Harting is launching a PCB adaptor for direct board-mounting of the Han Q 12/0 industrial connector. This means that the Han Q 12/0 - which is the Harting connector in the small Han 3 A series with the highest number of pins - now has the option of direct connection to device boards. In addition to the actual PCB adaptor, special versions of the Han Q 12/0 connector's male and female inserts for the PCB adaptor are being introduced.
The PCB adaptor can be installed independently of the connector, which enables it to be pre-mounted according to the pinhole pattern on the board. The male or female insert for the PCB adaptor is installed after the board has been installed in the housing by being mounted on to the PCB and fixed in place on the bulkhead-mounted housing with the fixing screw. Because of the separation of the connector from the PCB adaptor, all 12 contacts and the PE conductor can be used for connection to the PCB.
The adaptor meets the requirements of the DIN EN 61984 standard, with electrical ratings of 7.5A and 250V and a 4kV impulse voltage at pollution degree 3.
Harting says the new PCB adaptor model complements its existing range, which includes adaptors for the Han DD, Han E, Han-Modular and Han Q series of connectors.
