M12 industrial connectors for high-speed Cat.6A

Paul Boughton

Harting says its new har-speed M12 connectors are the first M12 connectors to meet the demanding requirements for high-speed transmission in Cat.6A cabling systems. These connectors are designed for applications in machine and plant engineering where the requirements for high-speed, secure data transmission necessitate a higher level of performance than is available from Cat.5 cabling.

The design of the har-speed M12 connectors is based on the recently agreed PAS 61076-2-10x standard that defines a uniform mating face for eight-pole M12 connectors. In this design, the mating face performs two tasks: shielding in the connector area (using shielded wire pairs) and the coding of the mating face to ensure fail-safe plugging with other eight-pole M12 connectors.

Harting's new har-speed M12 connector range includes overmoulded variants in different lengths and a crimp connector for on-site assembly.
