HARTING has added a slimline M12 connector to its har-speed product family for the 8-wire gigabit Ethernet application environment.
The new har-speed M12 slim design with crimp connection technology is significantly smaller in both diameter and length than the standard version. The external diameter has been cut back to 16.5 mm, allowing designers to achieve high integration density when the connector is used on devices such as industrial Ethernet switches. The design also has a considerably more robust housing than the standard product, being capable of resisting torques greater than 1.5 Nm. The connector is designed to conform to IEC 61076-2-109, and meets 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. These products are capable of withstanding the harshest demands in industrial environments and provide high data rates for electronic applications.
HARTING connectors and network components are used in mechanical engineering and plant manufacturing, in automation systems, energy generation and distribution, and in electronic and telecommunication markets. Industrial connectors are also vital in construction machinery, rail vehicles and shipbuilding. HARTING offers Ethernet network components and cable systems for both indoor and outdoor networking applications involving power and data.
HARTING today employs a workforce of more than 3500 in 37 countries. For further information visit www.HARTING.com
