Metal hoods are easy to install on industrial connectorsHarting is launching a new range of metal hoods for Han-Compact industrial connectors that offers a choice of straight or angled cable entry; they are based on a two-piece structure for convenient handling.

The compact hoods are suitable for all contact inserts in the Han-Compact range and include variants with surfaces for standard and EMC applications. The outer threads are moulded onto the hood. The range also includes cost-effective half-cable glands for a range of cable diameters and an IRIS spring for shield termination.

Thanks to the two-piece design of the hood, users can slip the hood element - including the cable gland - onto the cable during assembly. This facilitates speedy installation and rapid wiring of the contacts. The operation is completed by closing the hood element and fastening it with the screws.

A separate earth conductor terminal on the hood enables the use of connectors with higher rated voltages and currents. Connectors suited to use with the new hoods include the Han Q 4/2 with crimp and axial screw termination, the Han Q 8/0 with crimp and Han-Quick Lock termination, the Han Q 17/0 with crimp termination, and the Han Q Data RJ 45.
