GLEN ROCK, Pa. – Stewart Connector in Glen Rock, Pa., is introducing the M12 A-Code series of high-speed connectors for environments where rugged connectors are necessary to power and communicate with equipment widely found in today’s manufacturing environments.
This series is interface compatible with other industry-standard M12 A-Code connectors. Stewart Connector’s M12 series includes A-Code product variety including male and female panel mount connectors and field terminatable plugs in 4- and 5-pin options.
DeviceNet, CANbus and Fieldbus communication protocols primarily use M12 A-Code connectors with either 4 or 5 pin options. The M12 series (M-metric/12-millimeter circular connector industry standard diameter) with A-coding, or keying, prevents mismatching with other M12 versions.
A-Code M12 connectors most often are used for sensor communication and carrying DC power. The M12 A-Code series offers IDC and soldering termination options for quick and easy installations, replacements, or upgrades.
All of Stewart Connector’s M12 products are IP67 rated when installed, adding to the reliable nature of these connectors in industrial environments.
M12 connectors have been a popular standard in factory automation, sensors, communications, and power applications while expanding into robotic applications and alternative energy solutions. Stewart Connector products are available at Digi-Key, Mouser, and Newark.
