Franz Binder GmbH & Co. has changed the color of the contact insert from black to green for the M12 D-coded PCB mount receptacles. This makes it easier for users to identify the Ethernet port on the device and avoid damage by forced mating to units with different codings.
This change will be implemented in stages, therefore mixed shipments of black and green colors may occur during this phase. The green design was made with no change in price.
