HARTING at InnoTrans 2018

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?

Connectors can make a measurable contribution. By switching from metal to plastic, we have been able to reduce connector housing weight for trams and trains up to 50 % between one generation and the next.

Single pair cabling brings over one-third weight savings compared to previous solutions

In the area of data cabling, considerable weight savings can also be achieved. Single-pair data cables offer a 33 % weight saving compared to the previous four-pair Ethernet cabling.

Easy Handling

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.

The PushPull locking technology saves up to 75% of assembly time

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.

High-speed data transmission in the smallest of space: Han-Modular® Cat. 7A module
High-performance Ethernet cabling: Jumper cable housings and Cat. 7A cable assemblies (EMC shielded)

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.
