RS introduces Harting’s compact industrial Ethernet interface

February 2019 Enclosures, Cabling & Connectors

RS Components has announced availability of the Harting ix Industrial range of Ethernet interfaces. These new devices set a higher standard and respond to the future challenges posed by Industry 4.0 and the IIoT. The innovative interface is perfect for a variety of fields and applications including machinery and robotics, energy, automation, data networks and transportation.

There has been recognition that device interfaces and system cables need to be smaller, more powerful and even more robust. Therefore, Harting has worked in conjunction with Hirose to develop this new technology to deliver the robust ix Industrial miniature Ethernet interface, which has the potential to replace the conventional RJ45 connection.

The unit takes up 70% less space than the RJ45 and is much safer because the two snap-in metal hooks ensure that the receptacle and connector are more securely connected. Data transmission is safe, even in EMC-critical applications, due to the continuous 360° shield design, which guarantees high immunity from interference. Other features include a robust cable attachment, high resistance to shock and vibration, and ability to handle 5000 mating cycles. It is also designed to provide Cat 6A performance for 1/10-Gbit/s Ethernet and is standardised to IEC/PAS 61076-3-124.
