Co-Tron Components, a division of APC Technology Group has been a trusted distributor for Harting since 1988.
The Harting Technology Group is a global leader in supplying connectivity solutions for the three main arteries of industrial technology: data, signals and power. Harting Ltd has been established in the UK for over 30 years, offering products and solutions for electrical, electronic and optical connection, transmission and networking.
Harting is also skilled in manufacturing mechatronics and software creation. The group uses these skills to develop customised solutions and services such as interconnectivity of products for energy and data transmission applications, mechanical engineering, rail technology, wind energy plants, factory automation, broadcast and surveillance technologies.
Energy distribution and storage
Harting supply robust connectors for transmitting data, signals and power. They have a modular design and can be assembled quickly. Connectors can be used to connect low-voltage, medium-voltage and high-power facilities. They can also be used for energy management and the corresponding control systems.
Rail and transportation
Harting's connection technologies provide Ethernet backbones and data infrastructures (e.g. for sensors and passenger information systems). They also specialise in high-power applications, including the interfaces for drive motors.
Wind energy requires reliable connections to ensure power generation and data communication. Harting's connectors are used to combine high-power components in generation facilities. They also provide the data transport and signal transmission required for facility monitoring.
To be suitable for automation, a connection technology must be flexibly expandable, robust and reliable. Harting's standardised connectors and customised interfaces support the modular design of production lines. They make a key contribution to shortening development times, facilitating transportation, and making installation and maintenance both easier and faster.
Harting customised solutions
Understanding that growing and complex markets demand components tailored to specific requirements and applications, Harting have responded by offering tailored solutions and by developing individualised products. They achieve this through custom-designed cable assemblies, providing modified and new products and by working with end-users and their production specialists, to plan the implementation. APC and Co-Tron's own team of specialists can help facilitate with the creation of customised solutions.
