Field assembly high‑speed M12 connector

Yamaichi Electronics has expanded its Y‑Circ M12‑product portfolio with a new field assembly connector for 10‑Gigabit Ethernet applications.
The new connector is suitable for use in typical CAT6Aapplications, e.g. in the communication and power cabling of automation control systems. Due to its slim design compared to similar connectors on the market, it offers a good solution even in confined spaces. The field-assembled variant is used over moulded M12 cable assemblies, for example, when the cable has to be pulled through a cable duct and would be too bulky with the plug. Field assemblies are ideal, even if the exact cable length cannot be defined in advance. If a connector has to be replaced on an already installed assembly, field-assembled connectors can also be used.

Fit for high-speed data transmission

The connector face complies with the standardized M12 X coding according to DIN EN 61076-2-109. Thanks to its die-cast zinc housing, the Y-Circ M CAT.6A field assembly connector provides optimal transmission characteristics even in demanding environments. When plugged in, it reaches protection class of IP67 and is thus optimally protected against adverse environmental influences. Its slim design also proves itself in space-critical installation situations.

Time advantage during installation

The quick and easy assembly offers a time advantage during installation.
The cable simply has to be stripped and the wires of the cable pressed into the colour-coded slots in the back of the two-piece connector. After the protruding wires are cut off, the IDC insulation displacement contacts connect automatically when the two parts are screwed together.
The cable must only be stripped and the cores of the cable pressed into the coloured slots in the rear part of the two-part connector. After the protruding wires have been cut off, the IDC insulation displacement contacts automatically connect when the two parts are screwed together.
Thanks to CAT6A support and IP67 protection, the M12 Y-Circ M circular connectors are suitable for communication and power cabling in automation control systems
