Yamaichi Electronics released the M12 push-pull with inner locking, Y-Circ M. The system is IP65 / IP67 water and dust proof. Mechanically, it is extremely robust due to the particularly long locking hooks, even when subjected to torsional loads.
The cable-side connector engages into the device socket from the inside with locking hooks. As a result, the push-pull system requires only the same installation space as a common M12 connection with screw locking.
With this technology, it is possible to completely insert the M12 socket into the device, e.g. to integrate it into a distribution box, aligned flush with its housing.
Standardization Brings Security
The system is currently in the process of international standardization for CDV IEC 61076-2-012. In contrast to many other proprietary quick locking systems, this ensures cross-manufacturer compatibility and procuarbility.
Fully Backward Compatible
The wall-mount socket can still be mated with conventional M12 connectors with screw locking. Therefore, users are not necessarily dependent on a special cable connector and thus remain flexible.
The system is already available in the coding A, B and D.
X-coding for high data rates according to CAT.6A and L-coding for power transmission will follow shortly.
