Binder has expanded its M12 X-coded product family with new receptacles, cordsets and feed-through connectors. The X-coded products meet CAT6A specifications with data transmission rates up to 10 Gbps. These high-speed connectors are designed for industrial communications and networks, video surveillance and other applications requiring a fast reliable Ethernet connection.

The M12 X-coded products now include male and female receptacles with dip solder angled contacts. This allows more versatility when designing panels and mounting the connector to a board. The product family also has a male to female jumper cordset in addition to the existing male to male cordset. Lastly, a new feed-through connector is now available when needing a pass through the panel solution.

The M12 CAT6A connectors have 8 contacts and conforms to DIN IEC 61076-2-109. Each connection supports up to 10 Gbps and 0.5 Amp rated current and 60 V rating. When fully mated the connection is IP67 rated ensuring protection from liquids and foreign objects.

For a complete solution, the Binder X-coded product family consists of field-attachable connectors, panel-mount receptacles and cordsets including male to RJ45 cables. Custom length cordsets are also available using our field-attached connectors and are fully tested.
