HARTING’s “smart” Han-Modular® ID connector module enables Industry 4.0 machinery production process improvements

Harting Han-Modular(R) connectors

HARTING is expanding its range of so-called “smart” connectors which can provide identification of key machine components or functional control elements and are also increasingly being deployed for machinery predictive maintenance. Communication can be performed using inexpensive bidirectional systems like the I2C bus, as well as standardised bus systems such as CAN Bus.

Following on from the already established I2C ID module, the new CAN ID module is the latest product in the smart Han® series. Implementation as a Han-Modular® module ensures that identification is flexibly integrated into interfaces which comprehensively supply machines with power, data and signals, in the most optimum space-saving manner possible.
