HARTING Device Connectivity

HARTING is a privately owned German company with more than 3,000 employees worldwide. HARTINGs connectors are manufactured in accordance to EN ISO 9001 specifications and standards. HARTING Electronics connectors are used in the make-up of circuit boards, railway engineering, fields of packaging, automated assembly, and automation engineering. For multimedia purposes, HARTING connectors provide high attenuation, screening miniaturization, and environmental compatibility. HARTING connectors provide energy generation from both renewable and conventional resources as well as energy transmission and distribution.

RJ Industrial Connectors



HARTING launched the RJ45 connector (plug) for Fast Ethernet onto the market and thus set a new benchmark for industrial Ethernet cabling. The innovative connector is equipped with vibration proof HARAX® insulation displacement connector technology and allows the connection of twisted pair industrial Ethernet cables with solid or stranded wires and a wire-section of up to AWG 22.

The next generation of HARTING RJ Industrial® 10G RJ45 connectors now combines the experiences of 100 000 applications in this global first. Without the use of special tools, this revolutionary design boasts a lockable RJ45 connector with market demands of 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet. It is equipped for all commercially 2 or 4 twisted pair Ethernet cables and allows an 8-pole cable connection with solid or stranded wire section of AWG 27 to AWG 22. A newly developed cable clamp ensures a secure fixing in a range from 4.5 – 9 mm, thereby allowing the connector to be attached to almost all cable types used in the office and the industry, including the usual solid cables installed in buildings. For this reason the HARTING RJ Industrial® 10G RJ45 connector can be used in a wide range of cables and consistently fulfils customer demands for simple, safe and rapid cabling. In particular, the captive cable manager, with the clear circuit plan on the connector, enables optimum and timesaving cabling.

The HARTING RJ Industrial® 10G RJ45 connector suits industrial needs, is robust and lightly constructed, and optimised for use in multi-port sockets. Colour clips for colour coding are optional and if required can be equipped with an RFID chip for saving patch cable-ID and parameters.



From the very beginning, HARTING saw it as their task to set a broad standard for Ethernet in industrial environments through a uniform connector solution. Through its involvement in the PNO (PROFIBUS Nutzerorganisation e.V.), the IAONA (Industrial Automation Open Networking Alliance e.V.), the DKE (Deutsche Kommission Elektrotechnik Elektronik Informationstechnik) and the IEC (International Electrotechnical Committee), HARTING contributed to advancing the specification of industry-standard Ethernet connectors. At the beginning of 2003, the PNO decided to use the HARTING solution of the RJ Industrial family as the general concept for PROFInet®.
