New M12 PushPull Variants Address Space-Saving Demands for Train Communication
As the railway sector and rail transport markets continue to grow, trains are being equipped with even more modern information technology resulting in more communication components. HARTING offers space-saving M12 solutions to meet the industry’s demands.
Whether long-distance trains or trams, technology aboard rolling stock is advancing globally and becoming increasingly complex. More and more systems are housed in the locomotives and carriages, and they need to be wired. Data volumes are rising as a result of in-house technology, as well as information systems and entertainment media for travelers.
HARTING is meeting these requirements, and the company has developed new versions of the M12 PushPull. Until now, the M12 PushPull was only offered in a straight version with A, D and X coding, with only the male versions available on the market. HARTING has now rounded out this special connector solution with new housing shapes and female versions.
In keeping with these additions, there is also a device-side flange socket. Like all new HARTING M12 flange sockets, it is suitable for the M12 PushPull but offers the additional benefit reverse compatibility with the tried and true screw locking.
In order to alleviate the tight conditions aboard trains where space is at a premium, all M12 PushPull codings are available in an angled housing form. Side cable exit reduces the distance from the housing door to any switches. Any space savings achievable on board rail vehicles are significant.
