M8/M12 Circular Connector Applications

The M12 circular connector was first utilized for the signal transfer of industrial sensors within the automotive manufacturing sector in the early 1980's. It has since become a leader in the industrial automation and industrial controls sector with its ability to endure stressful environments and protect against dust while remaining waterproof. Shortly thereafter, the M8 circular connector made its debut as a smaller more compact version of its close relative. The flexibility of cabling options and various pin counts have made the M8/M12 circular connectors popular on the ground floor of manufacturing plants in multiple industries due to their rugged and reliable capabilities amidst demanding applications.
