Hannover Messe 2022 will be an in-person event this year pushed back to the end of May. I still have not made plans to attend. I love going to Hannover, but it is an expensive trip for a one-person company (and probably just about any media company this year). The last trip I made before the Covid lockdowns in 2020 was to Hannover for the show preview. This year I attended the preview from my office virtually.
Following is news from the preview from The HARTING Technology Group which will be featuring its “Connectivity+” solutions to digitalization and sustainability. According to Christopher Ukatz, Managing Director of HARTING Deutschland GmbH, “This is all about factoring in societal megatrends: Sustainability, (de)globalisation and demographic change, as well as deriving the relevant technology: Modularisation, autonomy and digital twins. Under the umbrella term Connectivity+, products, solutions, services and applications are presented that are aligned with technological and social megatrends and thereby provide answers to the challenges of the future. The fact that this is not a theoretical construct makes the added value focus for customers all the more clearer.”
The focus [at the stand] is on joint brainstorming, dialoguing, and exchanging ideas on the connectivity of the future. Stand visitors can make an appointment in advance. Christopher Ukatz adds: “This is where the discussion on different technology approaches will take place. Customers can take the storyboard created by an industrial designer with them straight away. Our innovators look forward to meeting up with you!”
Topics that are more relevant than ever before, will be on the HARTING stand under the heading of “All for Energy”: Energy efficiency and decarbonisation are both strongly linked to Connectivity+ and this year’s orientation of the Hannover Messe. Control cabinet applications involving the Han Eco and its targeted use as an interface in data centres, as well as transformer or converter applications are the driving forces in this area.
Another exhibit area is dedicated to eMobility topics and shows the complete range of charging infrastructure: From the charging station for home use to the rapid charging station. Also worth a look: the HARTING product portfolio that at work inside a charging station. From PCB connectors to current sensors and network components, HARTING provides solutions that reduce installation times, support modular concept design and elevate safety levels.
In the exhibition area of small connectors for the topics All for Ethernet, All for PCB and 3D MID, the focus will naturally be on Single Pair Ethernet, also a Connectivity+ solution that is both resource-saving and highly efficient at the same time: From sensors to the cloud with just two wires. SPE creates a seamless data infrastructure and unlocks previously hidden optimisation potential in factory automation.
The PushPull locks highlighted and the associated application examples also clearly demonstrate the added value of modern quick-action locks.
