Harting expands single pair Ethernet range

Harting has launched an expanded range of products to support and boost its Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) infrastructure.

This includes semiconductor PHY chipsets, magnetics, cable and piece part mating cable and pcb connector parts are now available.

The range includes straight vertical PCB mounting female connectors, alongside its right angle ‘letter box’ design. These Through Hole Reflow (THR) parts are fully compatible with HARTING’s M12 range of housings for panel fixing and cable mating. 

The company has been working with TE Connectivity and Hirose on SPE technologies.

Sensors and actuators in the field level are usually connected via proprietary fieldbuses or analogue systems. With SPE, there is now the option to connect these devices with Ethernet over a single twisted pair cable. This saves space, reduces device design costs, removes the need for extra data gateways or converter boxes and simplifies installation.

Meanwhile, installers and integrators can still use industry standard rugged M12 connector mating characteristics that they are familiar with for IP67 protection applications through a range of different length M12-to-M12 patch leads.
