M12 Connector

Product Overview

M12 A-coded 4 pin cable assemblies are designed for applications such as sensors, actuators, robotics & production machinery & equipment, where extreme temperatures and harsh environments are likely to be encountered. These cable assemblies are also ideal for non-industrial applications where compact, robust, and reliable connections are required to withstand rigorous environmental elements. Katlax provides a full solution with shielded and non-shielded cable assembly options that help customers easily connect to advanced industrial networks. The M12 series line meets the IP67 rating for protection against dust and water ingress; they also provide protection against electromagnetic radiation, chemicals and mechanical stress commonly found in industrial environments.
