Harting has added a CAN (Controller Area Network) module to its range of Han-Modular® ID smart connectors. CAN is a bus system for automation and control which features a number of advantages such as high functional reliability and the ability to operate in demanding and harsh conditions.
The CAN ID module is suitable for industrial applications and supports the standardised DS301 communication profile, which governs how devices exchange data in CAN systems. In addition to features such as status and diagnostic displays and automatic baud rate, an extensive object directory ensures that customers will find sufficient space for their data.
For the future, HARTING’s strategy towards smarter connectors includes an ID module for Industrial Ethernet-based networks, along with integrated sensors and media converters in modular connectors.
