Cables and connectors for in-vehicle Ethernet communications

Paul Boughton
Harting is now offering a complete range of interconnectivity products for Ethernet communications networks in road and rail vehicles. A combination of the company's Ha-Vis 4000 range of Ethernet switches and Ha-Vis Etherrail data cables forms the basis for reliable Ethernet networks both within and between vehicles.
In addition, the implementation of redundant networks that are designed to meet the connectivity requirements encountered in buses, trams and trains can be optimised with a combination of supplementary, interactive products - such as Ethernet switches with POE (power over Ethernet), highly flexible data cables compliant with LSZH (low-smoke/zero-halogen) requirements and Harting's wide range of industrial connectors.
Harting's Ha-Vis eCon 4080-BPoE1 eight-port POE switch can be used to implement video networks as an aid to enhancing passenger safety in the driver's cab or at bus/train stops. Highly flexible data cables with four-star construction can be used both as connecting cables at the carriage transitions and for installations in the vehicles, and conforms to current fire regulations to TS EN 45 545-5 for rail and bus vehicles.
