PNO Specifies HARTING ix Industrial® as New PROFINET Interface

MC PNO Specifies HARTING ix Industrial as New PROFINET Interface 1 400x275

October 25, 2022

 

The new PNO guideline Profinet Cabling and Interconnection Technology – Guideline for PROFINET Version 5.0 specifies the ix Industrial® mating face as a new standard for Ethernet applications. The guideline was officially published on June 29, 2021, and provides PROFINET users with a reliable set of rules for industrial cabling. Thanks to the ix Industrial® PROFINET are benefitting from an Ethernet interface that is significantly more compact and more robust than previous RJ45 solutions – a path to the miniaturised future.

On June 29, 2021, the PROFINET User Organization (PNO) published the PROFINET Cabling and Interconnection Technology – Guideline for PROFINET Version 5.0 , a new set of rules for PROFINET-compliant cabling in industrial equipment, systems, and plants. The ix Industrial® mating face for Ethernet transmission represents a key new component in the SPC “Specific Passive Components” section. 

Consequently, manufacturers of PROFINET-compliant devices are now able to develop more compact devices on a secure and reliable basis and thereby save valuable installation space in the control cabinet. Given the 70% smaller ix Industrial® device socket compared to known RJ45 connections, the number of ports can be doubled for the same device size or, conversely, a device can be designed that is significantly more compact.

In addition to the miniaturisation and space savings that will become increasingly vital in the future, the HARTING ix Industrial® interface offers device manufacturers and users one thing in particular: A high-performance, reliable, and industrial-grade connector paving the way to the future.

Core properties:

  • •5.000 mating cycles
  • •Robust metallic lock
  • •THR shield contacts
  • •360 degree shielding
  • •Transmission up to 10Gbit/s
  • •PoE/PoE+
  • •70% smaller device socket

Benefits for PROFINET users and manufacturers:

  • •Reliable contact in case of shock and vibration
  • •Fewer contact interruptions
  • •Acoustic feedback during insertion signals secure locking 
  • •Simple, convenient handling excludes accidental loosening
  • •New miniaturisation options
  • •Secure transmission

Depending on the application, users can choose between a straight or an angled cable outlet. This means that even tight spaces in control cabinets will not present any problems. Catering to demanding environments, the ix Industrial® interface will also be available in IP65/67 protected PushPull housings as from the autumn.

Measurement technology manufacturers established on the markets are reliably supporting the ix Industrial® standard with a wide range of measurement technology.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
