Industrial Valve Connectors Set New Standards in Performance and Flexibility

Belden has redesigned and extended its industrial connectivity portfolio of molded valve connectors, Type A, in the Hirschmann GDM series.


Wherever valves and sensors need to be provided with power or connected to a data network, these GDM series valve connectors permit high-availability solutions to maximize the productivity of your plant and machinery.

  • Protective circuitry and/or function indicators ensure reliable power supply and data communication
  • Usable anywhere in the world, thanks to their compliance with international standards (e.g. UL 2238)
  • Ingress protection ratings of up to IP69K coupled with high levels of shock and vibration resistance guarantee maximum reliability – even under the most adverse environmental conditions
  • High-grade materials with extensive resistance to numerous chemicals and UV light ensure long service life and reduce the Total Cost of Ownership.
  • Suitable for use in the construction of machinery and plant
  • Can be used on solenoid valves, temperature sensors and many other automation components
  • Suitable for use in numerous other applications that require precise valve control, for example braking systems in rail vehicles and trucks
  • Variants with two or three poles and with or without ground contacts
  • More than 20 different versions of protective circuitry
  • Divers of protection circuits ensure that downstream circuitry is not damaged by excess voltage

  • LED status indicators, also available in combination with circuit protection, facilitate maintenance
  • The housings of these GDM valve connectors are made of black or translucent thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). The cables are made of PVC or polyurethane (PUR)
  • Their rated voltage is in the range 12 to 230 V AC/DC, depending on the protective circuitry, with current ratings between 1 and 10 A
  • The slim design, only 26.7 mm height, makes these valve connectors extremely compact and economical in the use of installation space
  • Non-slip surfaces on both sides ensure safe handling
