Han® GigaBit module

Han® GigaBit module

Ethernet performance up to 10 Gigabit

The Han-Modular® series manufactured by the HARTING Technology Group is a highly versatile, open connector system. Users can configure “their own” connectors which match the needs of their particular application.

New items are continually being added to the product family. A new Han® GigaBit module supplements the 30 existing modules which handle electrical, optical and gaseous signals. The fully shielded Han® GigaBit has been optimized for industrial and rail applications. It supports Ethernet transfer rates up to 10 Gigabits and meets Cat. 5, Cat. 6 and Cat. 6a requirements.

The modules are designed for 0.08 – 0.5 mm² stranded wire and cable diameters in the 5 - 12 mm range. They contain eight easily accessible crimp contacts (four data pairs) for 0.08 - 0.5 mm² or AWG 28 – AWG 20 wire, and every data pair has separate shielding. Large diameter cable (5 - 12 mm) can be clamped using an InduCom crimp or screw-type flange.

The mechanical characteristics are the same as for the proven Han® Quintax. The Han® GigaBit module is ideal for applications with very demanding mechanical requirements such as connections between railway cars.
