M12 Connector Coding Pinout Wiring Color Code and Categories Introduction

September 14 ,2019 M12 Connector Coding, M12 Connector Pinout, M12 Cable Wiring Color Code FLECONN will introduce m12 connector and m12 cable coding, pinout, wiring color code and installation types for wide readers in designing automation equipment's power and signal connection systems.

If you want to get a safe, reliable, sealed and waterproof power and signal connection between your actuators, sensors and industrial devices, robots, automation equipment, you’d better choose IP67 circular waterproof m12 connectors and cable assemblies.

 

How to choose suitable m12 connectors and cable assemblies for your applications?
How to identify m12 circular connector coding?
How to connect different types of color of core wire to correct pins / positions of m12 male or female connectors? 
How to choose a suitable m12 connector and cable assembly to be installed into your devices?

In order to help wide readers solve the upper questions and design and assemble power and signal connection systems for concrete industry applications,  I’ll introduce them by following different subjects:


I. M12 Connector Coding

There are following male and female A-Coded, B-coded, C-coded, D-coded, X-coded, S-coded, T-coded, L-coded, P-coded m12 connectors.

You may identify these coding types of m12 series by below contact layout diagrams:

 Application: L-coded M12 Power Connector with max 16A current comes true the change from big Power vs small Size alternative to both big Power and small Size. It can be used in the PROFINET application on the condition that needing big power supply and small space. Using L-code M12 connectors means no more difficult choices when designing smaller, more powerful PROFINET system components.
