HARTING to introduce integrated connectivity solutions at Hannover Messe

February 13, 2017 --- The HARTING Technology Group continues forging ahead with products and solutions for Integrated Industry. One example – the smart factory called HAII4YOU Factory – proves that Integrated Industry is no longer just a vision for HARTING. The company will be exhibiting its innovations when it attends the Hannover Messe this year (24 to 28 April 2017, Hall 11/Stand C15), demonstrating the benefits of Integrated Industry for customers.

HARTING ix Industrial, HARTING T1 Industrial and M8 D-coded are three of these miniaturised connectivity solutions for the industry of the future. Miss M8ty delivers standardised M8-coded and investment-proof fast Ethernet - from the cloud to the sensor systems out in the field.

Sensors, camera systems and switches are just a few of the components that are being prevented from further miniaturisation - and only because of the limitations of the connection technology. But current developments are addressing not only size but standardisation and digitalisation, too. Even the smallest field components need to be connectable to super-ordinated networks - and speak just a single language: Ethernet. In the past, the problem has been that all Ethernet connectors suitable for IP65/67 environments have been too big, standing in the way of miniaturisation.

Miss M8ty solves this problem: she is the slim and elegant end-to-end Ethernet solution - from the cloud to the smallest sensor. With up to 100Mbits and PoE, the veM8 D-coded provides all consumers with Power and Data via a small interface, doing away with the previous BUS systems.

The PushPull V4 Industrial is made of a new housing material that is also resistant to aggressive chemicals, has a locking system and a more flexible cable connection. Along with further innovative features, this provides users with greater process reliability, making it suitable for demanding application environments. PushPull V4 Industrial – for Power, Signal and Data with a modular construction concept.

Today’s production processes are increasingly modular. Connectors for linking individual modules now have to handle much higher connection cycles than even just a few years ago. HARTING is meeting these increasing demands on device cabling, and will be introducing the modular PushPull V4 Industrial connector with many new features at this year’s Hannover Messe.

The HARTING MICA Energy measuring system will have its first official unveiling at Hannover Messe 2017. MICA Energy enables energy data to be collected from existing machines easily and cost effectively. Data can be introduced to both MICA and proprietary solutions.

Eight partners from the MICA.network will also be presenting their solutions for production digitalisation and IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) at Hannover Messe.

HARTING is already considering further developments for MICA, as evidenced by the visionary miniMICA concept, which has enhanced this year’s “Oasis” concept vehicle from Swiss ideas factory Rinspeed AG to great effect. miniMICA has been given a scalable and flexible architecture, enabling computing elements to be connected in a range of different ways. With the “Oasis”, the driver can customise the pluggable modules and system configuration to the task in hand. Performance and features on demand - see them at work in the “Oasis” on the HARTING Technology Group stand.


HARTING Technology Group is a provider of industrial connection technology for the three lifelines of "Data”, "Signal" and "Power" and has 13 production plants and branches in 43 countries. In addition, the company also produces retail checkout systems, electromagnetic actuators for automotive and industrial series use, as well as hardware and software for customers and applications in automation technology, robotics and transportation engineering.
