Existing systems can be easily upgradable. Integration of 10 Gbit/s Ethernet in modular connectors. Interface for shielded cables.
The Han® 300 A module is precisely one such modularisation driver, which HARTING has launched this year and is showcasing on the occasion of the "electronica" and "SPS" digital trade fairs. It is reverse compatible with the proven 200 A module and can therefore also be plugged onto this module (whereby the lower rated power is then available). As a result, existing systems can be easily upgraded. The new module is designed in such a way that both direct connections to a busbar and installations in slide-in systems are readily possible. The market requirement for the module to be touch-proof on both the socket and pin sides is also met.
The demand for higher transmission rates is driving the continuous development of data interfaces. This not only applies to office area, but also to the industrial arena, where the advantages of modular interfaces are especially relevant. All common bus systems can be easily adapted, including Profibus, Profinet, CAN, Ethernet Cat. 5, Cat. 6A and Cat. 7A.
Thanks to the M12 module, there is now an additional option of integrating 0 Gbit/s Ethernet into modular connectors. The module enables significant space savings: two D- or X-coded M12 connectors fit into a single module. By comparison with conventional RJ45 solutions, the M12 system is more robust and offers even greater operational reliability.
The new Han® Shielded Power Module offers three power contacts and one PE contact for connecting typical three-phase loads. In addition, there are two signal contacts for temperature monitoring, brakes or similar elements, as well as a generously dimensioned shield transition, which enables EMC-compliant connection of the cable shield directly to the module. This provides an alternative to the fixed wiring of shielded power cables, while at the same time allowing such connections to be made in a common housing alongside other modules of the Han-Modular® series.
