NEW PRODUCT FROM HARTING

(Thursday 5th November, 2015 at 15:12)

The assembled contact is inserted into the prepared PCB and the included mandrel is pressed in order to lock it to the PCB. The functionality is remarkably simple and is similar to a typical push button. In addition to the technical parameters, the development effort also emphasised optimised processing. As a result, the overall costs of PCB manufacture are optimised while equipment costs are reduced.

New tools for safe and simple assembly of industrial connectors

(Monday 13th October, 2014 at 9:49)
New tools for safe and simple assembly of industrial connectors

The new tightening torque tool offers the simplest operation and reproducible quality with a fixed torque (0.5 Nm) which makes over- or under-tightening impossible. The new slimline screwdrivers are ideal for lean assembly with the integration of the insulation at blade diameter.

The new 4-indent crimp tool features a rotatable locator with integral marking of the crimp settings to make its operation significantly easier. This results in the expected high crimp quality of a 4-indent crimp with low operating force requirements.

Signal, Data, Power together at last

Industrial automation is increasingly reliant on data exchange for a host of applications including efficiency improvements and traceability. Machine builders are in turn looking at ways to improve machine performance and reduce assembly and installation costs.

The new M23 Hybrid connector solution from Phoenix Contact offers a new approach to provide signal, data and power to machines with exceptional performance and cost saving potential. With 4 signal, 4 CAT5 data, and 4 power + PE contacts housed in a single connector, the M23 Hybrid enables daisy chain connectivity to decentralise control and reduce device cabling.

  • M23 Hybrid features include:
  • ◾4 Signal up to 8A, 50V.
  • ◾4 Data CAT5 (optional unshielded 4 pole signal insert).
  • ◾4 Power + PE up to 30A, 850V DC / 630V AC.
  • ◾IP67/69 protection.

The product portfolio comprises cable connectors, couplers, straight & angles device connectors, and over moulded cable assembles made to order. The connectors feature SPEEDCON fast connection technology.

The M23 Hybrid offers machine builders and device manufacturers a new solution to reduce cabling and save space on the device and in the cable tray

Ion Python Neutralising Hand Gun

The Vermason Ion Python Neutralising Hand Gun quickly and effectively neutralises bulk static charges and aids in controlling contamination by dislodging dust and debris attracted by static electricity. These units are designed for use in applications and areas where ElectroStatic Attraction contamination create manufacturing or handling problems (Ref: ESD Handbook TR 20.20 paragraph 5.3.6.5.2.4 Point of Use Ionization).

  • The units meet or exceed the recommended technical requirements of EN 61340-5-2.
  • FEATURES:
  • Point-Of-Use Ioniser, Adjustable (30-100 PSI) Compressed Air Ioniser
  • Detachable ESD Safe Hose 2.1m Hose
  • Stainless Steel Base
  • Optional Multi-Mount, Hands-Free, Python Attachment
  • Nitrogen Compatible

Hall-effect current sensors

(Friday 29th August, 2014 at 15:28)
Hall-effect current sensors
  • Hall-effect current sensors cover range from 100 A to 800 A.

The HCSE sensors can measure direct or alternating currents, including signals with complex waveforms, over a frequency range from 0 to 50 kHz. Because the devices use proven Hall-effect technology to sense the magnetic field created by the current flowing in a conductor, they provide non-contact, galvanically isolated measurements with high immunity to interference from the magnetic fields of external current-carrying conductors.

Thanks to their high reliability and accuracy, the new sensors are ideal for application such as power supplies for welding equipment, rectifiers for direct current drives or uninterruptible power supplies.

HARTING Gigabit cabling components for PROFINET applications

(Friday 17th January, 2014 at 11:28)
HARTING Gigabit cabling components for PROFINET applications

Harting has introduced a range of Gigabit cabling components designed to extend the scope of industrial PROFINET applications into the Gigabit Ethernet range.

Until now, PROFINET solutions have been based on Fast Ethernet operating at 100 Mbit/s, but the new Harting products, which include all the familiar Fast Ethernet RJ45 PROFINET cabling components, will allow future PROFINET applications to work in conjunction with a Gigabit Ethernet platform.

PROFINET systems based on these products will offer more variety and performance as well as being faster. They will also give users the option of incorporating standard Gigabit devices into PROFINET solutions, with the cabling containing eight wires instead of four.

For PROFINET users, this means that all the well-known 4-wire RJ45 PROFINET cabling components are now available in an 8-core version. In combination with Harting quality, the PROFINET standard guarantees users ease of handling and a reliable network over the entire life of a system.

In addition to the established PROFINET cabling components such as type A, B or C cables and connection technology based on RJ45 or M12, 8-wire cabling has also added a new element: the control cabinet cord. This RJ45 system cord, newly defined by the PNO (PROFIBUS Nutzerorganisation e.V.), is designed for use in control cabinets and IP20/30 environments. It features an 8-core design and is based on an AWG26 cable. This gives it significant flexibility, making it ideal for space-saving installation for short links or for connections that can only be achieved through tight bending radii in the cabinet.

HARTING new PCB connector

(Wednesday 4th September, 2013 at 16:21)
HARTING new PCB connector
  • HARTING introduces har-speed M12 connector incorporating MID technology

HARTING has expanded its har-speed range of connectors with a new PCB connector which will be manufactured using moulded interconnect device (MID) technology. A straight variant for PCB connection will initially be launched on the market.

This use of MID technology means that the size of the new connector has been significantly reduced compared with a conventional PCB connector. The new addition to the M12 range is intended for the integration of the M12 connector configuration into high-speed communication devices such as switches and routers.

Shielding inside the connector is redefined with MID technology. The metal shielded cross is now superfluous. Two plastics are used in the 2-shot MID process, one of which can be deployed with a surface coating in a plating process. The new connector is significantly lighter, with a weight reduction of around 30% per component, and like the larger conventional device can be soldered onto the circuit board in the reflow process.

The new MID variant also meets Cat 6A and performance class EA requirements like the products already available from HARTING.

NEW PRODUCT FROM HARTING

(Friday 10th May, 2013 at 8:53)
  • High-density rectangular connector for harsh environments.

The new connector has been developed to address the challenges presented by harsh ambient conditions where ease of handling is needed in addition to the connector being dust-proof, dirt-proof and waterproof. In particular, it can be used in environments in which gloves are worn: something that is not possible with the conventional D-Sub connector.

The new connector meets this requirement because it can be used in all housing models of the HARTING Han(R) 3A size. The extensive range of housing types comprises metal and plastic housings for use in interior and exterior environments, EMC housings for high screening attenuation applications and stainless steel housings for extreme requirements such as those typically found in the food industry.
