M8 And M12 Connector Coding Resource

Instrumentation Banner

M8 connectors are circular connectors known for their miniature size and smaller than an M12 connector, typically featuring thread of 8mm. The connectors offer a reliable and secure connection, making them ideal for space-constrained installations.

M8 Applications                            

• Thermal Scanner • Robots Arm • IoT Devices • Portable Power Supply • Flow Meter • Equipment & Devices on Weather Station • Pumping Station of Control & Alarm System


• Brass with gold plated pin • Brass with nickel plated or plastic housing • Stainless steel or aluminum to customize

M8 Connector Coding and Purpose

M12 are larger in size and have a higher pin count for a broad range of applications and high current-carrying capabilities. Known for secure IP67, IP 68, and IP69K rating, making it suitable for use in harsh environments and is available in different pin counts.

M12 Applications

• Industrial Automation Devices such as sensors and actuators  • Networking Applications  • Communication Networks • Provide a secure and reliable connection for ethernet and signal transmission in harsh environments

M12 Connector Coding and Purpose

The primary difference between M8 and M12 lies in their size and functionality. The choice between the two depends on the specific application and the requirements of the system.
