Yamaichi Electronics has announced an M12 circular connector series in different variants and codings, including A, B, and D connectors in straight and angled forms compliant with IEC 61076-2-101. The modular system permits the individual configuration of 360° shielding and vibration protection, enabling an optimum price/performance ratio, regardless of customer requirements.
The product series is continually being extended, expanding the options for combination with existing product series such as Y-Con (RJ45) and Y-Circ P (push-pull).
In addition to the A, B, and D coding, there is also an IEC 61076-2-109-compliant X-coded connector currently in the process of approval. This variant will permit the interference-free transmission of CAT6A signals. This underscores the competence of Yamaichi Electronics in the design and production of high-speed connectors.
All connectors are IP68 protected and meet the strictest of quality standards for secure contacting. This is particularly vital for demanding applications in industrial environments.
Matthias Schuster, Product Manager, Y-Circ P product family, Yamaichi Electronics, comments: "Y-Circ M is an expansion of our circular connector series and makes it possible for Yamaichi Electronics to manufacture very cost-effectively converter cable assemblies from M12 to RJ45 so frequently required by industry. This backward integration is the basis for future growth and a guarantee for short delivery times at competitive prices for products made in Germany."
