Ethernet interfaces added to rangeHarting has expanded its har-port family of service interfaces with RJ45 Ethernet versions complete with patch cables already fitted. As a result, users will no longer need a socket, as would be the case with versions incorporating an RJ45 coupler and separate patch cables.
The new interfaces are available with cable lengths ranging from 0.2m to 5m. They are designed for 1/10 Gbit/s Ethernet, and meet the requirements of transmission category Cat.6/class EA. The har-port product range now covers service interfaces for RJ45 and USB, available as coupler versions or versions with fitted cables. These are complemented by an extensive range of accessories including protective covers and name plates, providing the user with all the conventional interfaces needed for switch cabinets, machines and other applications with easy access from the outside.
Harting has also announced that three products in its range of Fast Track Switches have been approved for use on board ships. Types FTS 3100s-A, FTS 3100-A and FTS 3060-A have been tested and certified to Det Norske Veritas (DNV) requirements. The type approval is granted according to special guidelines that have been developed to meet the needs of international shipping.
Harting's Fast Track Switching is an innovative Ethernet-based switching technology which recognises, prioritises and accelerates precisely those frames that are particularly important for the user in specific automation applications.
