Ethernet cables from Murrelektronik

Murrelektronik's M12 industrial Ethernet connectors with x-coding enable error-free, high speed data transfer with up to 10 gigabits per second. Transferring data and power with only one cable not only helps to reduce components but ultimately reduces installation headaches too.

Industrial Ethernet Cables

M12 industrial Ethernet connectors

Our industrial Ethernet cables feature metal cross (x-shaped) in the connector safely separates the four data pairs from each other, and the cables are also shielded from external interference. Combining RJ45 connections in the office and x-coded M12 connections in the field makes it possible to establish a consistent gigabit communication across your operations.

Murrelektronik offers the x-coded M12 connectors together with highly-resistant PUR cables, making the perfect option for applications in industrial environments. Murrelektronik isn’t just any manufacturer of cordsets. As a market leader, we make perfect cordsets for a highly diverse range of industries and requirements. Find out more about our connector technology in this short video.

Features and benefits:

  • 10 Gbit/s data transfer rate, according to Cat. 6 A (ISO/IEC 11801).M12 x-coded (IEC 61076-2-109).
  • 360° shielded.
  • Suitable for applications in industrial environments up to IP65/67.

Industrial Ethernet cable applications require continuously higher transfer rates. High speed vision systems that generate a high data volume are a prime example. Standardised communication structures are getting more important. M12 industrial Ethernet connectors, with in-built Murrelektronik quality, offer the optimal solution.

Hybrid industrial Ethernet cables

Transferring data and power in one connector is now possible with Murrelektronik's y-coded M12 cordsets. The metal y-coding separates the four contacts for power transfer from the four signal contacts in the pin arrangement. This makes it possible to transfer up to 100 Mbit/s data while 2×6 A power is available which reduces costs and facilitates the installation. Y-coded M12 connectors, combined with PUR cables suitable for C-tracks, are great for moving applications.

Features and benefits:

  • Transfer data and power with one connector.
  • Data transfer according to Cat. 5e (ISO/IEC 11801, Class D).
  • Power transfer up to 2× 6 A.
  • 360° shielded.
  • Suitable for applications up to IP65/67.

Industrial Ethernet applications are focusing more and more on the installation costs. The concept of transferring both data and power with only one cable helps to reduce components and installation headaches. Industrial M12 connectors with Murrelektronik quality offer the right solution.
