Based on the modular M8/M12 circular connector system according to IEC 61076-2-101 / 2-104 / 2-109, robust connector solutions for industrial automation can be implemented quickly and reliably. The connectors are suitable for almost all Ethernet and fieldbus specifications and are available in various codes. A-coded circular connectors are used, for example, as sensor connectors or device connectors for digital and analogue signal transmission or for power supply. B-coded connector variants are intended for fieldbus interfaces. D- and X-coded products are designed for Ethernet interfaces. As part of its proven M8/M12 series, Erni now also offers M12 connectors with 12 and 17 pins in the standard design. With these multi-pin M12 variants, the number of required device interfaces can be reduced, for example, if bus, I/O, control, service and safety signals are combined in one connector/cable. Typical applications that benefit from multi-pin M12 connectors include complex sensors, cameras, scanners, encoders, I/O boxes, sensor/actuator multi-pin connectors, etc.
