Harting Technology Group Unveils IIoT and Automation Technologies

At this year's SPS IPC Drives trade fair, held in Nuremberg on Nov. 27-29, the Harting Technology Group showcased several new connectivity products and solutions for smart and digital automation. Among them were two new miniaturized Ethernet interfaces: the ix Industrial and IEC 61076-3-124 models. At the event, Harting used an example production process to demonstrate how powerful connectivity for transmitting data, power and signals simplifies interaction between the IIoT and automation. Harting also demonstrated its PushPull locking technology.

According to Harting, PushPull technology is becoming increasingly important since, as connectors become smaller and smaller, previously known locking techniques such as screw locking will no longer be adequate. At the trade show, Harting presented the next product in its PushPull portfolio, known as Dr. Metrix.

Harting's Han-Modular Flexbox makes it possible to supply the linearly moving components of machines and systems, and represents a new interface in the firm's modular plastic housing system. According to the company, the Flexbox is intended to make it easier for users to install and maintain longer, moving cable runs for machines and machine modules.

With the Han ES Press HMC series, Harting has developed interfaces that can be installed quickly without tools and can withstand at least 10,000 mating cycles. The Han ES Press series offers high resistance to vibration, and is designed to reduce installation and connection times for consumers in comparison to conventional cage clamps, screw connections and hard-wiring techniques.

The company introduced other products at the event as well. Visit Harting's website for more information.
