Provertha M12 Gender Changer connector which enables cables with the same type of connector to be mated is now available from Aerco.
Gender changers make it feasible to connect cables with the same type of connectors (female/female or male/male). The new Gender Changer is available in versions for Profinet, Industrial Ethernet, DeviceNet/CAN bus and Profibus. It is available as B, D and A-coded versions (five and eight poles).
Interference-free data transfer and excellent EMC are assured, thanks to 360-degree shielding and fully-shielded housing in addition to twisted crimp contacts. The ability to easily combine male and female connectors in addition to the coding on each connection side permits a high degree of flexibility. Eight different coding positions are possible.
