The shielded version of the M12 connection system has established itself for a wide range of demanding applications involving Ethernet as well as Profibus and CAN bus – as a consequence, M12 cable types are increasingly diverse. Tailored to the respective application, the Provertha Online Configurator provides a quick and easy way to find your individually configured M12 cable. These can be configured and requested from Provertha. Whether Profibus B-coded, CAN bus A-code, Profinet D-coded, EtherCAT D-coded, Railcat or Railcat crossover – a multitude of applications are covered. Standard versions are available at short notice.
Besides selecting the desired application for each configuration, users are requested to enter the version (configured, overmoulded etc), the connector type (male-female, female-female, male-male) and the cable length.
The company also plans to extend the configurator to include the D-Sub and High-Density D-Sub product ranges, as well as M8 and bus connectors, to better assist customers in selecting the right cabling and connector solution. The company also sees this as a further step in its digitalization efforts.
