The cable-based communication in rail vehicles growing in the face of WiFi usage, passenger information systems, and additional sensors and assemblies for electronic monitoring and control. The new "Han" gigabit module from Harting allows the Cat. 7A transmission in the car transition area and offers advantages for noise immunity and frequency range.
In order to meet the need for communication on the train, rail vehicles need powerful networks and interfaces that fit the specific requirements of the rail market. Another important factor is a high transmission speed: Railway operators have supported Cat. 7А decided as future standard. This allows transmission in the frequency range up to 1000 MHz.
Han gigabit module is the first matching modular connector to meet this requirement. Opposite the Cat. 6A significantly improves signal integrity. The shielding against interference also benefits, as Cat. 7A cables consist of four individually shielded pairs of wires, which are surrounded by another braided shield.
The interface is also shock and vibration resistant according to DIN EN 61373, category II, so it is suitable for extreme loads in the railway environment. With the module, you can already install today the Ethernet backbone for future facilities, expansions and conversions of rail vehicles.
The manufacturer not only supports flexible data exchange on the train with unmanaged switches and patch cables. In a chain of sensors, antennas, RFID readers and the Edge Computer "Mica"For filtering, aggregating and compressing the sensor data, environmental data can be recorded wirelessly in the periphery and digitally processed for the control. The Mica platform translates the sensor data from the RFID reader and makes it filtered and reduced to the required extent to other participants in the bus system.
The open hardware and software platform thus promotes digitization in different directions: The Mica communicates between the data protocols of manufacturers of independent systems.
