HARTING M12 L-coded Power Offers Solutions for High Power Applications in Small Package 

Launched at IMTS, September 12-17 in Chicago, the new HARTING M12 Power offers solutions for high power applications - while boasting the small footprint of an M12 connector. This is achieved by a standardization and new encoding, saving users space and interfaces.

The demand for higher energy products with a small footprint in automation has led to the development of new concepts and standards.  In response, HARTING has participated in the development of new industry standards in order to make manufacturer-neutral mating faces a reality. The resulting new IEC 61067-2-111 standard is the basis for future M12 Power connector solutions. 

The new, universal mating face with L-coding has also emerged from this adopted standard. At 63V/16A, the 5-pin L-coding achieves 0.75kW of power, making it ideal for small servo motors, field distribution boxes, field-bus-controlled I/O boxes, power supply devices and valve applications. The M12 L-coded is viewed as the future standard equipment connector and is expected to completely replace the application area of the existing M12 A-coded and 7/8” solutions.
