Sometimes millimetres are the deciding factor – smallest M12 cable connector from PROVERTHA

M12 Mini cable gland as most compact solution for Profinet/Ethernet and DeviceNet/CAN


Pforzheim – 25 March 2019 – The new M12 Mini from PROVERTHA is the industry's most compact M12 cable connector for space-saving fieldbus connection. The M12 cable gland has a length of only 44 mm with an outer diameter of 16/14 mm. Nevertheless, the connector offers a large cable clamping range of 4 to 9 mm. The special all-metal housing ensures effective shielding with high EMC. At the same time a solid fully shielded strain relief is provided. The new M12 Mini ensures compact, secure and reliable data/signal transmission. 

The new M12 cable connector is available in the A-5, A-8, B and D codes. The small number of individual parts facilitates assembly. The M12 locking nut with hexagonal combination knurl allows easy tightening of the screw connection to a defined torque. The single wires (wire size AWG 18 - 28) are connected via machined crimp snap-in contacts. The current rating is specified with 4 A (2 A for A-8) and the contact resistance with < 5 m. The degree of protection is IP67 (screw-locked). 

The M12 Mini can be used in the temperature range from -40°C to +85°C and allows more than 250 mating cycles.
