we are going to use a Binder M8 series connector for the lights, which is a electronic sensor.

Why is that? why are we using an electronic sensor and not a normal connection block?

I'm not quite following, I think you're asking why choose a connector that's usually used for electronic sensors, for lighting? (There's nothing electronic or sensing about the M8 series connectors of themselves as far as I know.)

I guess the lighting is something other than 230V a.c.? In which case it's quite normal to choose an 'unusual' type of connector - to reduce the chances of mistakes (connecting either the right light to the wrong supply or vice versa) - I've seen DIN connectors (traditionally used for audio interconnections) used for 12V d.c. supplies to motors! In many ways the more unusual the connector the better in that respect.
