Maximised freedom of design

Conec M12x1 two-part angled PCB socket connectors allow flexible connector solutions in assembly and production lines

Modern device connection technology must meet a wide range of requirements. Not only the miniaturization in engine and mechanical engineering be of importance, but also the increased power requirement for the supply of field devices in automation technology. Secure data transmission must be guaranteed even under harsh environmental conditions. CONEC therefore offers M12x1 two-part PCB socket connectors with an O-ring integrated on the insulating body for connection on the device side in these fields of application.
Connector technology
Due to the O-ring, the socket connectors are sealed against moisture from outside, even when unplugged. The two-part circuit board sockets are available with A-coding 4-, 5-, 8- and 12-positions as well as D- coded 4-positions for front and back panel mounting. The L-coded version is available for back panel mounting with 4- and 4+FE positions.

Combined mounting possible

The user can mount the board equipped with the insulating body in various socket geometries. The CONEC sockets are suitable for combined mounting and are ideal for a design where the M12x1 thread of the socket is directly formed. This creates maximum design flexibility.

Secure screen connection

The insulation body fitted with angled contacts is snapped into the circuit board and then processed in a wave solder bath or by selective soldering.
The connector housing is screwed into the device and the circuit board with the contact insert is mounted to it. The spring-loaded shield plate contacts the connector housing and ensures the shield connection.

Sealed plug connection

In the installed state and locked with the counterpart, protection class IP67 is achieved. The connectors are suitable for housing wall thicknesses of 2-3 mm and for PCB thicknesses of 1.6 mm.
The angled connector design makes it possible to position the PCB horizontally in the device, which in turn facilitates the assembly. The innovative M12x1 sockets meet the special requirements of the market because they are two-parts (separation of insulating body with socket housing), modular in design, have an O-ring on insulating body, are suitable for front and back panel mounting (L-coding only back panel mounting), enable fast data transmission (M12x1 D-coding) and offer a high current load capacity up to 16 A (M12x1 L-coding). ds


  • Large tolerance compensation between board and socket
  • Suitable for various socket geometries
  • Low load forces for the circuit board
  • Low contact resistances of the shielding
  • May also be used without CONEC socket housing
