Cylindrical, Metal, Threaded Coupling, Harsh Environment, High Speed Signal Connector

Amphenol Industrial Max-M12Amphenol Industrial Operations introduces our ruggedized M12 high speed data connector, the Max-M12. High speed data transmission connection systems have traditionally been implemented into commercial applications with little regard to high vibration, high temperature and overall harsh environment demands. With the increased implementation of these high speed Datalink connection systems into more heavy duty / harsh environment surroundings, the need for a more robust and ruggedized connection system has surfaced.

Based on the IEC 61076-2-101 and SAE J 2839 standards the Max-M12 connection system makes it the perfect solution for the ultra rugged applications that sometimes exist in markets dealing with Heavy Equipment, Rail & Mass Transit, Process Control, Factory Automation, etc.
