The new Harting M12 Power solution is ideal for high power applications, yet features the small footprint of the company’s M12 connector. This is achieved by a standardization and new encoding that saves users both space and interfaces.
Responding to industry needs
The demand for higher energy products with a small footprint in automation has led to the development of new concepts and standards. Harting, for example, has participated in the development of new industry standards to make manufacturer-neutral mating faces a reality. The resulting IEC 61067-2-111 standard is the basis for the company’s M12 Power connector solutions, including this new, universal mating face with L-coding.
Key features and applications
Harting’s new universal mating face achieves 0.75kW of power thanks to its 63V/16A and five-pin L-coding. These features make the unit ideal for small servo motors, field distribution boxes, fieldbus-controlled I/O boxes, power supply devices and valve applications.
Launched at IMTS in Chicago last month, the M12 L-coded is viewed as the future standard equipment connector and is expected to completely replace the application area of the existing M12 A-coded and ⅞-inch solutions.
A leading manufacturer
The new M12 Power solution comes from the bright minds at the Harting Technology Group, and joins the company’s portfolio of connectivity solutions. The family owned, Germany-based operation employs more than 4,000 people globally, with subsidiaries and branch offices in 40 countries, including one in Saint-Laurent, Que.
