Harting has enlarged its product portfolio for Gigabit Ethernet connectivity by introducing a female version of the M12 Slim Design connector. The new connector complements the existing male version, so that all the company’s compact M12 variants are now available in crimp connection technology.
The new connectors have been significantly reduced both in diameter and length: the outer diameter has been slimmed down to 16.5mm, allowing a high integration density to be achieved with appropriate devices such as switches. In addition, the housing is significantly more robust, being able to withstand torques of up to 1.5Nm. The connectors with x-coding conform to IEC 61076-2-109, and comply with Cat. 6A and Performance Class EA.
The Harting Group develops, manufactures and distributes electrical and electronic connectors, network components, pre-assembled system cables, and backplane assemblies.
