PushPull connection to PCB saves on assembly time
Devices can be used in ever-smaller installation spaces
Ethernet is transferred from the cable to the circuit board: this is the goal of the new M12 PushPull PCB connection. The direct connection to the PCB comes in an angled D-coded female variant and thus provides space-saving switches with Fast Ethernet up to 100Mbit/s. The direct M12 PushPull connection to the PCB saves additional wiring, assembly space and thus space as well in a generation of devices that are becoming smaller and smaller.
Moreover, this means that these devices are themselves in turn can be used in ever-smaller installation spaces. This small change has a big impact in the way of miniaturisation.
