Rail Live: HARTING solutions for Rail trends on Data Increase, Weight Reduction and Easy Handling. 

HARTING Technology group is focusing development efforts on Digitisation, RFID for Asset Tracking, Fast Data Transfer, robust and reliable interconnections combined with weight reduction.

Digitisation of the railway sector has picked up steam, and cable-based communication in rail vehicles is growing in response to WiFi usage, passenger information systems and additional sensors and assemblies for electronic monitoring and control. The growing volume of data is becoming increasingly important for the various players in the railway sector.

In order to meet the need for communication on board trains, rail vehicles need powerful networks and interfaces that fit the specific requirements on the rail market. Another important factor is a high transmission speed: railway operators have decided on Cat. 7A as a future standard. This allows transmission in the frequency range up to 1,000 MHz.
