HARTING Canada is one of the country’s premier suppliers of power-transmission products, especially connectors. The company serves as a powerful partner when it comes to Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). As data volumes increase, businesses requires dependable communication networks tailored according to their individual needs. The ability to access relevant information in real time results in fast, flexible, and efficient production. HARTING communication solutions are contributing to this evolving technology.
An integrated communication architecture
From the sensor to the cloud, HARTING seeks to help develop an integrated communication architecture. The company has been setting milestones for future-proof connectors that meet new challenges, especially regarding stability in challenging environments. Examples include the RJ Industrial, M12 interfaces with X-coding and PushPull locking, and the miniaturized ix Industrial interface. The networked industry of tomorrow will depend on a compact, powerful Ethernet infrastructure.
Among the ways that HARTING communication solutions are playing a part:
- Industrial standard interface for SPE T1 Industrial. The IEC 63171-6 is setting the basis for future IIoT networks. International standards bodies have declared this interface as the standard for SPE in industrial applications, and a comprehensive portfolio for this market is emerging. The T1 interface is the first of its kind, and the IP20 model is now available in field-assembly and over-moulded formats.
- SOE Industrial Partner Network now has 20 members. This is an association of companies with shared interests and a strong, legally binding community of partners. It provides the security needed to implement this new physical layer.
- The Han S. This new connector group enables safe contacting of modular energy storage systems. As global demand for electricity storage rises, the new series offers optimum safety for connected units. Han S communication solutions enable quick, reliable contacting of storage modules and allows processing of large volumes.
- The Han 1A. A miniaturized rectangular connector, perfect for networking. HARTING now offers interfaces tailored to Ethernet applications through this miniaturized series. With two new inserts for fast, secure data transmission; a high-speed Ethernet version works for live camera system applications.
