Universal Input Power Connectors Decrease Time to Market and Save Money

To help data centres get online faster, HARTING pioneered connectorised 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 power shelf 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.

Connectors for Rack Power Systems

Power connector for ORV3 rack systems

  • Standardised to the Open Compute Project's Open Rack v3 spec.
  • Rapidly decreases time-to-market
  • HARTING was asked to write the ORV3 power connector specification after our connector was used in Microsoft's Project Olympus.

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

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

Here's why: 

  • Connectorising 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 centres are choosing higher density network components to make room for more computing equipment with size efficient connectors. 

Here's why: 

  • Standardised 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 centre 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.

Connectorising Building Management Systems Maximizes Efficiency and Speeds Up Installation

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

Here's why: 

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


Simplified protection of control cabinets with Han® Protect

Simplified troubleshooting to increase system availability

  • 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

Einfache und sichere Skalierbarkeit der Energie aus dem Netz

Die konsequente Umsetzung der All Electric Society (AES) erfordert höhere Strom- und Spannungslevel auf engstem Raum. Die Netzinfrastruktur muss so ausgelegt sein, dass die Energie optimal verbunden, geregelt und gesteuert werden kann.

Eine effiziente und zuverlässige Infrastruktur setzt voraus, dass die Energie optimal verteilt wird. HARTING Lösungen können helfen, die Skalierbarkeit des Netzes zu vereinfachen.
