Robust and reliable solutions for advanced technology in harsh environments
Manufacturing environments are fast-paced and demanding, providing the need for robust, and reliable, electrical components. The M12 series from Tensility is designed to withstand harsh environments, with features such as ruggedized connectors, shielded cables, and IP67 ratings, providing protection against dust, moisture, vibration, and high temperatures. Reliability at the component level minimizes the risk of communication failure, and repair downtime, improving the overall efficiency of the system.
A stable, and secure, connection between devices is made possible by following industry standards IEC 61076-2-101 (A code) and IEC 61076-2-109 (X code). A code M12 cables are available in 3, 4, 5, 6 & 8 pin options in 180°, or 90°, orientations. The flexibility to choose between different pin configurations, while maintaining the same form factor, is intended to account for different design constraints, whether that be communication protocol, or space.
The X code M12 options are designed to accommodate Ethernet and CAT6a applications, utilizing a shielded twisted-pair 8 conductor wire that minimizes signal distortion. Communication between devices starts with the components, and interconnected systems rely on efficient data exchange between controllers, sensors, and other equipment in real time.
