  • Standardized in accordance with IEC 61076-2-111; approval in accordance with UL 2237

The right solution for every application

AC applications

AC power connection  

Three-phase motor power connection

The M12 POWER S-, K-, and M-codings are designed for AC applications such as the power connection of a three-phase motor. The M-coding also supplies 5- and 6-pos. consumers with up to 8 A and 690 V.

DC applications

DC power connection  

Power supply for distributed I/O modules

The T- and L-codings are used for low-voltage DC applications, such as supplying power to distributed I/O modules or DC motors. The 4-pos. L-coding is available with an additional functional ground contact as an option. Up to 16 A can be transmitted at a voltage of 63 V.

Reliable shielding and grounding

Reliable shield connection  

Advanced Shielding Technology

Use a totally protected shield and PE connection in your power transmission. Advanced Shielding Technology from Phoenix Contact optimizes the current design of M12 connectors. Liquid metal that completely encloses the cable shielding during the manufacturing process enables the reliable and safe operation of your systems. The material-bonding 360° shielding not only provides improved EMC protection, but also boosts performance. The liquid metal also establishes the connection between the PE contact and the metal-conductive M12 knurl. Advanced Shielding Technology thus ensures greater safety and reduces the risk of fire in the event of a short circuit.

Connectors with Push-Lock connection

Connectors with Push-Lock connection

For the first time, the compact M12 POWER connectors with Push-Lock connection allow easy and reliable conductor connections in AC and DC applications without tools. The clamping chambers are opened and closed easily via a lever. It is therefore also possible to connect flexible conductors with or without ferrules conveniently. The proven spring-cage technology guarantees a secure and reliable connection. The color and numerical coding in the connection area prevents connection errors. In addition, the long-term stability and vibration resistance of the PE connection and optional shielding ensure increased safety and the reliable operation of your system.
