A broad line-up in industries, markets and regions are responsible for these positive economic reports, according to Harting. The company intends to continue to master future challenges with high-performance connectivity solutions for industrial transformation. In addition to the expected high inflation rate, these hurdles include factors such as delivery bottlenecks due to material shortages, fragile supply chains, rising energy prices and the significant commitment to the energy transition. The corona pandemic will also continue to have an impact on market and corporate events.
Megatrends, IIoT, energy transition and collaborative engineering
The various business areas of the Harting Technology Group have focused on various trending topics over the past few months. Under the heading “All for Energy”, the company addresses the energy transition in the form of fast and secure scaling of energy storage systems. “All for Railway”, on the other hand, aims at important trends in the railway sector: The transmission of higher currents and voltages as well as a reduction in CO2 by reducing the weight of rail vehicles.
As one of the initiators of the “SPE Industrial Partner Network”, Harting continues to rely on the new global infrastructure standard for the digitalization of industry with “Single Pair Ethernet” (SPE). This new type of data transmission for industrial automation - only one pair of wires and less weight with higher performance at the same time - is aimed at use in the area of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). SPE enables a barrier-free connection between the field level and the cloud.
