HARAX® IDC quick connection technology is an ideal solution for the in situ assembly of RJ45 or M8/M12 connectors rated for harsh industrial environments. This revolutionary IDC connection technology is smart, safe and easy to handle: Simply strip the cable insulation and insert the conductors.
For RJ45 the termination is done by closing the connector manually.
For M8/ M12 the connection is accomplished by simply screwing the parts together by hand. This excludes the X-coded version.
Standardized circular connectors with M8, M12 and 7/8“ thread are in widespread use in the installation of machines and systems. HARTING offers a portfolio of field-assembly angled and straight M8, M12 and 7/8” connectors which are attuned to meet all relevant automation requirements. The housings are available as plastic and as metal variant. In addition to the standard circular connectors for sensors/actuators, HARTING is offering standardized circular connectors such as the M12 variants to meet the special requirements of communication technology (Ethernet, Ethernet/IP, PROFINET, Profibus, Devicenet and CAN).
The HARTING product range comprises connectors, ready-to-use patch cables and corresponding accessories. The easy-to-handle HARAX® quick connection technology is available for the in situ assembly of M8 and M12 connectors and does not require the use of special tools. The portfolio of circular connectors is rounded off by the har-speed M12 connector family. The har-speed connectors are optimized for machinery and system applications with high bandwidth as well as for the IP67 infrastructure. HARTING’s comprehensive and user-friendly circular connector range enables cost-effective and quick realization of all wiring and communication tasks in automation projects.

har-speed M12: The innovative solutionWith har-speed M12 HARTING bases the Ethernet network on a sustainable M12 foundation. The har-speed M12 differs significantly from today’s M12 connectors for Ethernet because it is based on a 4-pair connector face with paired shielding. This allows har-speed M12 to be used for Ethernet transfer rates up to 10 Gigabit. The new HARTING har-speed M12 connector is, therefore, capable of complying with the high requirements of the transfer class EA, respectively the Cat. 6A. For the first time an M12 cabling system can be used for relevantly high data performance and permanent sustainability.The har-speed M12 connectors can be optimally used for applications with bandwidths in machine and facility engineering, but also for the IP 67 infrastructure. The basis for the new development is the new PAS 61076-2-10x that defines a uniform connector face for 8-pole M12 connectors.Features:
Cabling with crimp technology
Compact, robust design
Transfer class EA for 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet
AWG 28 to AWG 24
Temperature range -40°C to 85°C
Protection class IP 65 / IP 67
Overmolded versions in different lengths and a crimp connector for the local cabling are the first system components for a comprehensive cabling infrastructure solution by HARTING.
