The HARTING Technology Group has been a force for innovation, major standards and industrial milestones for 75 years. The 75th anniversary will be celebrated at numerous events this year. HANNOVER MESSE in April will be the high point of all of these celebrations.

The HARTING Technology Group is leading the way to industrial transformation with the claim “All for Ethernet”, setting new standards for industrial networks. Gaining in importance through the merging of the world of IT and automation, Industrial Ethernet cannot do without a reliable infrastructure fit for industry. HARTING recognised this need early on, creating in RJ Industrial the first RJ45 interface fit for industrial applications – a milestone and still the most widely used data interface.2020-02-12_All_for_Ethernet.jpg HARTING continued pursuing the path of constant innovation and serving market needs in 2016 with the ix Industrial interface for the familiar multi-pair ethernet. The next big step came after that: from ethernet via SPE into the field, for a smart connection of the last network participants to the IIoT.

All T1 Industrial components for your IIoT infrastructure

Published on 23 January 2020, IEC 63171-6 created the basis for all future IIoT networks – and it hasn’t changed. This doesn’t mean that things have stood still, but that there has been ultimate agreement over a market-wide standard for SPE infrastructure, meaning investment security for users. On this basis, a comprehensive portfolio can be developed for the single-pair ethernet market.

2020-02-12_T1_Industrial.jpgSerial parts for the IP20 version of the T1 Industrial interface in the field assembly format in AWG 28-22 and overmoulded AWG 28-22 will be on show for the first time ever at HANNOVER MESSE. HARTING is also presenting the corresponding device socket for a robust and standardised SPE connection with the device. Device developers will get to see the first design-in projects at the fair.

SPE Industrial Partner Network sees strong growth

The SPE Industrial Partner Network has more than doubled its membership in just a few months. Starting with seven founding members, the number rose to 16 after the SPS fair in November 2019. Each company is a technology leader in its own right, specialising in different areas, which it needs to strengthen and complete the SPE ecosystem. This shared common basis creates the international standardisation for SPE infrastructure to IEC 11801-x, IEEE 802.3 and IEC 63171-6, to which all members refer. 2020 is the year of the SPE network. The network will be holding a series of interesting events at this year’s HANNOVER MESSE.

Han S: secure connections for modular energy storage

The Technology Group has new products for the field of heavy-duty connectors. Han S is the new secure connection technology for modular battery storage. The compact, flexible housing has room for contacts up to 200 A. The mounting housing is freely rotating and access to the locking mechanism is intuitive. Red for plus and black for minus with additional mechanical coding makes the interfaces interchangeable.

Han S gives users optimum security, as the design meets all technical requirements and the latest UL 4128 standards for stationary energy storage systems. This means that the new connectors meet the highest standards demanded by the market.

The use of connectors speeds up the assembly of energy storage units made of lithium-ion cells. Global demand for this type of storage battery is booming. Manufacturers are having to connect more and more cells to systems. Han S allows for rapid and standardised contact here. This makes the new connector an optimum solution for high processing volumes. Users can also depend on the connection working securely at a high production rate.

Focus on DC connectors

For 75 years, HARTING has continually set high standards for new industrial interfaces. At present, there is a technologically demanding trend towards DC power transmission in the industrial environment, with significant growth expected for this type of power supply. In order to provide suitable installation technology for these applications, HARTING will be presenting new concepts of DC power transmission at the Hannover Fair 2020. The study of a new DC interface for industrial application will be presented, which is characterised by power and data technology. It transmits voltages up to 800 V as well as currents up to 40 A and cannot be pulled under load. In addition to the working groups of DC Industries, HARTING is also involved in drafting the DKE standards.

The project is the result of a cooperation between HARTING and the Smart Factory KL. At the Hannover Fair, future-oriented studies of the new DC interface at different levels of integration will be shown on the stands of both companies.

Extended customising functions for Han configurator

The Han configurator for industrial interfaces has a new customising function. It allows users to use the configurator to design individual solutions for cable entry points and apply labels. When configuration is complete, although it is an “individual” product, all design-relevant data is available for download and users can order the customised solution. The new function makes for a continuous process: this goes from design to product development, production phase and assembly, enabling customers to design products easily on their own and have them delivered within a very short time. This makes individual interfaces affordable, even in smaller volumes. The amount of time for designing a new product is reduced, just as it is by the automatic quality inspection of the design. The configurator’s new customisation functions ultimately increase the range of available standards for clients. HARTING is using this technology to increase its product range and will be adding more and more customising functions to the Han configurator.

Increased cooperation with software developer PerFact

HARTING is pushing forward with the development of new technology. Announced at the SPS fair in Nuremberg in November 2019, the software partnership with PerFact is being expanded. HARTING and PerFact will be issuing more details at HANNOVER MESSE. PerFact develops professional IT solutions for industry. Linking machines via the Internet is a major aspect of remote machine maintenance.

HARTING interface delivers Power, Data, Signal for “metroSNAP”

And the Swiss car maker Rinspeed will be at HANNOVER MESSE again this year. Rinspeed and HARTING are linked by a trust-based partnership going back many years. This year, the Technology Group is providing a specially designed interface to supply the vehicle with Power, Data and Signal. With “metroSNAP”, HARTING and Rinspeed are taking the next step towards mobility concepts of the future. Whether it’s transporting people or goods – the vehicle is highly versatile. The HARTING module helps drivers to configure the vehicle quickly and flexibly for a wide range of tasks.

Safety Scanner or Safety Mat? How to Choose the Right Safeguarding Device.

 

Omron Safety ScannerYou've done your risk assessment, and now it's time to implement a risk reduction strategy using engineering control measures. Since physical barriers can be costly and impractical, many manufacturers opt for what are known as presence sensing devices, a category that includes technologies like safety light curtains, safety laser scanners, and safety mats.

Because they don’t physically prevent an operator from reaching the hazard zone, presence sensing devices only work for machines that can be stopped anywhere in their cycle. Each device must be positioned far enough away from the machine that it’s extremely unlikely for anyone to be able to reach the danger area after triggering the safety response.

Pandemic Creates New Job Roles and Fosters Automation Investment

Pandemic Job RolesBy Pat McGibbon, Chief Knowledge Officer, AMT

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” This observation was made by philosopher George Santayana in 1905, but can help manufacturers today avoid mistakes in responding to the impacts of the pandemic. History shows that there are two likely outcomes of the current crisis which relate to manufacturing.

First, automation and digital manufacturing technologies will expand sooner and faster than the manufacturing technology market as a whole over the next two years. Second, this growth spurt will lead to changes in the manufacturing workforce throughout the recovery.
