Han GND industrial connectors offer pluggable groundingHarting's new Han GND industrial connectors use an innovative design that makes it possible to execute grounding systems in a pluggable design.

The use of industrial connectors has been well-established in the electrical cabling of machines and systems for many years, offering the advantages of quick and error-free commissioning. Until now, however, grounding lines for potential equalisation have normally been permanently connected, which is a relatively time-consuming process that can be subject to errors.

Harting's solution to this problem is to provide a pluggable ground connection using the Han GND. This single-pole connector in a robust IP65 plastic housing is designed for stranded wires from 10-35mm2, and is optionally available with crimp or axial screw terminations; the latter has the advantage that the lines can be connected without a special tool. A simple screwdriver is all it takes to achieve a quick and reliable connection. Extra connector mating security can be provided by means of additional locking elements that prevent unintentional opening.

The Han GND features a narrow, space-saving design with an economical plastic housing.
