M12-B connectors are commonly used in automation technology, ensuring seamless communication and power transmission in industrial settings. M12 B-coded connectors utilize a specific coding system, denoted as the B code, to facilitate reliable and error-free connections. The B-coded M12 connector features a keyway design, preventing mismating and enabling efficient integration within automated systems. With their robust construction and standardized form, M12-B connectors are a durable and versatile solution for various industrial applications where high-speed data transmission and power delivery are required. Their resilience against harsh environmental conditions, makes M12 connectors b-coded significant components in modern automation technology.
M12 circular connectors of the 715/766 series with B-coding have protection class IP67/IP68 and 360° EMC shielding. They are UL-approved and have a freely configurable screw, crimp and cage clamp connection as well as an overmoulded cable of 2m or 5m length as standard. They are available as cable or flange connectors, with screw locking according to DIN EN 61076-2-101.
What is the difference between a-coded and b-coded m12 connector?
The primary difference between A-coded and B-coded M12 connectors lies in the arrangement of their internal pins. A-coded connectors have 4 pins arranged in a circular pattern with a keyway to ensure correct orientation during mating. They are commonly used for sensor and actuator connections in industrial automation where higher data transfer rates are required.
B-coded connectors also have 4 pins but feature a different keyway to prevent mismating with A-coded connectors. These connectors are mainly employed for power and signal transmission applications in industrial settings.
