available. Solenoid valve connectors all carry an IP65 Rating.

Micro-AC Series Image
This Micro-AC (MAC) series of connectors provides another option for a compact, reliable, quick disconnect solution. Although similar in size to the Micro-DC (MDC) series, the differing keyways, pin locations, coupling thread, and color code make this connector suitable for safe side by side usage with the MDC product, or stand-alone usage. The MAC products, like the MDC products, can be used in both AC and DC applications. The MAC includes a first make last break ground pin along with an industry standard Green/Yellow ground wire. The color code is also typical for an AC wiring schematic. The dual keyway (C-coded), and the 1/2”- 20 mating thread are standard for the MAC series.
