HARTING offers expanded preLink® family to provide cable termination technology with enhanced reliability

HARTING has extended its preLink® pre-wired connector system with a number of additional components that allow easy, quick and reliable installation under extreme environmental conditions.

preLink® offers a robust and installer-friendly connection technology that is equally suitable for PROFINET communication and Gigabit requirements in industrial applications. Wiring is greatly simplified by using the preLink® terminal block, which accommodates up to eight wires and is connected in a single operation involving the preLink® assembly tool. This simple and very fast installation process is identical for all preLink® products.

Feedback from the assembly tool confirms to the installer that assembly has been properly performed – making the preLink® installation process error-free.

In addition to the existing preLink® RJ45 jacks, HARTING has added the preLink® RJ45 connector in IP20 design and the Han PushPull® connector for V.14 (PROFINET and AIDA compliant). The preLink® RJ45 connectors in IP20 are exceptionally well suited for connections from field devices such as data-collection terminals, controllers and wireless access points.

The preLink® range is supplemented by D-coded M12 connectors for Fast Ethernet (100 Mbit/s) and X-coded M12 connectors for Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gbit/s.

The HARTING Group develops, manufactures and distributes electrical and electronic connectors, network components, pre-assembled system cables, and backplane assemblies. These products are capable of withstanding the harshest demands in industrial environments and provide high data rates for electronic applications.

HARTING connectors and network components are used in mechanical engineering and plant manufacturing, in automation systems, energy generation and distribution, and in electronic and telecommunication markets. Industrial connectors are also vital in construction machinery, rail vehicles and shipbuilding. HARTING offers Ethernet network components and cable systems for both indoor and outdoor networking applications involving power and data.

HARTING today employs a workforce of more than 3500 in 37 countries. For further information visit www.HARTING.co.uk
