Camarillo, CA - Binder-USA is pleased to announce the addition of 8-pin X-coded connectors to the M12 product family. With the X-coding features it is now possible to transmit up to 10 Gbps for industrial applications. The high bandwidth is guaranteed by isolating the four pairs from one another with an X shaped shield.

The M12 X-coding conforms to IEC 61076-2-109 to ensure connector compatibility through-out the world and between different manufacturers. This coding is also specified for broadband transmission by various Ethernet user organizations such as Profinet.

Overmolded male M12 double-ended cordsets and male M12 to male RJ45 CAT6A cordsets are currently available. All cordsets are available in 2, 5 and 10 meter lengths. A field-attachable connector is offered with IDC (insulation displacement connection) termination for easy assembly to a custom cable. Cable diameters can range from 5.5 to 9 mm and accept wires between 27 and 22 AWG. When fully mated the X-coded connectors hold an IP67 rating while the RJ45 connection holds an IP20 rating. Various female panel-mount connectors are available for a complete connecting solution.
