Connectors for electrical and electronic equipment – Product requirements – Part 2-114: Circular connectors – Detail specification for connectors with M8 screw-locking with power contacts and signal contacts for data transmission up to 100 MHz

This part of IEC 61076 describes circular connectors with M8 screw locking typically used for data and power transmissions in industrial applications. These connectors consist of fixed and free connectors that are either rewireable or non-rewireable. Data transmission performance is for Category 5 up to 100 MHz.
Two coded versions, identified as D-coded and P-coded, are provided that differ by their pin size and optionally by number of poles, hence by the function provided for field applications.
Male connectors have round contacts Ø 0,8 mm for D-coded, and Ø 1 mm for P-coded connectors.
The coding provided by this document prevents the mating of accordingly coded male or female connectors to any other similarly sized interfaces covered by other standards.
NOTE M8 is the dimension of the thread of the screw-locking mechanism of these circular connectors.
