Assembled M8 data cables with D-coding


Data transmission with Ethernet and PROFINET  

M8 data cabling

With the new M8 connectors from Phoenix Contact, you can provide the smallest devices with Ethernet and PROFINET.

The symmetrically arranged contacts of the D-coding provide secure data transmission. The installation space is up to 30 percent smaller compared to M12 connectors. Using Power over Ethernet, you can supply field devices with data and power at the same time, which saves even more space. A special 360° shielding ensures high electromagnetic compatibility and a robust, vibration-resistant shield connection.

The assembled M8 connectors with D coding are suitable for 100 Mbps CAT5. They are PoE-capable up to 4 A at a maximum of 60 V. Versions with special material selection are available for railway applications.
