The intelligent stop point

Cyber physical systems like the intelligent stop point must meet the special requirements of Industrie 4.0. They need to be compact, robust, modular, and quick and easy to use. The required connectors must also meet this challenge. HARTING already offers its customers all necessary connection components for cyber physical systems. The systems are installed in decentralised manner and must be connected to the three lifelines of power, signal and data. This requires scalable solutions for housing connections and internal wiring, depending on the size of the CPS.

HARTING already offers its customers all necessary connection components for cyber physical systems.

Fully in the spirit of modularity, HARTING provides robust PushPull connector solutions with M12, RJ45, USB, power and numerous other plug faces. These solutions create the necessary flexibility for every application of the intelligent stop point. The connector’s role thereby transforms itself from that of a pure installation object to acting as an application-central component. In order to keep the stop as small and space-efficient as possible, connectors from the har-flex®/har-flexicon® families are used inside the housing. These, in combination with the device connections, currently make the unlimited scalability of distributed computing systems possible, and are thus in line with the trend towards miniaturisation.

In brief

  • Modular, quick and simple to use
  • Decentralised communication of machine elements
  • Freely scalable, thanks to a broad product portfolio
  • Robust and industrial-strength
