Hannover Messe Hall 12, Stand D03
Harting is based on the Hannover Messe 2020 true to the motto of the industrial show "Industrial Transformation". In this focus, the technology group under the claim "All for Ethernet" ahead and continues to 75th anniversary new standards for the industrial network for networking technical devices, machines and systems. Other highlights include new connector solutions, the Single-pair Ethernet (SPE) Industrial Partner Network as well as other industrial interfaces and configurators.
The growing convergence of IT and automation means that Industrial Ethernet is becoming increasingly important for Industry 4.0 and therefore requires a reliable, intelligent, network-compatible and network-compatible infrastructure. The connector specialist recognized this need early on and created the "RJ Industrial", the first industrial RJ45 interface for industrial applications. It is still the most used data interface today. Since 2016, the “Ix Industrial” interface has consistently continued the path for multi-pair Ethernet. The last big step follows: From Ethernet via SPE to the field level, even the last participants in the smart network are connected to the industrial IoT.
T1 industrial components for IIoT infrastructure
With the IEC 23-2020 published on January 63171, 6, the basis for future IIoT networks has been set and will no longer change. This final agreement on a cross-market Standard for the SPE infrastructure means investment security for users. On this basis, a comprehensive portfolio can now be created for the SPE market.
At the Hanover Fair, series parts of the T1 Industrial interface will be presented in the IP20 variant in a field assembly version in AWG 28-22 and in overmolded AWG 28-22 version. In addition, the corresponding device socket for the robust and standardized SPE connection in the device is presented. An insight into the first design-in projects underline the trade fair appearance.
2020 is the SPE network year
The number of its members in SPE Industrial Partner Network have more than doubled within a few months. The network has grown from seven founding members to the SPS fair in November 2019 to 17 members. Each member company is a technology leader and specialist in its own field. Finally, the different areas are needed to complete and strengthen the SPE ecosystem. The common basis is the international standardization for SPE infrastructure according to IEC 11801-x, IEEE 802.3 and IEC 63171-6, to which all members refer. 2020 is the year of the SPE network. This year, the network will invite you to a number of interesting events at the Hannover Messe.
Secure plug connections for modular energy storage
The technology group is responsible for the heavy-duty connectors Han S a new safe Connection technology for modular battery storage Applications before. The flexible and compact housings offer space for contacts up to 200 A. The add-on housing can be rotated freely, the locking mechanism is intuitive. The colors red for plus and black for minus with additional mechanical coding make the interfaces confusion-free.
The design of the Han S adheres to all technical requirements and the latest standard UL 4128 for stationary energy storage systems. This gives users optimal security. The connectors therefore correspond to the highest standardization level required internationally. The use of connectors accelerates the build-up of energy stores from lithium-ion cells.
The demand for such electricity storage is booming worldwide. Manufacturers have to connect more and more cells to form systems. With Han S this can be done quickly and in accordance with standards. The new connector is therefore suitable for processing large quantities. The connection works safely even at high connection speeds.
Support for the trend towards DC energy transmission
A current and technically demanding trend is in DC power transmission, for which a rapidly growing demand is forecast. For the appropriate installation technology, Harting will present new concepts for technologies for direct current transmission. The Study of a new interface for industrial environments combines performance with data technologies. It transmits voltages up to 800 V and currents up to 40 A and cannot be pulled under load.
In addition to the DC Industries working groups, the manufacturer also works on draft standards from the DKE. The project is based on a cooperation with the Smart Factory KL. At the Hannover Messe, future studies of the new DC interface at different integration levels will be shown on the stands of both companies.
Extended connector configurator function
The Han configurator for industrial interfaces has been given a "customizing" function to improve customer friendliness. With it, individual solutions for cable entries can be designed using the configurator and labels can be attached. At the end of the configuration, all design-relevant data for the individual product are available for download. The user can order the customized solution.
The new function for improvement for the user represents a continuous process - from design and product development to handover in production and assembly. This makes individual interfaces affordable even in small quantities. The new functions of the configurator increase the range of available standards. With this technology, Harting is expanding the variety of products. The Han configurator is to be gradually equipped with further customizing functions.
Cooperation with Perfact and Rinspeed
Harting is further expanding the partnership with the software provider Perfact that was announced at the SPS fair in Nuremberg. More information will be announced at the fair. With Perfact's professional IT solutions for industry, the networking of machines and systems via the Internet is a central component for remote maintenance of machines and systems.
The Swiss automobile manufacturer Rinspeed will also be present again. Rinspeed and Harting have a long-standing, trusting partnership. This year, the technology group is supplying a specially designed interface that supplies the vehicle with power, data and signals. With the Rinspeed metrosnap if you take the next step together for the mobility concepts of tomorrow.
