HARTING at InnoTrans 2018
Visit us in Hall 12, Stand 203 from September 18th to 21st.
Energy efficiency through weight reduction
Increased energy efficiency and weight reduction feature as major trends in the rail vehicle construction sector. Manufacturers are striving to minimise energy consumption per passenger kilometre. But how do we improve rail vehicle energy efficiency?
Interior fitting work in locomotives and train cars is not always easy given the tight space conditions. Cable ducts and wall ducts are often just as difficult to reach as the interior of control cabinets. If connectors for data technology then have to be assembled with tools, as is usually the case with M12, the connection can be time-consuming. PushPull can help here.
HARTING's PushPull locking technology is already being used successfully in the field of transportation. The tool-free installation signals the correct connection with an audible click and saves up to 75% of assembly time. Assembly and maintenance technicians can also enjoy the advantages of PushPull connectors when dealing with circular connectors.
Increased data transmission
In order to make trains future-proof in terms of communication technology, railway operators have opted for Cat. 7A as the future transmission standard for their vehicles. Compared to its predecessor, the category permits a transmission in higher frequency range.
With the Han® Gigabit module, HARTING has introduced the first modular connector designed for a Cat. 7A transmission category, providing in parallel a 10 Gigabit Ethernet bandwidth. Han-Modular®, in conjunction with the Han® Gigabit module, therefore offers high-speed data transmission in the smallest of space.
A typical application combines the Gigabit interface with jumper and patch cables, including appropriate sub-distribution connections. Switches and switch patch panels are the perfect complement for efficient data distribution in the car. For the connection of the WLAN equipment, suitable x-coded M12 circular connectors from HARTING completes the cable assembly.
