HARTING T1 Industrial, All for Ethernet and the SPE Industrial Partner Network make for reliable infrastructure solutions / Han S®: Secure connections for modular energy storage
The HARTING Technology Group will be showing off lots of new products and smart solutions at HANNOVER MESSE (20 April to 24 April 2020) again this year (Hall 12 / Stand D3). And the HARTING motto for this year’s HANNOVER MESSE is also “Industrial Transformation”.
The HARTING Technology Group has been a pioneering force for innovation, major standards and industrial milestones for 75 years. The 75th anniversary will be celebrated at numerous events this year. HANNOVER MESSE in April will be the high point of all of these celebrations.
The HARTING Technology Group is leading the way to industrial transformation with the claim “All for Ethernet”, setting new standards for industrial networks. Gaining in importance through the merging of the world of IT and automation, Industrial Ethernet cannot do without a reliable infrastructure fit for industry. HARTING recognised this need early on, creating in RJ Industrial® the first RJ45 interface fit for industrial applications – a milestone and still the most widely used data interface. HARTING continued pursuing the path of constant innovation and serving market needs in 2016 with the ix Industrial® interface for the familiar multi-pair ethernet. The next big step came after that: from ethernet via SPE into the field, for a smart connection of the last network participants to the IIoT.
All T1 Industrial components for your IIoT infrastructure
Published on 23 January 2020, IEC 63171-6 created the basis for all future IIoT networks – and it hasn’t changed. This doesn’t mean that things have stood still, but that there has been ultimate agreement over a market-wide standard for SPE infrastructure, meaning investment security for users. On this basis, a comprehensive portfolio can be developed for the single-pair ethernet market.
Serial parts for the IP20 version of the T1 Industrial interface in the field assembly format in AWG 28-22 and overmoulded AWG 28-22 will be on show for the first time ever at HANNOVER MESSE. HARTING is also presenting the corresponding device socket for a robust and standardised SPE connection with the device. Device developers will get to see the first design-in projects at the fair.
SPE Industrial Partner Network sees strong growth
The SPE Industrial Partner Network has more than doubled its membership in just a few months. Starting with seven founding members, the number rose to 16 after the SPS fair in November 2019. Each company is a technology leader in its own right, specialising in different areas, which it needs to strengthen and complete the SPE ecosystem. This shared common basis creates the international standardisation for SPE infrastructure to IEC 11801-x, IEEE 802.3 and IEC 63171-6, to which all members refer. 2020 is the year of the SPE network. The network will be holding a series of interesting events at this year’s HANNOVER MESSE.
Han S®: secure connections for modular energy storage
The Technology Group has new products for the field of heavy-duty connectors. Han S® is the new secure connection technology for modular battery storage. The compact, flexible housing has room for contacts up to 200 A. The mounting housing is freely rotating and access to the locking mechanism is intuitive. Red for plus and black for minus with additional mechanical coding makes the interfaces interchangeable.
Focus on DC connectors
For 75 years, HARTING has continually set high standards for new industrial interfaces. At present, there is a technologically demanding trend towards DC power transmission in the industrial environment, with significant growth expected for this type of power supply. In order to provide suitable installation technology for these applications, HARTING will be presenting new concepts of DC power transmission at the Hannover Fair 2020. The study of a new DC interface for industrial application will be presented, which is characterised by power and data technology. It transmits voltages up to 800 V as well as currents up to 40 A and cannot be pulled under load. In addition to the working groups of DC Industries, HARTING is also involved in drafting the DKE standards.
The project is the result of a cooperation between HARTING and the Smart Factory KL. At the Hannover Fair, future-oriented studies of the new DC interface at different levels of integration will be shown on the stands of both companies.
Extended customising functions for Han configurator
The Han® configurator for industrial interfaces has a new customising function. It allows users to use the configurator to design individual solutions for cable entry points and apply labels. When configuration is complete, although it is an “individual” product, all design-relevant data is available for download and users can order the customised solution. The new function makes for a continuous process: this goes from design to product development, production phase and assembly, enabling customers to design products easily on their own and have them delivered within a very short time. This makes individual interfaces affordable, even in smaller volumes. The amount of time for designing a new product is reduced, just as it is by the automatic quality inspection of the design. The configurator’s new customisation functions ultimately increase the range of available standards for clients. HARTING is using this technology to increase its product range and will be adding more and more customising functions to the Han® configurator.
Increased cooperation with software developer PerFact
HARTING is pushing forward with the development of new technology. Announced at the SPS fair in Nuremberg in November 2019, the software partnership with PerFact is being expanded. HARTING and PerFact will be issuing more details at HANNOVER MESSE. PerFact develops professional IT solutions for industry. Linking machines via the Internet is a major aspect of remote machine maintenance.
