Universal Input Power Connectors Decrease Time to Market and Save Money

To help data centers get online faster, HARTING pioneered connectorized rPDUs and was ask to write the specification for input Power Shelf connectors for the Open Compute Project (OCP).

Here's why: 

  • Ditching hardwired PDUs reduces time to market. 
  • Connecting the input power whip into the powershelf eliminates the requirement of a gPDU.  This eliminates a potential failure point and increases installation efficiency.  
  • This universal design can be used everywhere in the world, increasing supply chain efficiency.
  • Input connectors can be reused when racks are upgraded, enabling quicker replacements with a reduced cost impact and a positive environmental impact.

Lighting Systems are Installed in Seconds and Reduce Reliance on Skilled Labor

Data centers are lowering their time to market by connectorizing their entire system from rack through building management systems.  Lighting is a spot where they have found benefit in replacing hardwired systems with connectorized ones. 

Here's why: 

  • Connectorizing lighting systems  reduces reliance on skilled labor.
  • Lights can be wired in seconds rather than hours with hardwired systems.

Connector for Lighting Systems

Han® 1A: Small, Modular, Lightweight Connector for Smart Lighting

  • Lightweight, plastic connector used for enabling plug-and-play lighting systems
  • Modular design = custom connector using off the shelf components
  • Increases speed of installation
  • Options for power, signal and data

Smaller Network Equipment Leaves More Space for Computing Equipment

RJ45 is bigger than it needs to be! Data centers are choosing higher density network components to make room for more computing equipment with size efficient connectors. 

Here's why: 

  • Standardized alternatives to the RJ45 enable more size-efficient data connections in the same amount of space
  • By increasing the amount of data output, the data center can increase profitability.


Connector for Plug-and-Play Lighting Systems

ix Industrial®

  • 75% smaller than RJ45 enables more data connections in the same amount of space.
  • Robust latching increases reliability and reduces chance of failure. 
  • Uses same cable as RJ45 enabling mix-and-match connector ends.

Connectorizing Building Management Systems Maximizes Efficiency and Speeds Up Installation

Data centers wanting to maximize efficieny are demanding all aspects of the data center, including building management systems (BMS), be plug-and-play. 

Here's why: 

  • Connectorizing BMS systems exponentially speeds up installation.
  • Components can be quickly replaced, eliminating downtime and preventing lost revenue. 
  • Reduces reliance on skilled labor


Connector for BMS

Han-Protect Fused I/O Coupler

  • Modular fuse protection can be accessed on the outside of the panel, simplifying troubleshooting and reducing downtime. 
  • Fast field installation increases speed to market
  • Enables plug-and-play PLC cabinets eliminating labor for cabinet wiring.

Simple and secure scalability of energy from the grid

The consistent implementation of the All Electric Society (AES) requires high current and voltage levels in the smallest of spaces. A corresponding grid infrastructure must be designed in such a way that the energy can be optimally connected, regulated and controlled.

An efficient and reliable infrastructure requires that the energy is optimally distributed. HARTING solutions can help to simplify and secure scalability from the grid.
