What is the difference between M12 A code and B code?

M12 Field Wireable 5 Pin Right Angle Connector


– The “A-coding” of M8 and M12 connectors is usually used for signal transmission, but can also be used for low-power applications. Due to its ease of access and availability, A encoding is often the default encoding used.



– “B coding” typically uses 3, 4 or 5 pins in various fieldbus applications.



– “D” and “X” coding are used for Ethernet applications. These connectors provide high-speed data transmission. D-coded connectors are used for 100MB applications, while X-coded connectors are used for higher speeds, such as 10GB applications.



The M12 metric size A-Coding connectors, based on IEC 61076-2-101 standard, it is the most commonly used connector in the factory automation. M12 A-Coding connectors mainly designed for sensor and actuator devices.
