HARTING showcases new standards and solutions for intelligent infrastructure in the field

The HARTING Technology Group will once again present a wide range of new products and smart solutions (Hall 11 / Stand C13) at this year’s HANNOVER MESSE (1 April to 5 April 2019). HARTING will be emphasising this year’s motto for the HANNOVER MESSE: “Integrated Industry – Industrial Intelligence”. This means combining human and artificial intelligence to create industrial intelligence that adds value for customers. The HARTING products are smart, clever and easy to handle.

HARTING is driving development forward in Ethernet connectivity for the networks of the future. Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) is a hot topic in the market for industrial cabling. HARTING provides the right standardised interfaces for this and will be showcasing the first serial products at HANNOVER MESSE 2019, making the leap as a pioneer of Industrie 4.0 from a technology trend to real-life application and a customer-specific solution.

“We are following our own consistent path with an IEC standardised interface: recognising trends, defining standards and delivering reliable products,” says Frank Welzel, Director of Product Management, HARTING Electronics. The HARTING stand will include the first IP20 interface consisting of a connector and a PCB socket.

HARTING RJ Industrial MultiFeature series

With RJ Industrial in the new MultiFeature series, HARTING has been able to fulfil its customers’ wishes and requirements for even easier operation and assembly in the field. Further development of the successful RJ Industrial standards has resulted in tool-free assembly, simple operation and a robust metal housing.

The ability to use these for AWG 26 to 22 wire strands and their robust cable attachment are properties that make installation easier and quicker for the installer. While the classic RJ45 was a telecommunications development that was not enough for every industrial demand, the HARTING RJ Industrial MultiFeature series can cope with all the requirements and challenges of a hard operating environment. Safe Cat. 6A performance, IP20 and IP65/67 housing combined with PoE power supplies IEEE802.3af (PoE 15.4W) / IEEE802.3at (PoE 25.5W) / IEEE802.3bt (PoE 100W) supply data and power for any device.

M12 PushPull meets IEC 61076-3-126 / IEC 61076–2–010

Dr. Metrix is the new face of time-saving PushPull interlock mechanisms. HARTING’s new heroine represents clever PushPull technology on metric circular connectors and connection in seconds. Dr. Metrix first provided a comprehensive M12 PushPull solution for factory automation on SPS IPC drives. It will continue its mission at HANNOVER MESSE 2019, jetting into the future with one click.

Finding the right general standards for M12 PushPull interlock mechanisms will now be easy as part of the standardisation work actively driven forward by HARTING. This will make customers feel more secure about their investments, as well as meeting the requirements of the M12 as a recognised standardised interface.

Compact, robust and rectangular: Han 1A

The Technology Group has also come up with innovations for heavy-duty connectors: the Han 1A is a new compact and extremely robust rectangle connector that can handle data, signals and power with up to twelve contacts. It is made from high-performance plastic, is light and takes up very little installation space.

Given its modular construction and range of different uses, it is particularly suitable for use in areas where a supply is needed for multiple small drives, sensors and devices.

Han metal housing for simpler control cabinet assembly

HARTING now offers the metal housing for the Han B, EMC and M series in versions that allow the rear assembly of contact inserts. The new option makes it easier to assemble interfaces for control cabinets, aimed particularly at applications in machinery and automation, robotics and traffic and energy technology.

Hygienic and safe: Han connectors for the food industry

With Han F+B, HARTING has created a range of connectors specifically for the requirements of the food industry. Smooth surfaces make it harder for bacteria to accumulate. The housings and seals are robust, safe and long-lasting: they prevent the internal contacts coming into contact with the water from high-pressure cleaners or aggressive cleaning agents.

Hygiene and safety are decisive factors in food processing: the junctions, surfaces, threads and seals of the Han F+B connectors were therefore designed in a way that makes it harder for dirt particles to stick to them. Round curves on the housings and accessories prevent the build-up of dirt pockets that are an ideal breeding ground for bacteria.

Update on Han Configurator for industrial connectors

HARTING introduced its Han Configurator for industrial connectors at Hannover Messe last year. The intelligent system allows customers to generate concrete suggestions for custom-fit interfaces on the basis of a few entries. We will be showcasing new functions and extensions at the trade fair this year, such as optimised 3D display of the relevant configuration results.

HARTING accelerates e-mobility:

The HARTING stand in Hanover will be also be presenting the “microSNAP”, the latest vehicle concept from Swiss automotive visionary Frank M. Rinderknecht. The bold idea behind “microSNAP”: the quick removal and replacement of the chassis, drive (“Skateboard”) and bodies (“Pods”). Together with Kuka, HARTING will be presenting a corresponding robot-operated charging station for quickly recharging batteries. A Kuka robot connects the HARTING charging plug and ends the charging process when the drive battery has reached the required charge level. This means that the vehicle is ready to use again in a very short space of time. A solution with plenty of areas of application.
