A M12 Connector refers to a circular connectors with a 12mm locking thread that is specifically designed for flushing and corrosive environments. M12 connectors can not only be used in factory automation applications of actuators, sensors, industrial Ethernet and fieldbus, but also be used in many other applications such as agriculture, alternative energy, communications, factory automation, measurement and control, robotics and transportation.
And they can be equipped with 3, 4, 5, 8, or 12pins according to the speical needs and application requirements of the customers. For example, 3pins and 4pins are used in sensors and power applications; 4pins and 8pins are used in PROFINET and Ethernet; 4pins and 5pins are used in fieldbus, CAN-bus and DeviceNet; while 12pins are used dor signal requirements. The M12 connector system QH Industrial provided offers a complete solution including connectors, IO modules, and cable assemblies.
