Provertha's M12-Mini X-Code cable connector series has been certified according to relevant standards. The certification comprises all straight and angled (backplane) 10Gbit Ethernet variants in the reliable, vibration-proof crimp connection technology. The turned crimp contacts have a notably higher current carrying capacity for employment in special applications. The M12-Mini X-Code in protection class IP67 (screw-locked) is the industry's most compact 10GigE cable connector for space-saving Ethernet, or Profinet connection be used in a temperature range from -40C to +85C.

All of these connectors have successfully passed the tests according to DIN EN 61373 'Railway rolling stock equipment – Shock and vibration tests' (category 1, class B, and 2). Also, they offer the 500h corrosion protection, successfully passing the salt spray test according to EN 60512-11-6. Moreover, the complete test programme according to the M12 connector standard IEC 61076-2-109, comprising the test group FP for the electrical transmission parameters, was successfully passed in a certified test laboratory.

These cable connectors are ideal for applications in railway technology and extremely harsh industrial environments subject to shock and vibration, such as for presses in automotive manufacturing. Due to the raised corrosion protection and the increased shock and vibration resistance, the connectors are perfect for mobile automation applications. Likewise, the circular connectors assure reliable signal transmission in the tightest installation spaces in demanding applications such as video and medical technology.
