M12 connectors are circular connectors with a 12-mm locking thread used for sensors, actuators, Fieldbus and industrial Ethernet, primarily in factory automation applications. Often with rating ofIP65, IP68 and IP69K, they are ideal for washdown and corrosive environments.
They are available with 3, 4, 5, 8 and 12 pins. While higher pin counts are not planned, other locking styles such as bayonet and push-pull are continuously under development. The M12 family can be found in many applications such as factory automation, measurement and control, communications, food and beverage, transportation, agriculture, robotics and alternative energy.
When it comes to specific applications, users must select the right pin count. For sensors and power applications, 3 and 4 pins are required. Profinet and Ethernet use 4 and 8 pin counts. And Fieldbus, CANbus and DeviceNet primarily use 4 and 5 pin counts. Finally, specify 12 pins for signal requirements.M12 connector is currently used in outdoor light boxes, construction machinery, steel production equipment, electric equipment, mine machinery, shipping machinery, automotive equipment, production of automatic equipment, temperature transmitters, hydraulic machine, sensors, solenoid valves, instrumentation, and stress Transmitter, etc.
The design environment of the M12 connector product is very demanding, product performance and test standards are certified by international quality testing standards. At the same time, the M12 connector is used to connect the field sensor to the brake.
