Wago’s 756 series M12 socket Ethernet adapter streamlines the integration of machine-mount IP67 components with IP20 controls. Providing tool-free terminations, the adapters feature a traditional cable-based RJ45 Ethernet socket that routes data through a screw-locking M12 connector. A panel-mount design and availability in right-angle (756-9503) and straight (756-9504) variants eases integration into existing systems. The 756 series adapters provide Class D (up to 100 MHz) transmission performance, and to support data transmission to/from components in harsh environments they are 360° shielded to Category 5 standards. Network-based configuration replaces proprietary handheld configuration units to streamline machine-building and control applications for industries such as packaging, food/beverage and pharmaceutical.
