X-code connection technology is experiencing a significant increase in interest as more companies look for higher network speeds and more reliable, high-quality data transmissions. The 8-pin M12 X-code design is the most recent evolution in the Industrial environment which can handle 10 Gbit/s Ethernet transmission speeds. Category 6A (Cat6A) cables usually consist of standardized twisted pair cables for Ethernet and other network layers. These can handle data rates up to 10 Gbit/s. In order to withstand these high speeds and data output, Cat6A cables have significant shielding and cable twist requirements. The M12 X-code connector is specially developed for these requirements, whereby the channel pairs are separated and the degree of shielding in the connector itself has been increased. The new M12 X-coded cordsets, which are UL certified and have an IP67 rating for dust-tight and waterproof applications ensure efficient, high-quality and reliable connectivity and high integrity signal transmission.
