Murrelektronik’s M12 Industrial Ethernet Connectors

Connection Technology for High Bandwidth Industrial Applications

Murrelektronik's IP65/67 rated industrial M12 connectors are ideal for demanding industrial Ethernet applications. The x-coded M12 connector transfers high volumes of data while the y-coded M12 connector transfers data and power.


High speed vision systems are just one example of how increasing volumes of data are generated in industrial Ethernet applications. This requires higher transfer rates and increases the importance for a standardized communication structure within a company. Murrelektronik’s X-coded M12 cordsets are the solution for error-free, high-speed data transfer at speeds of up to 10 gigabits per second. A metal cross (X-shaped) in the connector safely separates the four data pairs from each other while the internal shielding protects the cable from external interference. The combination of our X-coded M12 connectors with highly resistant PUR cables equals a cordset designed for industrial applications.

  • 10 Gbit/s data transfer rate according to Cat. 6A (ISO/IEC 11801)
  • 360° shielding end to end
  • Soldered shield connection between cable and connector
  • Lengths to 50m

Hybrid Cables – One Cable for Data and Power

Murrelektronik’s Y-coded M12 cordsets transfer data and power in one connector. The metal “Y” in the connector separates the four power transfer contacts from the four signal contacts in the pin arrangement making it possible to transfer up to 100 megabits per second of data while also providing 2 x 6A power. Our Y-coded M12 connectors are combined with PUR cables making them suitable for a wide variety of moving applications.

  • 100 Mbit/s data transfer rate according to Cat. 5e
  • Power transfer up to 2 x 6 A
  • 360° shielding end to end
  • Soldered shield connection between cable and connector
