HARTING offers transformer and socket in M12 factor
December 12, 2018 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
December 12, 2018 – HARTING‘s M12 Magnetics product line offers the first transformer and socket in the M12 form factor with IP65/67 ratings.
In the past, transformers and various other electrical components had to be accommodated next to the socket on the circuit board. They are now integrated as part of a space-saving design that also simplifies the circuit board layout.
With 10Gbit and max PoE+, M12 Magnetics is a miniaturized interface for power and data.
Conductor tracks can be made lighter and more direct because they don’t have to be arranged around many different components, making planning simpler. Another benefit is increased reliability because in the past, sockets and transformers made by different manufacturers had to be combined.
