The M12 PushPull standard for automation


The PushPull locking saves 80% assembly time and simplifies the connection of circular connectors in automation.

The M12 PushPull standard for automation

The IEC standard 61076-2-010 finally brings an industry-wide uniform push-pull locking system for circular connectors in factory automation. Slow screwing was yesterday. With PushPull it's: Click & Connect! Simple, fast and reliably connected. Regardless of whether the device socket is vertical or recessed, a PushPull locking system in accordance with IEC 61076-2-010 always gives device manufacturers the right solution from a single source.

Time saving

The PushPull locking system offers a high time saving of approximately 80 percent when connecting the automation components, as screwing is no longer necessary. Calculated over the course of a year, this means that enormous savings potentials can be realised during assembly.


Due to the improved handling, device ports can be arranged more compactly, which corresponds to the desire for miniaturisation and economical cabling.

Safe handling

In addition to saving time, there is no need to check the correct tightening torque of the lock using a torque spanner. The user receives an acoustic feedback that audibly indicates the correct locking - a simple, fast and safe locking.

Backwards compatible

New device sockets with PushPull contour according to IEC 61076-2-010 enable the use of familiar M12 connectors with screw locking or also with PushPull locking. This means that devices can be designed to be backwards compatible.


IP65/67 protected, shock and vibration proof according to IEC 61373.

Well shielded

EMC protected with a full metal housing.
