Industrial Type M12 Connector Manufacturers

M12 Connectors are made to IEC 61076-2-101 [maybe to IEC 60947-5-2]. Part 2-101 of the IEC 61076 defines a Circular connector of type M8 or M12.
The M8 style comes with a screw or snap lock and 3 or 4 contacts. The M12 style connector comes with a screw lock, used for low voltage and has between 2 and 8 contacts.

These M style connectors may also be coded. Three of the common used keyed types are:
A-Coded; used with Sensor Actuators
B-Coded; used with field buses
D-Coded; used with Industrial Ethernet

M12 Connectors
are used in sensors buses, field buses.
In some cases these M12 connectors are replacing MIL-5015 Military style connectors in some applications.

These industrial connectors may come with an Environmental Protection Rating, or Ingree Protection [IP].
The Definition of the Environmental Protection Rating is provided by the preceding link.
The IP rating indicates protection from either water or dust. Many configurations are rated for IP67/68
Military connectors use military standards and specifications to rate their own connectors.

Commercial Ethernet Connector Manufacturers are located in a different entry.
