HARTING Introduces Han Gigabit Module Modular Connector

HARTING’s Han Gigabit Module is a matching modular connector. It features signal integrity versus Cat. 6A. Shielding against interference also benefits, as Cat. 7A cables consist of four individually screened wire pairs which are surrounded by another screen braid.

The Han Gigabit module enables Cat. 7A transmission in the train car transition area. The interface is also shock and vibration resistant according to DIN EN 61373, Category II, which makes it suitable for extreme loads in the railway environment. The module already permits the installation of the Ethernet backbone for future facilities, upgrades and conversions of rail vehicles.

HARTING supports flexible data exchange on the train with unmanaged switches and patch cables. In a chain comprised of sensors, antennas, RFID readers and MICA – the latter serves as an Edge computer for filtering, aggregating and compressing the sensor data – ambient data can be recorded wirelessly in the periphery and digitally processed for control purposes. The MICA platform translates the sensor data from the RFID reader and makes it available to other participants in the bus system in filtered form and reduced to the required extent.

HARTING’s open hardware and software platform thus promotes digitisation in various directions: here, the MICA acts as an intermediary between the data protocols of manufacturers of independent systems.
