New M12 Connectors for Industrial Ethernet Applications

X and Y-Coded

High-speed vision systems are just one example of how industrial Ethernet applications are generating increasing data volumes. As a result, higher transfer rates are needed along with a standardized communication structure. Murrelektronik's IP67 rated industrial M12 connectors are ideal for use in Industrial Ethernet applications like these. The X-coded M12 connector transfers large quantities of data while the Y-coded M12 connector is able to transfer both data and power.

Murrelektronik's X-coded M12 cordsets are the solution for error-free, high-speed data transfer at speeds of up to 10 gigabits per second. A metal cross (X-shaped) in the connector safely separates the four data pairs from each other while the internal shielding protects the cable from external interference. The combination of our X-coded M12 connectors with highly resistant PUR cables equals a cordset designed for industrial applications. Features include:

•    10 Gbit/s data transfer rate according to Cat. 6A (ISO/IEC 11801)
•    360° shielding end to end
•    Soldered shield connection between cable and connector
•    IP65/67 rating

Hybrid Cables - Parallel Transfer of Data and Power
Murrelektronik's Y-coded M12 cordsets transfer data and power in one connector. The metal “Y” in the connector separates the four power transfer contacts from the four signal contacts in the pin arrangement making it possible to transfer up to 100 megabits per second of data while also providing 2 x 6A power. Our Y-coded M12 connectors are combined with PUR cables making them suitable for a wide variety of moving applications. Features include:

•    100 Mbit/s data transfer rate according to Cat. 5e (ISO/IEC 11801, Class D)
•    Power Transfer: up to 2 x 6A
•    360° shielding end to end
•    Soldered shield connection between cable and connector
•    IP65/67 rating
