HARTING preLink® – installation technology with process reliability

Ha-VIS preLink® system

The basis for reliable data streams is robust and installer-friendly connection technology featuring only a few individual components that can also be installed easily and – above all – very quickly and reliably, also under extreme conditions. This requirements profile from real-world practice led to the concept of the preLink® connector system, which is equally suitable for PROFINET communication and Gigabit requirements.

The wiring area is realized by using the preLink® terminal block, which accommodates up to eight wires and is connected in a single operation involving the preLink® assembly tool. This simple and very fast installation process is identical for all preLink® products. Feedback from the assembly tool assures the installer that assembly has been properly performed – making preLink® error-free as well.

Besides the existing preLink® RJ45 jacks, the preLink® RJ45 connector in IP20 design and the Han PushPull® for V.14 (PROFINET and AIDA compliant) are also available.

preLink® RJ45 connectors in IP20 are exceptionally well suited for connections from devices in the field. Data collection terminals, controllers and wireless access points can be quickly and reliably connected with preLink®. The preLink® range is supplemented by D-coded M12 connectors for Fast Ethernet (100Mbit/s) and X-coded M12 connectors for Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gbit/s.
