The truck showcases Harting’s industrial and small form industrial connectors, cable assemblies, board level connectors, backplane assemblies, industrial Ethernet switches, and industrial RFID solution. According to company executives, the truck brings Harting one step closer to its goal of “supporting the engineering community with the industry knowledge they need for their daily tasks.”

“Harting is committed to educating the market on new technologies,” said Jon DeSouza, president and CEO of Harting North America. “Engineers need the right tools to better inform themselves when choosing a connector solution — we aren’t here to just sell a product. We want to show what’s out there in the world of industrial connectivity – and help to find the solution that’s right for a specific application.”
“Each customer’s need is different,” added Christina Chatfield, director of marketing communications. “And that’s why the roadshow truck offers a very targeted user-experience through interactive apps and interchangeable product displays. That way the customer can choose what he or she wants to focus on.”
Harting says the truck is an expansion of the educational initiatives it launched last year through its free, web-based portal Harting-U.com. Harting-U is a source for white papers, FAQ’s, tutorial videos, best practices, technical articles, case studies, customer testimonials, apps and press information regarding industrial connectivity.
The yearlong tour started September 18 at Boyce Technologies in New York City, N.Y., and will then continue through Canada and the U.S.
