Field-mountable M12 connector


Field-mountable M12 connector

The Yamaichi Electronics Y-Circ M12 product portfolio has been expanded with a new field-mountable connector for 10 Gigabit Ethernet applications.

The new connector is suitable for use in typical CAT.6A applications, e.g. in the communication cabling of automation control systems. The field-assembled variant can be used over moulded M12 cable assemblies if e. g. the cable has to be pulled through a cable duct and would be too bulky with the plug. Field assemblies are also ideal when the exact cable length can not be defined in advance.

The connector face complies with the standardized M12 X coding according to DIN EN 61076-2-109. Thanks to its die-cast zinc housing, the Y-Circ M CAT.6A Field Assembly connector provides optimal transmission characteristics even in demanding environments. When plugged in, it reaches protection class of IP67 and is thus protected against adverse environmental influences.

The quick and easy assembly offers a time advantage during installation. The cable simply has to be stripped and the wires of the cable pressed into the colour-coded slots in the back of the two-piece connector. After the protruding wires are cut off, the IDC insulation displacement contacts connect automatically when the two parts are screwed together.
