Harting is introducing the Han 1A, which is significantly smaller than the company's previous smallest rectangular industrial connector, the Han 3A. To achieve all the benefits of a modern network, users need the optimum connector: the Han 1A adapts to the requirements of an ever-shrinking device world.
Despite its small dimensions, the connector offers many advantages for industrial applications. Thanks to the simple 'Click & Mate' principle, users also save valuable working time during assembly.
The new interface uses black plastic housings and can be equipped with colour coding. The interface requires very little space and is highly versatile, since it integrates contacts for data, power and signal transmission. Additionally, the versatile connection technology is suitable for both on-site installation (screw contacts) as well as for the pre-assembly of separate units (crimp contacts). The combination of a few basic elements results in simple and efficient interfaces for mechanical engineering, automation, robotics, medical, energy and traffic engineering.
Typical uses of the Han 1A include applications in which drives, sensors or other devices must be supplied with power and communications. In mechanical engineering, this connector is a good option when it comes to efficiently connecting tools and smaller machine modules such as heating and cooling units, fans, control terminals, lighting systems, drives and vibration conveyors. The Han 1A is also suitable for use in traffic engineering, while door drives, entry systems, lighting, loudspeakers, screens, display panels, signal generators and much more can all be supplied by this new lightweight connector.
The system is also versatile when it comes to protection against dust and water. Only two components are required to quickly assemble an IP20 connector for use in protected areas such as the spars of machines and supply ducts. However, housing elements and/or single-wire sealing mats create a water- and dust-proof IP65 connection that can be used in applications requiring greater protection, such as grippers and other robotic tools in harsh industrial environments.
