Provertha has launched a high reliability circular connector series for high speed Ethernet.
The certification of the M12-Mini X-Code covers all straight and angled (backplane) 10 Gbit Ethernet variants in the reliable, vibration-proof crimp connection technology. The turned crimp contacts have a significantly higher current carrying capacity for use in special applications. The M12-Mini X-Code in protection class IP67 (screw-locked) is the industry's most compact 10GigE cable connector for space-saving Ethernet or Profinet connection, which can be used in a temperature range from -40°C to +85°C.
With constantly increasing data volumes, X-coding has great significance for future data transmission, especially when sensors generate large amounts of data, for example camera systems. Due to the galvanic isolation of the wire pairs, which is visible in the form of an X, X-coded connectors can transmit high data rates of 10 GBit/s in a robust industrial M12 connector face. The M12-Mini X-Code cable gland has a length of 44 mm with an outer diameter of 16/14 mm. The connector offers a large cable clamping range of 4 to 9 mm and the all-metal housing ensures effective shielding with high EMC. At the same time a solid fully shielded strain relief is provided.
All the M12-Mini X-Code connectors have successfully passed the tests according to DIN EN 61373 "Railway rolling stock equipment – Shock and vibration tests" (category 1, class B, and 2). In addition, they feature the 500h corrosion protection, proven by successfully passing the salt spray test according to EN 60512-11-6. Furthermore, the complete test programme according to the M12 connector standard IEC 61076-2-109 including the test group FP for the electrical transmission parameters was successfully passed in a certified test laboratory.
The M12-Mini X-Code cable connectors are aimed at applications in railway technology as well as harsh industrial environments subject to shock and vibration, e.g. for presses in automotive manufacturing. Due to the increased corrosion protection and the increased shock and vibration resistance, the
