August 24, 2017 --- Integral transformers in IP20 protected RJ45 sockets have been in industrial use for a long time now. To give customers the benefits of saving space and mutually compatible Ethernet components to miniaturize their field applications, HARTING launched the M12 Magnetics at HANNOVER MESSE 2017.
A device side M12 socket that stays the same size but already contains the transformer unit required for Ethernet. In the past, transformers and various other electrical components had to be accommodated next to the socket on the circuit board, but are now integrated as part of a design that also simplifies the circuit board layout. Conductor tracks can be made a lot lighter and more direct because they don’t have to be arranged around lots of different components.
