Harting is adding a new industrial connector hood with an integrated cable gland to the Han 3A series. The new hood has been developed to aid the integration of data and power interfaces in the industrial environment - and in particular, the need for patch cables to be integrated into industrial connector assemblies. The integrated cable gland also helps to reduce inventory levels.
The new Han 3A hood combines a robust metal housing with a compact design whose dimensions are optimised for compatibility with data communications interfaces. Harnesses for USB, Firewire and RJ 45 interfaces can be integrated into the connector, which has an overall height that is 25 per cent less than earlier assemblies.
Harting's new hood features a wide clamping range for cable diameters from 5 to 13mm.
