Stewart Connector Introduces M12 X-Code Cable Assemblies

Glen Rock, PA, [August 20, 2020] Stewart Connector, a Bel group company, (NASDAQ: BELFA and BELFB) and world-class manufacturer of high-speed connectors used in data communication applications announces the addition of M12 X-Code Cable Assemblies, supporting Ethernet connectivity up to 10 Gbps, making them ideal for both factory and industrial environments.

Stewart Connector’s M12 X-Code Cable Assembly series includes 8-pin male M12 X-Code plugs on both ends of the cable assembly, which allows these cable assemblies to establish an Ethernet connection without the use of RJ45 connectors. The male M12 X-Code connectors found in this series are IP67 rated and are terminated to a shielded cable with a TPE cable jacket, creating a robust assembly suitable for harsh environments. The M12 X-Code Cable Assemblies provide reliable, high performing connections in industrial environments for Modbus, Ethernet, PROFINET, and EtherCAT.

Stewart Connector’s M12 X-Code Cable Assemblies are in stock with Digi-Key, Mouser, and Newark. For detailed product information, visit the product page or download the datasheet.
