Field Assembled M12 D-Code plug for PROFINET and Ethernet IP applications


To further fulfill the requirements of device level connectivity in industrial applications and environments, METZ CONNECT now offers the M12 Cat. 5 plug with D-coding and is designed for assembly in the field. The 4 pole D-Coded M12 plug from METZ CONNECT has been developed especially for Industrial Ethernet applications that require a robust and reliable connection. 

Offering data transfer rates of up to 100 Mbit/s the 4 pole M12 D-coded Field plug is therefore ideally suited to PROFINET and EtherNet I/P applications. The M12 plug is made from Die Cast zinc and offers a 360° shield around the cable. In addition, there is no requirement for special tools, and it can therefore be connected in the field quickly and easily. The M12 D-Code field plug will accept cable OD’s from 5.0mm –9.7mm and conductor sizes AWG 26/7 – 22/7 and AWG 24/1 – 22/1. As standard the M12 plug offers a high mechanical and electrical resistance along with an IP67 rating in mated form.  

METZ CONNECT offers 2-pair twisted-pair connectors with D-coding as well as 4-pair twisted-pair connectors with X-coding for higher data transfer rate up to 10 Gbit. To learn more about our M12 connector and cable assembly range, please visit

METZ CONNECT is looking forward to presenting the new M12 D-Coded Field plug at the SPS/IPC/DRIVES 2015 exhibition in Nuremberg on Stand 305 – Hall 9.
