What are the parameters of the M12 connector

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 ratings ofIP65, IP68 and IP69K, they are ideal for washdown and corrosive environments.

What are the parameters of the M12 connector

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.
