TURCK M12 connectors improving data transfer with up to 10 Gbps Ethernet

Turck Australia announces a new range of M12 connectors designed to increase throughput and efficiency in high-end systems and applications with their ability to transfer up to 10 gigabits per second (Gbps) of data.

Compared to traditional M12 connectors that support up to 10/100 megabits per second (Mbps) Ethernet, TURCK’s new M12 X-Code connector offers superior signal strength for high-speed Ethernet data transfers. The new connector’s ability to handle high bandwidth files and minimise transfer time reduces data bottlenecks and improves performance.

The M12 X-Code connector is able to achieve 10 Gbps Ethernet transmission speed with an advanced shielding design paired with Category 7 copper cable. The four data pairs are shielded from one another within the connector, providing increased isolation against crosstalk, or unwanted signal coupling from one balanced twisted pair to another.

According to Laura Schweitz, product manager at TURCK, newer applications for video, camera and vision systems as well as high-speed data acquisition, demand a network cable that can handle more than 10/100 Mbps data transfer. Since Gigabit Ethernet can provide the speed and capacity needed, customers can utilise the TURCK M12 X-Code connector to have a dependable communication solution for their high-speed applications.

Key features of the M12 X-Code connectors also include a robust, compact design; IP67 rating; reliable operation in temperatures ranging from -20°C to +70°C; overmoulded construction eliminating time-consuming hand-wiring and misconfigurations; and suitability for Industrial Ethernet applications requiring high speed and greater bandwidth.
