Expanded circular connector family meets the growing demands of the railway sector
HARTING has expanded its family of M12 PushPull circular connectors with a number of new versions designed to meet the growing needs of today’s railway sector.
The railway transportation market is continuing to grow steadily, both for long-distance travel and for urban area rail networks. Trains are also being equipped with modern information systems and entertainment media, which calls for on-board electronics with more space-saving solutions.
The new models in the HARTING M12 PushPull connector family meet these requirements by offering new housing and connector configurations. Until now, the M12 PushPull has been offered only in straight male versions with A, D and X coding, but the range has now been rounded out with new housing shapes and female versions.
In keeping with these additions, there will also be a device-side flange socket. Like all new HARTING M12 flange sockets, it is suitable for the M12 PushPull devices but is also reverse compatible with the traditional screw locking connection.
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 permits the distance of the housing door to the switch or switches to be reduced.
