Harting’s Ha-VIS preLink is an Ethernet cabling system for the full gamut of industrial applications. It is based on the simplicity of a termination block the user wires separately, then snaps securely into any one of seven mating profiles — RJ45, PushPull RJ45, M12 D-coded, M12 X-coded, RJ45 Harting Industrial Form Factor, RJ45 Keystone and a preLink extender for cable extensions and transitions, solid-stranded.
Cabling with Ha-VIS preLink is extremely fast and simple — a single operation whatever the intended mating profile. Wires are inserted into the preLink termination block according to their colour codes. A special preLink crimping tool ensures the wires are always assembled precisely and correctly. The cable is terminated and extra wire trimmed in one step. When the wired termination block is snapped into place in the connector, it becomes an integral part of that unit, not a separate interface.
Harting’s preLink system is particularly well suited for installations in cramped spaces or junction boxes. Pre-assembled cable segments can be swapped out quickly during maintenance and upgrades. It also offers users a unique opportunity for future-proofing because an eight-wire cable can be terminated even for use in a four-wire format. When the time comes to upgrade, like switching from fast to Gigabit Ethernet, there is no need to re-terminate. The wired termination block can be moved from a four-pole D-coded M12 to an eight-pole X-coded M12 housing in seconds. Until that day comes, the unused pairs are shielded to prevent cross-talk.
The Harting Technology Group employs more than 4,000 people globally, with subsidiaries and branch offices in 40 countries, including one in Saint-Laurent, Que. With production facilities in Europe, Asia and the U.S., the Harting portfolio of connectivity solutions focuses on multiple levels — from the machine to the device and into the communication infrastructure.
