HARTING has over 70 years’ experience of producing robust industrial connectors. From the very beginning, the focus was always on developing a product which would be easy to handle, durable and adaptable for a range of uses. Another important consideration was an ethos of continuous innovation, which gives users reliable solutions even as markets and industries evolve.   In the case of the Han® 1A (Left), HARTING has recognised and responded to the demand for smaller interface ...

Industry 4.0 is a hot topic, so it’s time to look at how we can integrate Industry 4.0 technologies across machinery, shop floor, and building management systems. To do so involves ensuring equipment is able to work with enhanced communication – including the three lifelines of industry – power, signal and data.   Multi-way communication of ‘big data’ is created by connecting devices so they are able to interact with each other. The modular industrial computin ...
Click here for a quick overview of the ix Industrial®   Ethernet is the undisputed dominant communication standard and as we increasingly rely on staying connected wherever we are, it is permeating ever more areas of our lives. As the demand for smaller, compact electronic and industrial devices grows, so connecting interfaces such as system cables must follow suit. However, whilst these components are reducing in size, they are simultaneously becoming more powerful to meet the demand ...
A secure fit with just one clickThere are many factors to consider when it comes to choosing a suitable connector for panels or control cabinets. Robustness, reliability and adaptability are all high on the list, but as businesses embrace more flexible production processes, simple handling and ease of use are becoming increasingly important. Control cabinets often contain a myriad of switches and connections, so the ability to quickly and efficiently disconnect and reconnect the industrial lifel ...
Rugged, reliable, repeatable, fast, error reduced field wiring offering total on-site installation flexibility   Industry 4.0 requires repeatability, flexibility and reduced downtime. preLink® is HARTING’s fast, reliable, easy to handle cable connector termination system which is perfect for flexible field cabling installation. It is ideal for systems integrator’s/installers, significantly saving site installation time, critical where site access is very limited in order to ...
For modern day automotive plant installation, it is becoming more and more important that functional line control equipment can be installed and maintained as easily and quickly as possible, to minimise downtime. Such operational features are critical for all sections of the full supply chain of OEM, Systems Integrator and automotive plant manufacturer. One example where valuable automotive plant installation time has been significantly reduced is with Motorised Safety Roller Shutter Door Guard ...
In this blog I will briefly cover the standards that are pertinent to RFID transponders, and in particular those applicable to the memory bank of the transponder.   The most common applicable standards are EPC Class 1 Gen 2 and ISO 18000-6C.  The EPC standard is not exclusive to RFID transponders, but is also used extensively in barcode applications.     Read on to discover why standards affect transponder memory make-up, and what this means for applications by clicking this ...

Simplify RFID

Posted by penelope.stanton Jan 22, 2014
  This new blog series has the aim of informing, advising and giving best practice when implementing an RFID System. As with the adoption of any new technology, key concerns amongst new adopters include cost, lack of understanding of the benefits and pitfalls, and stories of failed applications and procedures.  E.g. What happens if I chose the wrong product to suit my application?   Over the coming months I will look to answer some of the questions with the aim to take the mystiq ...
The unique nature of the maritime environment takes a particularly heavy toll on the electrical components at work in offshore wind farms. The HARTING Technology Group has added the Han-Eco® series to its product range, creating another solution for this special application area.         The output from wind farms has risen steadily over recent years. Current plans envisage wind farms providing output up to 15 MW. If these facilities are to be utilized to the fullest ...
