Innovations for a new era of PCB connectivity and Ethernet connectivity

Connectivity for Future Technologies

Industry 4.0 and IIoT create new requirements for industrial communication. PCBs and Industrial Ethernet face new challenges. The connectivity technology must become smaller, more powerful and more robust. As a leading supplier for decades, we have experience in millions of applications and a brilliant understanding of the requirements that need to be met today. Our web-seminars show you how pioneering new products and strategies will lead PCB connectivity into the future.

In this web-seminar, you will discover:

  • Evolution of industrial ethernet
  • New ethernet interfaces
  • World's first modular PCB connector
  • Smart connectivity

Q&A sessions are included after each session.

Evolution of industrial ethernet

HARTING T1 Industrial - Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) is the groundbreaking communication technology for the establishment of IIoT. SPE transmits data barrier-free from the field level to the cloud. Using just one pair of wires, SPE transmits large amounts of data securely and quickly at speeds of up to 1 GBit/s with ranges of up to 1000 meters.

HARTING T1 Industrial sets IEC 63171-6 interface as the standard for SPE in industrial applications.


New ethernet interfaces

HARTING ix Industrial® Ethernet connector is a reliable interface for device manufacturers. It requires up to 70% less space and is more robust and durable compared to a standard RJ45 solution. With this capabilities the ix Industrial® is a great option to face todays challenges posed by Industry 4.0 and the IoT.

Korea local web-seminar FAQ

1. What is the reason of using cables instead of wireless technology like Wi-Fi or LoRa?

Traditionally, wired networks offered better reliability, stability and robustness than wireless network. 

Mainly because wired networks offer better robustness against network traffic interruptions and are less susceptible to interference than wireless network.

For the commonly use wireless standards: 802.11ac and 802.11n, the maximum speed are 866.7Mb/s and 150Mb/s respectively.

As for a wired Ethernet connection, theoretically, it offers up to 10 Gb/s, if you have a Cat6 cable. However, even the Cat5e ethernet cable is commonly used use supports up to 1 Gb/s. And, unlike with Wireless Wi-Fi, Wired network speed offer better consistency.

With wireless network, the common problem faced are dropped signals, latency and slow speed transmission. But with wired network, these are usually avoided.

Sound like wired network is so much better than Wi-Fi or LoRa. But for requirement of remote monitoring and asset management, wireless communication are usually a better choice for network deployment.

Especially for explosion prone or hazardous applications network deployment, wireless network design are getting popular. Easy and fast set up and can easily allow adding new devices  onto the network.

Due to its fast and ease of setting up, including adding new devices in future. It will be a more tedious set up process for a wired network design.

as compared to a more complicated  wired network design.

2. Is there a gender changer or convertor that can interchange the existing RJ45 Ethernet to SPE?

No, at least not for the now. Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) is a new technology that is different from Multiple Pair Ethernet (MPE) or RJ45 as some know as.

SPE uses different chipset / cable / Connector as compare to MPE.

Thus, we use Ethernet switches / media convertor with SPE function to bridge RJ45 communication.

3. Regarding to the ix industrial® and SPE, are they for different target markets?

ix industrial® is a direct replacement for the traditional RJ45 application where it provide a direct cross over with very good space saving. And this means we only need to change the RJ45 connector to an ix Industrial connector but but the chipset / topology stays the same. It is as well a good solution for application that is base on BUS / D-Sub system for a quick miniaturization upgrade

SPE is an even smaller connector to provide the quantum leap especially for Industrial Engineering. Thought it is at the very beginning adopt for Automobile (car industry) but because of its excellent feature it will be the big game changer for other industry.

4. Do we have any information about the Housing for har-modular®? Is har-modular® only for board to board?

Yes for the start, har-modular® is limited to board to board solution. It is in our plan which in future we will launch cable to board solution.
