Reduce cable breakage

TE Connectivity's M12 Railway Cable Connectors for field assembly, designed for railway (EN45545) and automation industry applications, provide a solution that safely and reliably supports communication in harsh environments. Even in extremely rough industrial environments these quality products help provide a safe signal transfer. The M12 Cable Connector, characterized by a reliable 360-degree shielded solution, crimp flange and compact outer dimension, offers a torsion and vibration proof cable strain relief. This reduces cable breakage and makes the system tamper proof. With IP67 rating and compliance to essential rail standards (EN45545), this rail engineered product is fast to assemble in the factory or in the field. To support optimal connectivity between the connector and the cable each combination has been matched. Please check the M12 catalog for released combinations.
