Complementary M12 X-Code components, including straight and angled printed-circuit-board (PCB) receptacles, M12-toRJ45 panel adaptors, and M12 gender changer, widen the range of HARTING’s har-speed M12 X-Code connectors. The parts facilitate 6A Gigabit Ethernet installations in machine and plant automation—the receptacles and adaptors meets the requirements for Cat 6A and Performance Class EA with maximum transfer rates for 1/10 Gbits/s. As a result, they will find homes in the eight-wire Ethernet environment, or for transferring signals. A mounting bracket is available for the M12 X-Code gender changer. HARTING’s har-speed X-Code connectors and components enable deployment of an M12-cabling system conforming to IEC/PAS 61076-2-109.
