(PresseBox) - The HARTING Technology Group is setting the course for the future with the commissioning of a new inspection robot for inter-car connection systems. "The additional test options means we?re expanding inspection expertise in this area. This is another big step for the HARTING Technology Group that enables us to offer our railway customers a complete solution package," said Christian Schumacher, Managing Director of HARTING Customized Solutions (HCS), at the official commissioning of the robot.

Schumacher welcomed some 80 guests in Espelkamp together with Matthias Wiehe, Head of Global Project Engineering. The development means that the HARTING Quality and Technology Center (HQT) will be able to test inter-car cables under realistic conditions in the future. The entire life cycle can be simulated in accordance with the route profile, thus allowing the load of the so-called "jumper cable" to be adjusted and documented.

The investment in this additional testing option completes the service package that HARTING has hitherto been able to offer. The core competence of subsidiary HARTING Customized Solutions (HCS) has long consisted of expert advice, conceptional design and the selection of the right components according to the latest railway standards, as well as the production of complete inter-car systems. "This investment gets us ?fit? for the future. We can support our customers even more effectively in engineering thanks to our many years of experience and outstanding testing capabilities. This saves them time and money. We can provide complete support from design through the final release and production of the inter-car systems," Wiehe adds.

During guided tours through the HARTING plants in Espelkamp and an in-house exhibition, participants and trade journalists familiarised themselves with production capabilities and the Quality and Technology Centre (HQT) of HARTING.

Compact and secure connections for railway

HARTING has specialised in the railway sector for years and offers a wide range of products and solutions. In order to save energy and make optimum use of available space, the company?s developers in rail vehicle engineering are always looking for "small" and/or "light" solutions. Even somewhat inconspicuous components such as connectors attract attention ? because even connectors can make a significant contribution over the long term towards reducing rail vehicle operating costs.



Consequently, HARTING introduced the Hannnectors for the control cabinet, through to protection class IP65, resistance to jets of water, and all the way to contact inserts for interference-proof data transmission (shielding).

In addition, the developers at HARTING have taken particular account of users'' needs for limited stockpiling. The number of minimum components to be used has been kept as low as possible.

The new plastic connectors clearly undercut the dimensions of the hitherto smallest rectangle connector in the industry sector, Hanhich are equipped with different coloured elements for error-free coding.

Compliance with relevant railway standards

Railway standards require that protectors provide trouble-free transmission even in environments subject to heavy-duty stresses and loads. For connector use, this means that the transmission of data and signals must be protected effectively against electrical and magnetic interference. The Han

Due to its modularity and the large variety of inserts, the Han

Advantages at a glance

Space savings of up to 30%: compact connector for traffic engineering

Versatile deployment: transmission of data, signals and power with up to twelve contacts

High flexibility: modular system of inserts and accessories for indoor and outdoor applications (IP20/IP65)

Reduced installation time: fast connection setup with snap-in technology, no screws required

Minimal components stocking: clearly structured connector system based on a few basic elements

Cost reduction due to lighter connectors and shorter installation times.

The HARTING Technology Group is one of the world''s leading providers of industrial connection technology for the three lifelines of Data, Signal and Power and has 14 production plants and 44 sales companies. Moreover, the company also produces retail checkout systems, electromagnetic actuators for automotive and industrial series use, charging equipment for electric vehicles, as well as hardware and software for customers and applications in automation technology, mechanical and plant engineering, robotics and transportation engineering. In the 2017/18 business year, some 5,000 employees generated sales of EUR 762 million.
