Number of contacts
This indicates the number of contacts the connector has.
Locking Type
The locking system describes how the pin and socket elements are joined.
  • M12The connectors can be screwed together to secure the connection. M stands for metric thread and the number stands for the external diameter.
Degree of protection
The degrees of protection according to IEC60529 apply to various articles and provide information on protection against the intrusion of water and solids such as dust.
Version
The choice of version allows the definition of certain technical specifications – for example the type of cable outlet or the size.
Connector Type
Connectors are differentiated by installation type: those that are mounted in a device housing (panel mount) and those that are attached to cables.
  • Cable mountingConnectors with cable already moulded or for self-assembly.
Product segment
binder areas of application or type of connector.
  • Automation TechnologyAdvancing digitisation and current manufacturing technologies make possible ever smaller and more high-performance elements in the areas of sensor technology and networking. Here, sensor technology means the detection of physical values and their conversion into electric values. These electric values are converted into a digital signal that can be transmitted by means of bus communication to other bus devices. This will make automated production more modular and flexible in the future, with a preference for standardised connectors like the models M8 and M12. The worldwide availability of the connectors and their adaptation to a broad range of applications have already led to numerous versions, e.g. codings.
Coding
To avoid mismating, the connector elements – the pin and socket – must be brought into form-fitting alignment with one another (coding) before being locked.
  • M12-AThis coding has existed since M12 connectors began their rise to prevalence. Its standardised size in accordance with DIN EN 61076-2-101, with 4, 5, 8, 12 or 17 contacts, allows numerous possible applications, from power supply to data transmission.
Termination
The termination type determines how cables, single wires or PCBs can be joined with the connector.
