AV Multimedia Selection Guide covers cabling and connectorsHarting's Han Modular series connector inserts enable event installers to create high-density connections and cabling with total signal-handling flexibility – including audio, video, communications, data and power - through different rugged IP65/67 hoods and housings suitable for harsh handling conditions.

Multiple contact style modules can be mixed to suit particular needs. Multi-pin modules can support analogue and digital audio transfer, while multi-way coaxial modules can handle CCTV, SDI, HD-SDI and 3G-SDI video. A full range of power modules allows current handling from a few amps to 200A.

RJ45 data modules enable Cat.5 10/100 Mbit/s, Cat.6e 1 Gbit/s or Cat.6EA 10 Gbit/s Ethernet transfer via Harting patch leads. Signal security between power and data lines can be ensured where necessary through EMC screening options or by the use of SC fibre-optic modules.

The optional Harting hoods and housings accommodating such inserts include the Han B series, utilising rugged Han Easy Lock levers with versions available in anti-reflective black finish. A Han Easy hood design allows side access for easier wiring.

Innovative Han-Yellock products enable single-handed pushbutton mating, which is particularly useful for connections made in areas where access is restricted. The sleek shape, along with the internal locking system, supports cable trunking 'drag-through'.

The Han-Eco series provides a lightweight but robust package, suitable for portable equipment.

All these designs offer integral protective earthing, ensuring finger-safe protective handling. A range of cable glands is available, and threaded entry areas can accommodate standard conduit fittings to maintain IP65 if separate mixed cables are used.
