HARTING M12 Magnetics offers the first transformer and socket in the M12 form factor

 

ELGIN, IL - Transformers in RJ45 sockets have been common for a long time. However, that same technology was not available in the circular M12 form factor with IP65/67 ratings. HARTING's M12 Magnetics product line offers the first transformer and socket in the M12 form factor.

 

In the past, transformers and various other electrical components had to be accommodated next to the socket on the circuit board. They are now integrated as part of a space-saving design that also simplifies the circuit board layout.

 

Conductor tracks can be made a lot lighter and more direct because they don't have to be arranged around many different components, making planning simpler and cheaper. Another benefit is increased reliability. In the past, sockets and transformers made by different manufacturers had to be combined, which could sometimes be problematic.

 

The HARTING solution is a mutually compatible unit providing greater process security. With 10Gbit and max PoE+, M12 Magnetics is the ideal miniaturized interface for power and data.
