General Description

The BRKQ series of breakout boards provides a clean and simple solution for terminating wires at a connector through a panel or enclosure wall. These boards are great for making machine network connections, connecting external sensors, connecting human interface devices, and neatly transitioning cabling through an enclosure.

This board has an 8-pin, A-coded M12 connector that brings all eight lines out to screw terminals. It is available with either a male or female connector. A breakout board is sometimes referred to as a "transition module", "terminal board", "terminal block", "breakout box", "breakout adapter", "terminator", or "interface module".

Features

Strain Relief Feature
