Company overview

HARTING Ltd has been established in the UK for 40 years and is a leading supplier of connectivity technology for the three lifelines of data, signals and power.

HARTING develops and manufactures products for electrical, electronic and optical connection, transmission and networking and have built strong working relationships across the rail transportation market.

They’ve recently added some new developments to their market-leading range of products, including high-current interfaces for the exterior of rail vehicles which are simple to install, durable and easy to maintain.

For example, the Han® HPR VarioShell is a flexible housing for inter-car connections which simplifies assembly and allows quick access for maintenance and repair. For cable-based power supply in the underfloor area, the Han® HPR TrainPowerLine saves weight, simplifies handling and reduces working time thanks to pre-assembly. In addition, HARTING have devised a durable, pluggable solution with the High-Performance Transformer Connector, whose housings have been designed according to the HPR standard.

Other innovations include the circular M12 PushPull, which combines compact design with tool-free installation, Han® Eco B, a lightweight and energy efficient polyamide connector and Han® 1A, a compact, modular solution which can integrate contacts for data, signals and power. Both Han® product ranges comply with standard EN 45545-2 for fire protection on railway vehicles.

HARTING have also embraced the trend of miniaturisation, manufacturing board-to-board and wire-to-board connectivity, including innovations for Single Pair Ethernet (SPE).

In addition, HARTING Customised Solutions (HCS), based at their Northampton production facility, combines market-leading products with expertise so components can be tailored to specific requirements and applications. They work closely with you and their production specialists to plan, design, test and produce a wide range of bespoke products such as jumper cables, hoods, housings and connectors, which are factory built and 100% electrically tested onsite.
