Automobile specialist Rinspeed presents the new Concept vehicle “Metrosnap" on CES 2020 in January in Las Vegas. The developer relies on the Harting technology group with an individually designed Interfacethat supplies the vehicle with energy, data and signals. The interface module supports the driver in using the vehicle quickly and flexibly for a wide variety of tasks.
Like its predecessors "Snap" and "Microsnap", the Metrosnap also consists of two elements, the moving skateboard as an optimized electric vehicle and the so-called pod, which can be changed flexibly for different tasks. Between these two elements, communication, signal transmission and the energy supply must always function smoothly via the interface. Once the pod and skateboard are securely connected, the connectivity connection between them is established automatically. Taking into account the special requirements for a mechanical connector, power, signals and data then flow via the interface.
In the past two years, a fast charging charging solution from the subsidiary Harting Automotive has been supplying the Rinspeed vehicles. The company recently saw a strong increase in demand for e-mobility solutions. Based on its decades of experience in the field of connection and transmission technology, the company develops and produces charging equipment for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.
The two companies have been working together successfully since 2016: The "Mica" mini PC was installed in the "Etos" vehicle for independent emission and condition monitoring. In 2017 Harting supported the “Oasis” rinspeed car with another component from the evolutionary IPC ecosystem “Minimica”. In 2018 there was quick charging technology for the "Snap". Last year the microsnap was loaded with the quick charge push.

For his outstanding commitment as a designer and promoter of technology, science and business, Dr.-Ing. eh Dietmar Harting (2., left) was honored with the award of the Karmarsch-Denkmünze of the Leibniz Universitätsgesellschaft Hannover eV. The eulogy was held by former President Christian Wulff.
The Harting Technology Group in Espelkamp held up well in the 2018/19 financial year despite a difficult economic environment. Sales declined slightly and fell by 1,6% to € 750 million (previous year: € 762 million). The globally active family company achieved the second-highest turnover in its 74-year history.
With the “Han” configurator from Harting for the design of connectors, users can now make individual adjustments to the housings of mass-produced industrial interfaces for the first time. Cable entries and labeling of housings can be modified.
SPS Hall 10, Stand 140 Harting, TE Connectivity, Hirose, Würth Elektronik, Leoni, Murrelektronik and Softing IT Networks establish with "SPE Industrial Partner Network" an open partner network for companies that are active for the Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) Drive the growing IIoT market. This significantly expands the SPE cooperation presented at the Hannover Messe 2019. There will be an information event at the SPS on November 27.11.19, 16 at XNUMX p.m.
Guideline for information technology building cabling The new publication of the VDE publishing house "Application-neutral communication cable systems according to EN 50173 and EN 50174" by Engels Y., Hüdepohl K., Oehler A., Schmidt R. (Harting), Wilhelm, D. deals with the topics grounding, shielding and installation quality. The trends 25/40 Gbit and single pair Ethernet as well as Power over Ethernet (PoE) / Pover over Data Lines (PoDL) are also presented. 2019, 300 pages, paperback, ISBN 978-3-8007-4517-3
Harting and partners presented solutions for the future of electric mobility at this year's Gitex Technology Exhibition at the Etisalat stand. Etisalat is a state-owned telecommunications company in the United Arab Emirates that offers telephone and internet services. In addition, Etisalat is driving the technologies of the future, such as cloud use and the use of the Internet of Things.
Data-based targeted use of fertilizers and crop protection agents, sensors for soil analysis and autonomous driving are just a few keywords in the current discussion about "Farming 4.0" or "Smart Farming". The focus day "Farming and Food Technology Trends", which itelligence AG is organizing together with the Technical University OWL and Harting and other partners in Bielefeld on September 25, 2019, illustrates the potential in digital agriculture.
At Husum Wind, Harting presented new products and solutions that support the trend towards reducing costs in the wind energy industry, including the new “Han” connector series B with reverse mounting, the new “Han 1A” made of high-performance plastic and a fiber optic rotary transmitter for light waves with bidirectional data transmission.
