M12 connectors are circular connectors with a 12mm locking thread used for sensors, actuators, Fieldbus and industrial Ethernet. The M12 family can be found in many applications such as factory automation, measurement and control, communications, food and beverage, transportation, agriculture, robotics and alternative energy.
Several styles of coding exist in M12 connectors. This coding prevents incorrect mating on products. In addition, shielding is available in most coded M12 connectors. For example, X-coded connectors are specifically shielded for 10 Gbit
The M8 is frequently found in sensor and actuator applications, whereas the M12 X coded variant can also be used in Ethernet based systems.
