Highest data rates

STX M12x1

Whether for baggage inspection at airports, passenger information systems (PIS) or automation systems in process monitoring, the STX M12×1 IP67 connector series is the ideal solution wherever continous cabling of industrial communication networks with the transmission of maximum data rates is required.

 

An important part of the STX M12×1 connector series are the bulkhead sockets in Cat.6A. They are available as THR or SMD versions. Likewise, the bulkhead sockets are available with housings for front or back mounting and feature versatile mounting possibilities.

 

 

The basic structure of the Telegärtner connector with X-coding corresponds to the M12 system in worldwide use that has found its way into applications in many different branches with extreme conditions thanks to its compact design and industrial compatibility.

 

Thanks to an intelligent wire management and a simple screw connection system, the individual components of the STX M12×1 cable plug can be assembled quickly and easily on site completely without the use of special tools.

From practice

igus® chainflex Profinet and Telegärtner M12

  • Fail-safe system cabling
  • Reliable automation of production and logistics
  • stable electrical readings, even with constant movement
  • Optimally compatible, high-quality components

 

The fully automated storage system of a large German pharmaceutical mail-order company kept failing. This resulted in huge costs due to:

  • Time-consuming repairs
  • Additional work
  • Delivery delays
  • Customer complaints

 

The analysis by the igus® and Telegärtner test laboratories revealed:

  • The installed cables could not cope with the mechanical stresses and were quick to fail.
  • The insulation piercing terminals of the existing plugs were not optimised for the large wire diameter, which resulted in contact problems.

Reliability and durability are essential for critical applications within companies. And they are often the number one priority for system builders and users.

The prescription for safeguarding against failure for the pharmaceutical wholesale trade: Optimally compatible, high-quality components, such as the high-performance and linkable chainflex cables from igus®, in combination with the D-coded M12 connectors from Telegärtner.

 

M12-connector

  • Optimal design. Sufficient assembly space protects against short circuits
  • The IDC insulation piercing terminals are not only designed for one- and seven-wire conductors, as is customary, but also for fine-wire 19-strand conductors
  • Universal wire manager for wire diameters of 0.9 to 1.6 millimetres to ensure the safe connection of a wide variety of wire and cable types

Profinet cable

  • Guaranteed stable electrical readings, even with constant movement
  • Minimum bending radius of 7.5 x diameter (d) of the e-chain
  • The pressure-extruded inner sheath ensures maximum dynamic range
  • Extremely bend-resistant braided shield with around 90 % optical coverage
