HARTING introduces M12 female slim design connectors

July 30, 2015 - HARTING introduces M12 female slim design connectors with a 16.5 mm external diameter for high density integration on devices where space is at a premium.

The Slim Design connectors conform to IEC 61076-2-109, and comply with Cat. 6A and Performance Class EA.

These connectors are ideal eight-wire interfaces for carrying data in processes like the optical technologies – cameras and inspection systems – used in monitoring high-speed production lines. HARTING also offers over-molded variants of these connectors in different lengths as well as an extensive range of complementary M12 components, like the M12 har-speed gender changer’s space saving design for the IP65/67 environment. The gender changer permits connection of M12 female/d-coded to female/x-coded for fast Ethernet 100Mbits/s. The eight-pin, har-speed M12 to RJ45 panel adaptor makes new cabling easier for 1/10Gbit Ethernet in machinery, food and beverage processing equipment as well as packaging systems.
