Metz Connect announces M12 D-Code plug for PROFINET and EtherNet/IP

November 17, 2015 - Metz Connect announces M12 D-Code plug for PROFINET and EtherNet/IP that is designed for assembly in the field.

The 4 pole D-Coded M12 plug has been developed especially for Industrial Ethernet applications that require a robust and reliable connection. Offering data transfer rates of up to 100 Mbit/s the 4 pole M12 D-coded Field plug is therefore ideally suited to PROFINET and EtherNet/IP applications. The M12 plug is made from Die Cast zinc and offers a 360° shield around the cable. In addition, there is no requirement for special tools, and it can therefore be connected in the field quickly and easily. The M12 D-Code field plug will accept cable ODs from 5.0mm –9.7mm and conductor sizes AWG 26/7 – 22/7 and AWG 24/1 – 22/1. As standard the M12 plug offers a high mechanical and electrical resistance along with an IP67 rating in mated form.

METZ CONNECT offers 2-pair twisted-pair connectors with D-coding as well as 4-pair twisted-pair connectors with X-coding for higher data transfer rate up to 10 Gbit.
