M12 ethernet cables are available in a range of configurations to suit different applications. 

  • They can be male or female, straight or right angled, and have either a one-ended or double-ended design. 
  • The cable itself can also vary in terms of its type and jacket material. For example, you can choose from Cat5e, Cat6, or Cat6a cables, each of which has its own specific features and performance characteristics. 
  • The jacket material can also be PVC or PUR, with the latter offering better resistance to abrasion and chemicals. 
  • High flex moving cables are also available for use in drag chain systems, where the cable needs to be able to withstand frequent movement and flexing.
  • Panel mount M12 ethernet bulkhead connectors could be prewired or soldered by customer

Field Wireable M12 Ethernet Connector

A field wireable M12 Ethernet connector is a type of M12 connector that allows for on-site assembly of an Ethernet cable in the field, some may need specialized tools or equipment. These connectors are designed for use in industrial environments, where the ability to make quick and easy cable connections in the field is important.

  • Field wireable M12 Ethernet connectors typically consist of a male or female connector shell(PA66 or metal), a cable gland, and a set of contacts(screw, solder or crimp termination) that can be terminated onto the individual wires of an Ethernet cable. They are available in various types, including D-coded, X-coded, and A-coded, to support different Ethernet speeds and power levels.
  • To assemble a field wireable M12 Ethernet connector, the individual wires of the Ethernet cable are stripped and inserted into the appropriate contacts, which are then crimped or screwed onto the wires. The cable gland is then tightened onto the connector shell to secure the cable in place and provide strain relief.
  • Field wireable M12 Ethernet connectors are a convenient solution for on-site Ethernet cable assembly, and are commonly used in industrial automation, robotics, and other applications where Ethernet connectivity is required in harsh environments.

M12 Ethernet Bulkhead Connector

The M12 ethernet bulkhead connector could be mounted on a panel or enclosure, creating a waterproof and dustproof seal for the connected devices.

  • Panel mount M12 ethernet connectors can be prewired, meaning that they come with the wires already soldered to the connector. This can be convenient for installations where the connector needs to be quickly and easily plugged into a panel or enclosure. 
  • The M12 ethernet panel mount connectors can also be purchased without prewired connections, allowing the user to customize the wiring as needed.
  • Front mount connectors are mounted on the front panel of an enclosure or device
  • Back mount connectors are mounted on the back of the panel. 
  • Throgh hole M12 PCB mount ethernet connectors are available with either straight or 90 degree angled options. 
  • SMD mount connectors are surface mount connectors that can be soldered directly to a printed circuit board (PCB).

M12 To RJ45 Ethernet Cable

M12 to RJ45 ethernet cables can be made with M12 A-coded 8 pin, M12 D-coded 4 pin, M12 X-coded 8 pin, while used for different industrial ethernet protocols, the wiring definition of same apperance M12 to RJ45 cable can be different.

  • It’s important to use the appropriate M12 connector for the specific protocol and application you are using. Using the wrong connector can result in connectivity issues or even damage to your equipment.
  •  It’s also important to follow the correct wiring guidelines for the specific protocol you are using to ensure that your Ethernet cable functions properly.

 if customer need the RJ45 connector with crews , it’s avaialble .

M12 To RJ45 Ethernet Adapter

An M12 to RJ45 adapter is a device that allows you to connect an Ethernet cable with an RJ45 connector to a device with an M12 connector. 

  • The M12 to RJ45 adapter comes in several different coding configurations, including A-coded (8-pin), D-coded (4-pin), and X-coded (8-pin), and can be male or female. 
  • The RJ45 connector is a standard connector used for Ethernet cables. It is not waterproof, so it is important to install the M12 to RJ45 adapter on the back panel mount of the bulkhead to protect it from the elements. 
  • The RJ45 interface can be straight or angled at 90 degrees, depending on your needs.
