M12 Connectors

M12 connectors are a compact circular connector system typically constructed with an industry standard IEC 61076-2-101 M12 x 1 screw locking interface.

Whilst most applications facilitate this original screw locking interface some brands now also boast bayonet and push-pull locking types for equipment in time-sensitive environments or where a more audible and obvious connection is preferred.

M12 connectors were designed for, and are primarily used in, factory automation applications for actuators, sensors, industrial ethernet, and Fieldbus.

M12 connectors are very versatile and offer options for both cable to panel and cable to cable requirements.

Field-wireable cable connectors offer the user ultimate flexibility with wire termination choices including screw-clamp, Solder, IDC and crimp.

Moulded cable connectors boast a huge variety of options including single or double-ended variants, shielded or unshielded types, and with a wide range of cable jackets including PVC, PUR and TPE.

Standard cable lengths for moulded types tend to be 2m, 5m and 10m, however any length is possible upon request.  

Panel connectors are typically provided with dip-solder PCB contacts for mounting directly to the board or with pre-wired, and often potted, contacts.  

The portfolio of solutions boasts 3, 4, 5, 8, and 12 way layouts with a current carrying capacity of up to 16A per contact and data transmission speeds of up to 10 Gbit per second.

M12 connectors are coded in various ways to avoid mismating and to fulfil customers demands in terms of international standards. The coding is offered by a variety of notches in the contact bearer which determines the type.

Common M12 connector coding includes A, B, D, K, L, S, T and X.

M12 connectors are found in many applications, including agriculture, alternative energy, communications, factory automation, measurement & control, robotics, and transportation.
