Gigabit connector module supports Ethernet transfer rates in rail applicationsThe Harting Gigabit module - one of the the range of inserts available for the company's Han-Modular industrial connector system - offers Ethernet performance at up to 10 Gbit/s. The new fully shielded module meets Cat 5, Cat 6 and Cat 7 requirements, and is optimised for use in rail applications.
The module is designed for use with stranded wire of 0.08-0.5 mm_ cross-section and cable diameters in the 5-12 mm range. It contains eight easily accessible crimp contacts (four data pairs) for 0.08-0.5 mm_ or AWG 28-20 wire, and every data pair has separate shielding. Larger diameter cable can be clamped using a Harting InduCom crimp or screw-type flange.
The mechanical characteristics are the same as for the proven Han Quintax connector, making it ideally suited to applications with very demanding mechanical requirements including connections between rail vehicles.
The Han-Modular series is a highly versatile, open connector system that allows users to configure connectors to match the needs of particular applications. The new Han GigaBit module supplements the 30 existing modules for handling electrical, optical and pneumatic signals.