HARTING interface delivers Power, Data, Signal for “metroSNAP”
And the Swiss car maker Rinspeed will be at HANNOVER MESSE again this year. Rinspeed and HARTING are linked by a trust-based partnership going back many years. This year, the Technology Group is providing a specially designed interface to supply the vehicle with Power, Data and Signal. With “metroSNAP”, HARTING and Rinspeed are taking the next step towards mobility concepts of the future. Whether it’s transporting people or goods – the vehicle is highly versatile. The HARTING module helps drivers to configure the vehicle quickly and flexibly for a wide range of tasks.
HARTING Systems showcasing smart SCO solution at the “EuroShop”
“EuroShop“ is the world’s largest trade fair for retailing investment products and systems, and will be taking place from February 16 through to 20, 2020 in Dusseldorf. HARTING Systems, a subsidiary of the HARTING Technology Group will be presenting innovative SCO solutions (self- checkout). The SCO area in grocery retailing is where customers scan their products themselves.
At this year’s trade fair HARTING Systems will be showcasing the HARTING cash desk product range featuring extensively upgraded visual elements. The external design has been consistently updated and impresses with linen-grained stainless steel and polygonal corner plates. The new counter cash desk in combination with an extended tobacco infopoint will also be featuring prominently. In addition to the cash desk from the SmokyThek CS it features wooden paneling integrating the TowerlineShop automatic vending machine. This is especially interesting for retail customers that wish to implement a service point or an information desk, combining personal customer interaction with automated support functionalities.
Worldwide, the guidelines and legislation concerning tobacco products are being increasingly tightened. HARTING has acquired in-depth experience in numerous countries and over many years and provides automated solutions for virtually all dispensing regulations in the individual countries.
This is particularly relevant in connection with “plain package“ issues, where all the brand typical attributes are replaced by uniform design. “The sales process is difficult when all the packages look more or less the same, as Peter Weichert, managing director of HARTING Systems commented. The vending machines offer alphabetic listing in connection with the company’s logo – which helps customers locating “their favoured brand.”
The use of automatic vending machines is also ideal in countries with so-called display bans, meaning that it is not permitted to present tobacco products openly and publically. In such scenarios, automatic vending machines can help minimize such sales disadvantages.
HARTING announced its cooperation with the Norwegian company StrongPoint in February 2019. Over the past months the two companies put their heads together and developed a number of modern self-checkout systems that will be highlighted at the Dusseldorf event.
”The new and innovative systems combine efficiency and security with value creating retailing to optimize the retail space and to ensure even better customer experiences”, says Jacob Tveraabak, CEO of StrongPoint.
The conventional cash desk area that accounts for some 1% of the retail floor space generates around 4 to 7% of sales by impulse purchases and tobacco products. In markets without SCO product offerings these sales are lost entirely.
Powered by the bundled competence of HARTING, as specialist for the storage and dispensing of theft-prone products, and StrongPoint, as expert for self-checkout solutions the SCO system with an integrated vending machine for tobacco products was developed. As Peter Weichert went on to emphasize: “Our new solution is probably the most efficient of its kind in the entire self-checkout market.”
The Espelkamp based company continues to place a strong emphasis on economic efficiency, safety and security. Thanks to the new system retail markets have the option of serving three cash desks simultaneously with a single automatic vending machine. From February 16 to 20, 2020, HARTING Systems will be on location in Hall 13, at stand D62 and will be showcasing exactly what this solution will look like.

A new lease of life for your STUDER machine with a machine overhaul
FRITZ STUDER AG, Motion Meeting Press Event
Anything that works as hard as a cylindrical grinding machine will wear out. This is particularly obvious in the geometry and precision. STUDER doesn’t just support the customer in the purchase of new machines, but can also offer a complete machine overhaul A machine overhaul at STUDER makes an old machine into one that is as good as new; in other words, a machine that has the same tolerances as when it was first delivered.
STUDER has been carrying out machine overhauls for 20 years. Every day, more than 25 employees are involved in giving machines and assemblies a new lease of life. In the supreme discipline of machine overhauls, over 400 machines have been completely overhauled to date. Countless assemblies have also been overhauled. Irrespective of whether machine or assembly, they all have one thing in common: An overhaul at STUDER is carried out by the original manufacturer with its unique knowledge and expertise, and according to the same quality standards as for new machines. At the end the customer gets a product whose quality and precision are comparable to that of a new machine.
Trusted precision and quality
A machine overhaul fully restores the original precision and quality and verifies this by means of a certificate. Changing requirements such as reconfigurations, automation or even digitalization can also be implemented in conjunction with the overhaul.
Thanks to the STUDER quality, the customer receives a new one-year warranty on the overhaul. This also includes ensuring parts availability again. As the machine is ultimately restored to the original condition, an overhaul provides the customer with an outstanding price/performance ratio compared to the former purchase price. STUDER can provide the customer with a specific loan machine for the duration of the machine overhaul if required.
