Northampton, England: Harting’s flexible coding system for D-Sub miniature connectors prevents cable connections from being connected to the wrong port in an I/O front panel (see the figure). Its 36 different variants can be adapted to all D-Sub miniature series with housing type E. Customers using an adapted Harting service tool can install the system. Or, it can be delivered fully assembled.
The system is compatible with the standard D-Sub nine-pole, D-Sub high-density 15-pole, and D-Sub mixed 2W2-2W2C-5W1 configurations. It can be attached to existing front panels using two female connector screws without any special modifications. On the cable side, the coding frame and the standard cable connector are compatible with the Harting Inducom metal hood series.
