The HARTING Technology Group has announced that it is expanding its PushPull connector series.

The Mini PushPull represents the waterproof and dustproof version of the ix Industrial Gbit Ethernet Interface and is intended for fast and reliable data connectivity in industrial environments and applications exposed to the elements.

The series delivers 10 Gbit Ethernet with Cat. 6A performance in a waterproof and dustproof version. Standardised according to IEC/PAS 61076-3-124, it delivers reliable transmission performance and optional power supply via PoE/PoE+.

With a 30% shorter housing compared to current HARTING PushPull RJ45, users benefit from a miniaturised data interface for demanding applications. PushPull is the preferential device connection technology when it comes to robustness in combination with simple and process-safe operation in waterproof and dustproof design to IP 65 / IP 67.

Compact, robust jacks are available for device integration on the PCB, providing maximum stability with five THR shield contacts. The jacks are available in three different versions:

All jacks are optionally available in the A and B codings for Ethernet and signals. The data contacts are designed as SMD contacts, which allows device manufacturers to process the PCB jacks according to the normal reflow soldering process.

The Mini PushPull add-on housing, which fits all matching jacks, is mounted in front of a rectangular mounting cut-out during device integration and connects the PCB jacks providing IP 65 / IP 67 protection to the outside world.

With regard to the integration into the control cabinet and in terminal boxes, the portfolio includes PushPull panel feed-throughs in A and B coding. These can be mounted quickly and easily in front of a rectangular mounting cut-out and also meet protection class IP 65 / IP 67 thanks to the integrated seal. Matching dust caps seal unused connectors and device interfaces securely.

In order to ensure correct connections also under challenging conditions, PushPull connectors are straight forward and intuitive in their operation. Secure locking is signalled by an audible click, and the connection is released by simply pulling on the ergonomically optimised housing. In order to prevent unintentional disconnection, the removal of the connector can be blocked by way of a security ring.

PushPull connectors are designed primarily for industrial electronics devices executed to protection classes IP 65 / IP 67, from sensors to controls and industrial computers.
