Harting, represented in Australia and New Zealand by Soanar - Electronic Component & Supply Chain Solutions introduces a new line of har-speed M12 connectors that meet the demanding requirements stipulated by Cat. 6A.
The M12 cabling systems can now be deployed for higher data performance scenarios.
The new M12 connectors are suitable for applications with high bandwidths in machine and plant engineering that demand rapid and safe data transmission beyond Cat. 5.
Harting’s new connectors are based on the new PAS 61076-2-10x, which defines a uniform mating face for 8-pole M12 connectors.
The new mating face performs two tasks: shielding in the connector area and coding of the mating face, while ensuring failsafe plugging with other 8-pole M12 connectors.
The M12 connectors are available in over moulded variants in different lengths while a crimp connector is provided for on-site assembly.
The new connector face complies with the following requirements:
- Maximum data rates through the configuration of the contacts in conformance with Ethernet technology
- Minimal interaction and perfect shielding through paired shielding of the contacts
- Fault-proof connection through coding of the connector face preventing connection errors with other 8-pole M12 connectors
