M12 Cables Ease Data Network Deployments

TE Connectivity extends its modular twisted pair cable assembly offering with M12 cable assemblies. Conforming to EN45545 HL3 with fire and smoke characteristics, the assemblies are suitable for public transportation and other heavy industrial applications. The standard M12-to-M12 cable assemblies employ compact, straight and right-angled connectors, allowing the cable to be used in confined areas. The full metal shell in combination with Secure cable shield termination makes the system EN50155 compliant. Together with fire and smoke compliance, the cable can withstand severe shocks and vibrations according to EN 61373 Cat1 Class B due to its rugged design and machined contacts.


A unique crimped cable strain relief contributes to the high data speed and eliminates conductor breakage. In addition, the crimping system creates a tamper-proof installation, preventing accidental unlocking of the strain relief. High speed category 5e or 7 cable ensures they meet future requirements, allowing the them to be used in later network upgrades.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.


Additionally, the M12 cable assemblies are IP67 sealed and completely tested at the factory to eliminate the possibility of false wiring. They are available in lengths from 1m to 20m in 0. m increments, plus special lengths can be handled on request, and they come pre-assembled. Learn more by visiting TE Connectivity.
