This conformity declaration certifies that all existing and new products for Ethernet applications from Harting conform with the requirements for the use of PROFINET. The new products extend the PROFINET Portfolio to include the entire Ha-VIS preLink cabling system, the har-speed M12 Press and Go connector as well as the new X-coded M12 plug.

Ha-VIS preLink creates a modular Ethernet cabling system in which cable and connector are conveniently divided into two independent and continually reusable components.

It makes the PROFINET capable M12 suitable for quick and easy assembly and delivery in all desired lengths. The new X-coded M12, with a transfer rate of Cat. 6A and transfer class EA, constitute the appropriate solution for High-Speed Ethernet applications and is suitable for PROFINET applications. With PROFINET conformity, Harting enables its Industrial Ethernet customers to take a major step on the way to the Smart Factory and thereby to Industry 4.0.e
