M12 Wiremount Connectors

3M's M12 wiremount connector features robust and reliable design, ideal for factory automation and other harsh environments


3M's M12 Wiremount Connector3M's industrial M12 Wiremount connectors are an expansion of 3M’s extensive connector portfolio and are ideal for many different applications. The M12 Wiremount connector’s robust and reliable design makes them ideal for factory automation and other harsh environments. These connectors are IP68-rated and provide EMI protection in compliance with IEC 61076-2-101. They terminate easily to cables ranging from AWG 20 to AWG 24. The solder cup allows a quick and easy termination process, saving time and enabling custom cable assembly lengths.

3M’s M12 Wiremount connectors are currently available in two different codes: A and D. Each code has a different interface that only mates with the same type of code. See the table below for the available connectors and typical applications for each.

The D-code M12 Wiremount connectors are used for Industrial Ethernet connectivity. Major networks, such as PROFINET, EtherCAT, and Ethernet/IP, use 4-wire Cat5 cables to transmit information. Such cables mainly consist of 4 AWG 22 wires to ensure 100 Mbps transmission for 100 m distance.
