Circular connector meets the growing demands in the railway sector

The railway sector and rail transport markets continue to grow steadily, whether long-distance trains or urban area rail. Trains are also being equipped with ever more modern information technology. HARTING is offering space-saving solutions.

New versions of the M12 PushPull

Whether long-distance trains or trams, technology aboard rolling stock is advancing globally and becoming increasingly complex. More and more systems are housed in the locomotives and carriages, and they need to be wired.

Data volumes are rising as a result of in-house technology, not to mention information systems and entertainment media for travellers.

HARTING is meeting these requirements, and the company is presenting the new versions of the M12 PushPull. Until now, the M12 PushPull has been offered in a straight version with A, D and X coding, with only the male versions available on the market. HARTING has now rounded out this special connector solution with new housing shapes and female versions.

In keeping with these additions, there will also be a device-side flange socket. Like all new HARTING M12 flange sockets, it is suitable for the M12 PushPull but is also reverse compatible with the tried and true screw locking.

In order to alleviate the tight conditions aboard trains where space is at a premium, all M12 PushPull codings are available in an angled housing form. Side cable exit permits the distance of the housing door to the switch or switches to be reduced. Any space savings achievable on board rail vehicles are significant.
