HARTING M12 Slim Design: Now also in the female version

M12 Slim Design female connector

With immediate effect the new HARTING M12 Slim Design is not only available in the male, but also in the corresponding female version - thereby completing the compact M12 variants in crimp connection technology. Users can also apply this solution successfully in order to achieve higher integration densities.

HARTING has thereby extended the product portfolio for the Gigabit Ethernet application area with a second slim variant that has been significantly reduced both in diameter and in length. The outer diameter has been slimmed down to 16.5 mm, allowing a high integration density to be achieved with appropriate devices such as switches. In addition, the housing is significantly more robust, being able to withstand torques of up to 1.5 Nm. The connectors with x-coding conform to IEC 61076-2-109, and comply with Cat. 6A and Performance Class EA.
