Amphenol Industrial Products Group offers one of the most durable data link connectors in its class; meeting SAE J2839 and IEC 61076-2-101 specifications. The Max-M12 withstands connector to cable retention forces of 444 N and contact retention forces of 110 N, tested at 100 mating cycles minimum.
Ideal for use in heavy equipment, rail mass transit, mining, and process control as well as in applications that require high speed data transmission, the Max-M12 can easily withstand extremely harsh environments and electrical noise. This field installable and repairable connector is a standalone system that does not need to be overmolded to a cable to meet the harsh environments; however it can be if needed.
The Max-M12 is backward compatible and can be mated with any standard M12 with the same indexing. Designed to endure high vibration and extreme temperatures ranging from -55°C to 125°C, the new connector maintains a current rating of 4 A. All versions of this high speed connector are IP67 or above, making them dust and water proof, resistant to high pressure and high temperature wash downs.
