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.
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.
  • IP20Protects against contact with fingers and against foreign bodies of Ø > 12.5 mm. Does not protect against water.
Version
The choice of version allows the definition of certain technical specifications – for example the type of cable outlet or the size.
  • Connecting cableConnecting cable in various pin and socket versions.
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.
Shielded Option
Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) means that a connector is shielded or shieldable. This is required when it is necessary to protect the signals or data conducted by the connector, as well as to protect external devices, from disturbance due to electromagnetic effects.
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.
  • M12-DThis coding was developed as a 4-contact, shieldable connector and standardised in accordance with DIN EN 61076-2-101 as one of the first for fieldbus wiring – e.g. PROFINET. It is used for data transmission at rates of up to 100 Mbit/s. Data transmission is becoming ever more prevalent and thus increasingly important.
  • M12-XThis coding was specially developed as an 8-contact, shieldable connector for data cabling applications with high data quantities and data transmission rates – e.g. PROFINET. Standardised according to DIN EN 61076-2-109, the connectors feature a comparatively high degree of protection and are used for data transmission at rates of up to 10 Gbit/s. Global data transmission is becoming increasingly prevalent and thus increasingly important.
Termination
The termination type determines how cables, single wires or PCBs can be joined with the connector.

RJ45 connectors - Automation technology

binder’s double-ended RJ45 connectors are designed for reliable Ethernet IP and PROFINET data transmission. The RJ45 connectors come in different cable lengths and with different Industrial ethernet cables such as Ethernet CAT7, CAT6a or Ethernet CAT5e. binder’s RJ45 cable connectors are shielded, achieve protection class IP20 and are available with 4 to 8 contacts. The double-ended ethernet cordsets are also available in different versions such as M8 D-coded to RJ45, M12 to RJ45, M12 D-coded to RJ45 and M12 X-coded to RJ45.
