Ethernet cabling system for industrial applications
Harting’s Ha-VIS preLink is an Ethernet cabling system for industrial applications and can snap securely into any one of seven mating profiles: RJ45, PushPull RJ45, M12 D-coded, M12 X-coded, RJ45 Harting Industrial Form Factor, RJ45 Keystone, and a preLink extender for cable extensions and transitions, solid-stranded. Wires are inserted into the preLink termination block according to their color codes and a preLink crimping tool is designed to ensure the wires are always assembled precisely and correctly. The cable is terminated and extra wire trimmed in one step. When the wired termination block is snapped into place in the connector, it becomes a part of that unit instead of a separate interface.
The preLink system is designed for installations in cramped spaces or junction boxes. Pre-assembled cable segments can be swapped out quickly during maintenance and upgrades. It also offers users a unique opportunity for future-proofing: An eight wire cable can be terminated even for use in a four-wire format. When the time comes to upgrade, like switching from fast to Gigabit Ethernet, there is no need to re-terminate: The wired termination block can be moved from a 4-pole D-coded M12 to an 8-pole X-coded M12 housing in seconds. Until that day comes, the unused pairs are shielded to prevent cross-talk.
