L Type M12 A adapter
The L type M12 adapter could be A code 2pin 3pin 4pin 5pin 6pin 8pin , B code 5pin, D code 4pin, it’s made of PA66 housing with metal locking nut, there is a hole for screw locking to serface of equipments.
T Type M12 Adapter
What’s the difference between the 2 above M12 T adapter? The left have metal locking nut, the right M12 adapter made with plastic locking nut which could be more cost-effective.
The M12 T type adapter have 3 locking holes, have A code 2pin 3pin 4pin 5pin 6pin 8pin and B code 5pin, D code 4pin for option. Normally it’s one male to 2 female, can also be customized by detail requirements.
T type M12 Adatper WIth Cables
The cable type T M12 adapter have one locking hole, normally it’s one male to 2 female, and the cable material could be PUR or PVC, the cable length could be customized. It have following coding type and pin opption:
A code : 2pin 3pin 4pin 5pin 6pin 8pin 12pin 17pin
B code: 5pin
C code: 3pin 4pin 5pin 6pin
D code 5pin
Y Type M12 Adapter
The Y type M12 adapter could be yellow or black color, locking nut could be plastic or metal,normally it’s one male to 2 female, could have coding type and pin option as following:
A code : 2pin 3pin 4pin 5pin 6pin 8pin
B code: 5pin
D code : 4pin
M12 To M8 Adapter
The M12 to M8 adapter is Y type adapter, with one M12 A code 4pin male interface, and two M8 A code 4pin female interface.
M12 To RJ45 Adapter
The M12 to RJ45 adapter is used to the connector M12 to ethernet cables, the M12 ethernet cables can be A code 4pin, A code 8pin or D code 4pin. So the Adapter could be A code 4pin 8pin or D code 4pin, the RJ45 side could be straight or angled.
