Harting, the global technology leader in industrial and device connectivity, unveiled a series of new educational tools at EDS 2015 last month. The new tools are designed to make it easier and faster for engineers to determine the right solution for their applications.
HARTING U, one of the new tools, is a free, web-based information portal that will help inform engineers, including students, about products, concepts and trends relevant to their needs. It will be a single source for white papers, FAQs, tutorial videos, best practices, technical articles, case studies, customer testimonials, apps and press information.
“HARTING U will provide tools to help the engineers better inform themselves when choosing a connector solutions provider,“ Jon DeSouza, president and CEO of Harting, Inc. of North America, says. “It offers free, no-hassle access to industry-related content of interest to them. We’re committed to updating that content and adding much more in the months and years to come. We intend for HARTING U to be the go-to educational resource for industry.”
Harting also unveiled a new Knowledge Centre app that streamlines the search process for finding solutions and other information available from Harting. The new app complements the Han configurator app, which Harting North America unveiled last year that helps customers design their own custom industrial connector from standard components in Harting’s world-leading Han lineup.
Harting is also expanding its presence at major North American trade shows like IMTS 2016 with a new two-storey booth. And later this year, its new roadshow truck will begin touring the U.S. and Canada as a support tool for assisting customers and distributors.
Harting also announced its annual North American distributor awards, with the headline Distinguished Award for Distributor of the Year going to Mouser Electronics for the second consecutive year. Mouser was honoured for achieving significant revenue growth, exceptional commitment to inventory, and for overall excellence as a partner.
Digi-Key Corp. received the Distinguished Award for New Customer Growth by adding more new customers than any other Harting distributor. Future Electronics, based in Montreal, received the Distinguished Award for New Product Sales Growth, for purchasing a larger volume of new Harting products than any other distributor. That marks the first time a distributor based in Canada has won one of Harting North America’s annual awards.
EDS is the premier North American trade event for the international electronics industry, and serves as a showcase for Harting’s newest component innovations for industrial and device connectivity.
