Field assembled M12 D-Code plug for Ethernet IP applications

To further fulfill the requirements of device level connectivity in industrial applications and environments, METZ CONNECT now offers the M12 Cat. 5 plug with D-coding and is designed for assembly in the field. The 4 pole D-Coded M12 plug from METZ CONNECT has been developed especially for Industrial Ethernet applications that require a robust and reliable connection.

Offering data transfer rates of up to 100 Mbit/s the 4 pole M12 D-coded Field plug is therefore suited to PROFINET and EtherNet I/P applications. The M12 plug is made from Die Cast zinc and offers a 360° shield around the cable. In addition, there is no requirement for special tools and it can therefore be connected in the field quickly and easily. The M12 D-Code field plug will accept cable OD’s from 5.0 –9.7mm and conductor sizes AWG 26/7 – 22/7 and AWG 24/1 – 22/1. As standard the M12 plug offers a high mechanical and electrical resistance along with an IP67 rating in mated form.

METZ CONNECT offers 2-pair twisted-pair connectors with D-coding as well as 4-pair twisted-pair connectors with X-coding for higher data transfer rate up to 10Gb.
