The METZ CONNECT M12 D-Code plug is field-assembled for PROFINET and Ethernet IP applications.
METZ CONNECT now offers the M12 Category 5 plug with D-coding, which is designed for assembly in the field. The four-pole D-coded M12 plug was developed specifically for Industrial Ethernet applications that require a robust and reliable connection. Offering data transfer rates of up to 100Mbit/s, the four-pole M12 D-coded field plug is ideally suited for PROFINET and Ethernet I/P applications.
The M12 plug is made from die-cast zinc and offers a 360-degree shield around the cable. In addition, there is no need for special tools, so it can be quickly and easily connected in the field. The M12 D-code field plug will accept cable OD’s from 5.0mm –9.7mm and conductor sizes AWG 26/7 – 22/7 and AWG 24/1 – 22/1. The M12 plug offers a high mechanical and electrical resistance along with an IP67 rating in mated form.
METZ CONNECT offers two-pair twisted-pair connectors with D-coding as well as four-pair twisted-pair connectors with X-coding for higher data transfer rates up to 10Gbit.
