Against the background of rising data volumes, companies need reliable industrial communication networks that are tailored to their specific requirements. Being able to access all relevant data in real time ensures significantly faster, more flexible and more efficient production processes.
Small Ethernet infrastructures key for the networked industry
For many years, HARTING has been seting milestones for future-proof connectors that meet these rising requirements, particularly with regard to their stability in challenging environments. HARTING turned the RJ45 into the RJ Industrial®, created modular M12 interfaces with X-coding and PushPull locking, and set the next major milestone in Industrial Ethernet with the miniaturized ix Industrial® interface – which is 70% smaller than an RJ45, yet significantly more robust. ix Industrial® is one of the most important components in the HARTING solution portfolio for its All for Ethernet segment. A compact and powerful Ethernet infrastructure is the key to the networked industry of tomorrow!
Industrial standard interface for SPE T1 Industrial available ex stock
Users can now make investments with a reassuring measure of security: IEC 63171-6, published on 23 January 2020, sets the basis for future IIoT networks. The international standards bodies ISO/IEC and TIA have declared the IEC 63171-6 interface as the standard for SPE in industrial applications. On this foundation, a comprehensive portfolio for the Single Pair Ethernet market is now emerging.
The T1 Industrial interface is the first of its kind. The IP20 version is now available ex stock in field assembly format (AWG 28-22) and an overmoulded format (AWG 28-22).
SPE Industrial Partner Network grows to 20 members
Last year saw the foundation of the SPE Industrial Partner Network e.V.. As a registered association, the Network is more than just a loose association of companies with shared interests – it is a strong, legally binding community of partners. Consequently, it provides the security required to implement this new physical layer. All the companies in the network are technology leaders in their own right; between them, they specialise in the various fields needed to strengthen and complete the SPE ecosystem. The common, unifying basis of their work is the international standardisation for SPE infrastructure in accordance with IEC 11801-x, IEEE 802.3 and IEC 63171-6. In the space of just a few months, numerous strong partner companies from various fields of industrial production have expressed their support for IEC 63171-6 and joined the SPE Industrial Partner Network
Han® S: Safe contacting of modular energy storage systems
In Han® S, HARTING is – for the first time - introducing a special connector for battery storage modules. Global demand for electricity storage systems is booming. The new series meets the technical requirements of the latest standards for stationary energy storage systems (including UL 4128) and offers users optimum safety for the connected units. The single-pole connector solution with a 200A high-current contact is mechanically coded, is coloured red and black for easy identification, and locks intuitively. In this way, Han® S enables fast, reliable contacting of storage modules and enables the processing of large volumes.
Han® 1A: Miniaturised rectangular connector ideal for networking
The Ethernet networks sensors, machines, controllers, computers and data centres. HARTING is now offering interfaces tailored to these applications as part of the miniaturized Han® 1A industrial connector series.
The Han® 1A features two new inserts for fast and secure data transmission. This can be used to supply end devices with up to 100 Mbit/s Cat. 5 Fast Ethernet for Profinet-based communication; a 10 Gbit/s, Cat. 6A version for High-Speed Ethernet is also available. The latter is used for live camera system applications.
The headquarters of the HARTING Technology Group is located in Espelkamp - in the economically strong region of East Westphalia-Lippe.
Innovative strength, commitment and entrepreneurial foresight paved the way for the further development of the company into what is today a successful global player with around 4,600 employees worldwide. HARTING wants to shape the future with technologies for people and create value for people.
