Harting's Gigabit module, which is one of the the range of inserts available for the company's Han-Modular industrial connector system, offers Ethernet performance at up to 10Gbit/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 0.08-0.5mm2 cross-section and cable diameters in the 5-12mm range. It contains eight easily accessible crimp contacts (four data pairs) for 0.08-0.5mm2 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.
Mechanical characteristics for the module are the same as for the proven Han Quintax connector, making it suitable for applications with very demanding mechanical requirements, including connections between rail vehicles.
The Han-Modular series is a highly versatile, open connector system that enables 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. Contact Harting for more information.
