HARTING’s T1 Industrial wins global electronics award

,

Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) connector recognised for innovation

HARTING’s T1 Industrial has won the award for ‘Passive and Electromechanical Product of the Year’ at the Elektra Awards, held on the 4th December 2019 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
The Elektra Awards recognise companies and individuals for their excellent performance, innovation and contribution to the global electronics industry and winning an award is seen as one of the most prestigious accolades a company or individual can receive.
With the T1, HARTING has established a new technology standard which transmits data via Ethernet at speeds of up to 1 GBit/s with just one pair of wires, making it the perfect solution for Industry 4.0 and the IIoT.
Industry recognition for establishing this new standard highlights the immense potential of the new technology, which can supply both data and power in an IEC 63171-6 industry-standardised interface for Single Pair Ethernet (SPE).
SPE will be one of the key technologies that significantly shape the success of the IIoT. The factory of the future will require high data streams and the industrial sector needs connectivity which adapts itself to increasingly growing demands. The T1 Industrial brings Ethernet from the cloud to every sensor, thus enabling the IIoT.
Commenting on the award, Simon Asbury, Director of Sales and Marketing at HARTING UK, said:
“We’re absolutely delighted that the Elektra Awards have recognised the innovative and visionary nature of the T1 Industrial and Single Pair Ethernet. We’re confident that this new technology standard will help to efficiently deliver the many benefits of Industry 4.0 to our customers and we’re looking forward to working closely with them as we develop further applications and solutions.”

ITSA Joins RoHS Umbrella Industry Project

,

October 2019 — ITSA – Interconnect Technology Suppliers Association has joined the Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment (“RoHS”)* Umbrella Industry Project (“the Umbrella Project”)**.


John Biggs, Chairman of ITSA commented “We are delighted to announce that ITSA has joined the Umbrella Project as part of ITSA´s mission and continued efforts to provide a favourable operating environment for the benefit of interconnect technology companies and a dynamic network for exploring and co-operating on mutually beneficial opportunities. Key to ITSA and its members´ continued success is active participation in unprecedented cross-industry global initiatives and forums, such as the Umbrella Project, which enable participants to have discussions and decide any action or position the global industry wishes to adopt with regard to key matters, and influence current and future changes to standards affecting the global industry, including the continuing technical adaptations of existing Exemptions to the European Union (EU)’s RoHS Directive substance restrictions”

Bodo Eilken, Infineon Technologies & Chair of the Umbrella Project added “The Umbrella Project warmly welcomes ITSA as a new Umbrella Project partnering association. We are excited about the potential of ITSA and its members to contribute to the Umbrella Project´s discussions and work underway. We are looking forward to a fruitful cooperation with ITSA and its member companies in the journey of RoHS Exemptions’ technical adaptations, and beyond”.
Notes:
* The EU’s RoHS Directive sets the benchmark and remains the most prominent sector-specific legislation on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. It has also served as a model for similar laws introduced in multiple jurisdictions around the world and it continues to rapidly evolve, including on-going and forthcoming policy and regulatory developments requiring continued enhanced leadership, engagement and collaboration across the global industry, and beyond.
** The Umbrella Project is an unprecedented cross-industry initiative, currently involving 53 partnering industry associations globally, aimed at fostering cross-industry dialogue on the adaptation to scientific and technical progress of existing Exemptions from the RoHS Directive substance restrictions and global industry alignment on technical substitution possibilities. Where necessary, dialogues result in joint global cross industry applications to the European Commission for renewal of selected existing Exemptions, or parts thereof, under the conditions laid down in the RoHS Directive. Participants in the Umbrella Project have been key contributors to the current Directive, including the continuing Exemptions’ technical adaptations, to everyone´s benefit.
