The HARTING Technology Group is expanding its proven PushPull connector series. Its features are outdoor resistant; Miniaturisation for demanding applications with convenient and safe mounting.
Easy to use, well protected and considerably more compact – the HARTING Technology Group is expanding its proven PushPull connector series. The new Mini PushPull represents the waterproof and dustproof version of the ix Industrial® Gbit Ethernet Interface. The perfect choice for fast and reliable data connectivity in demanding industrial environments and applications exposed to the elements.
NEW Mini PushPull ix Industrial®
Introducing new Mini PushPull series, HARTING is now providing the ix Industrial® Ethernet interface for 10 Gbit Ethernet with Cat. 6A performance in a waterproof and dustproof version. Standardised according to IEC/PAS 61076-3-124, the ix Industrial® mating face in the Mini PushPull stands for absolutely reliable transmission performance and optional power supply via PoE/PoE+. With a 30 % shorter housing compared to the proven HARTING PushPull RJ45, users benefit from a miniaturised data interface for demanding applications. PushPull is the preferential device connection technology when it comes to outstanding robustness in combination with simple and process-safe operation in waterproof and dustproof design to IP 65 / IP 67.
Device connectivity with HARTING Mini PushPull ix Industrial®
Compact, robust jacks are available for device integration on the PCB, providing maximum stability with five THR shield contacts. The jacks are available in three different versions:
- horizontal jack
- angled vertical jack
- vertical jack
All jacks are optionally available in the A and B codings for Ethernet and signals. The data contacts are designed as SMD contacts. This allows device manufacturers to process the PCB jacks according to the normal reflow soldering process. The Mini PushPull add-on housing, which fits all matching jacks, is mounted in front of a rectangular mounting cut-out during device integration and connects the PCB jacks providing IP 65 / IP 67 protection to the outside world.
HARTING Mini PushPull ix Industrial® is 30 % shorter than HARTING PushPull RJ45.
With regard to the integration into the control cabinet and in terminal boxes, the portfolio includes PushPull panel feed-throughs in A and B coding. These can be mounted quickly and easily in front of a rectangular mounting cut-out and also meet protection class IP 65 / IP 67 thanks to the integrated seal. Matching dust caps seal unused connectors and device interfaces securely.
Securely-contacted plug connections are the prerequisite for stable network systems.
In order to ensure correct connections also under challenging conditions, PushPull connectors are straight forward and intuitive in their operation. Secure locking is signalled by an audible click, and the connection is released by simply pulling on the ergonomically optimised housing. In order to prevent unintentional disconnection, the removal of the connector can be blocked by way of a security ring.
PushPull connectors are the ideal device connection technology for all industrial electronics devices executed to protection classes IP 65 / IP 67, from sensors to controls and industrial computers.
