Harting har-speed X-code connectors for an M12-cabling system meet the 1/10 Gbit transfer rates and performance class EA required for Cat. 6A in high performance applications. Courtesy: Harting USAHarting offers a Slim Design for its har-speed M12 X-Code connector lineup developed for the type of Cat. 6A Gigabit Ethernet installations often used for machine and plant automation. The har-speed M12 Slim Design with crimp connection has significantly smaller in diameter and length than other M12 connectors and works in any application requiring an M12 X-Code connector, especially those where space is an issue, Harting said. The external diameter is only 16.5 mm to facilitate high integration density on devices like switches. The design features a robust housing capable of resisting torques greater than 1.5 Nm. It has Cat. 6A and EA transfer performance and is IEC/PAS 61076-2-109 compliant for the 8-wire Ethernet environment.

Harting har-speed X-Code connectors make it possible to deploy an M12-cabling system that meets the 1/10 Gbit transfer rates and performance class EA required for Cat. 6A in high performance applications designed to conform to IEC/PAS 61076-2-109. These X-Code connectors’ new mating face performs two tasks: shielding in the connector area (shielded wire pairs) and the coding of the mating face, while ensuring fault-free plugging with other 8-pole M12 connectors. A connection error with other 8-pole M12s is impossible. The har-speed M12 features overmolded variants in different lengths and a crimp connector for on-site assembly along with panel feed through accessories and board mounted receptacles.

Harting products are said to work in almost all industrial markets with a focus on requirements for robust, reliable connectivity solutions. The Harting Technology Group, family owned and based in Germany, employs approximately 3,500 people globally across more than 40 subsidiaries and branch offices. With production facilities in Europe, Asia, and the United States, Harting connectivity products serve machine, device, and communication infrastructure. The U.S. plant in Elgin, Ill., is one of three Harting locations that manufactures the HIS product line (Harting Integrated Solutions/ back-planes) and custom cable assemblies. The company’s core business is intelligent and high-performance connection technology.
