Data-driven targeted use of fertilizers and pesticides, sensors for soil analysis and autonomous driving are just a few of the buzz words in the current discussion about "Farming 4.0" or "Smart Farming". The potential offered by digital agriculture is illustrated by the focus day "Farming and Food Technology Trends", which itelligence AG, together with the Technical University OWL and Harting as well as further partners at the 25. September 2019 in Bielefeld.
"Smart farming can support a more productive and sustainable agricultural economy through a more precise and resource efficient approach," says Dr. Jan Regtmeier, Director of Product Management at Harting IT Software Development. Regtmeier presents in Bielefeld the use of "Mica"And their benefits for agriculture. With the Edge Computer, processes and procedures can be completely controlled and all relevant data can be documented. "This creates security for the farmer, but also for the consumer", as Regtmeier explains further.
In two concrete cases Mica collects the data. In the first case, it collects data from two scales on which tractors and trailers are weighed to record the amount of corn delivered. In addition, the tug is uniquely identified to ensure a one-to-one allocation to the arable land. The collected data is processed and sent to the cloud for further evaluation. In the second application, the Mica records data in the critical mashing process. This data is then used for process optimization using data analytics.
"Agricultural data transmission is enabling completely new approaches on how we will ensure sustainable food production today and in the future," explains Dries Guth, Principal Innovation Manager and Head of IoT Innovation Lab at itelligence. Data collected via sensors from the soil, agricultural machinery and even satellite images into intelligent systems not only enable an optimized yield, but also the resource-saving use of water or pesticides. "It's also about exploring new forms of food production, such as urban farming or vertical farming," adds Dries Guth.

Hannover Messe Hall 12, Booth D03, Harting's specialist article at the Hannover Messe 2020 is based on the motto of the industrial show “Industrial Transformation”. In this focus, the technology group under the claim "All for Ethernet" ahead and sets new standards for the industrial network for the networking of technical devices, machines and systems for the 75th anniversary. Other highlights will include new connector solutions, the Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) Industrial Partner Network and other industrial interfaces and configurators.
Logimat Hall 4, Stand D61 Technical Article Users of Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) are finally getting investment security. As Harting announced yesterday, the IEC standards committee SC 48B for connection technology published the IEC 63171-6 standard. The standard interface for industrial SPE applications was thus manifested. The SPE Industrial Partner Network is behind the new standard, which is now freely available.
Logimat Hall 4, Stand D61 The Haning DDD miniature connector from Harting currently covers the miniaturization in robotics and automation technology most consistently. The triple D stands for maximum contact density. Safe signal transmission also takes up little space. This miniature connector has more than doubled the number of contacts compared to the previous standard. The dimensions and electrical properties have remained the same for this version.
The Harting Technology Group and Expleo have signed a IIoT cooperation agreement. Peter Seidenschwang (r.), Head of Industry at Expleo and Philip Harting, CEO Harting, signed the agreement. This confirms long-term cooperation in the area of Internet of Things solutions and data-driven services for industrial customers. Harting offers the modular edge computer Mica designed for industrial applications for industrial applications. Expleo realizes this with its expertise in connectivity, visualization, data analysis and artificial intelligence.
Automobile specialist Rinspeed presents the new concept vehicle "Metrosnap" at CES 2020 in January in Las Vegas. The developer once again relies on the Harting technology group with an individually designed interface that 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.
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, Booth 140 Connector specialist Harting, TE Connectivity, Hirose, Würth Elektronik, Leoni, Murrelektronik and Softing IT Networks are establishing an open partner network for companies with the "SPE Industrial Partner Network" for companies that use Single Pair Ethernet (SPE ) actively promote the rapidly growing IIoT market. This significantly expands the SPE cooperation presented at the Hannover Messe 2019.
