HARTING har-speed M12 X-Code connectors expand industrial Ethernet deployment.
HARTING has introduced complementary M12 X-Code components –straight and angled PCB receptacles and M12-to-RJ45 panel adaptors as well as an M12 gender changer – in support of its har-speed M12 X-Code connectors. The straight and angled receptacles and adaptors meet the requirements for Cat 6A and Performance Class EA, with maximum transfer rates for 1/10 Gigabits. A mounting bracket also is offered for the M12 X-Code gender changer. The X-code connectors’ mating face shields the connector area and the coding of the mating face, while ensuring fault-free plugging with other 8-pole M12 connectors. lineup features standard and slim design connectors, the latter with a 16.5 mm external diameter. It also offers over-molded variants in different lengths as well as a crimp connector for on-site assembly.
