M12 & 1/2-20" Connectors Keyway Chart

KEYWAY CHART MI2 &1/2-20 CONNECTORS CIRCULAR M12 AND 2-20" CORDSETS AND RECEPTACLES ARE AVAILABLE IN A VARIETY OF PIN CONFIGURATIONS AND WIRE COLOR CODES. IN ADDITION TO A VARIETY OF PIN OUT AND COLOR CODE DIFFERENCES, EACH OF THESE CONNECTORS ALSO HAS DISTINCT KEYWAYS. BELOW IS A CHART DISPLAYING THESE KEYWAYS. MICRO-DC The Micro-DC (MDC) series, also known as micro-change or M12, is one of the most widely used industrial quick disconnects in the industrial market. Despite the name, these euro-style connectors can be used in both AC or DC applications. The uses of these applications in industrial automation are ess, but they are commonly used in factory automation for items such as sensors, actuators, A-CODE motors, switches, safety light curtains and mats, and interlock switches to name a few.

This allows two unique M12 connectors to be mounted on the same panel without fear of incorrectly coupling connectors to equipment with varrying voltage and amperages.

The use of a double keyway (C-Code) prevents it from accidentally plugging into one of the other similarly sized connectors.
