Combined connector and socket housing saves space

Combined connector and socket housing saves spaceHarting is extending its Han-Yellock industrial connector range with a new combined connector and socket housing that acts, in effect, as a space-saving distribution cabinet. Socket housings are available for sizes 30 and 60, and the design of these aluminium connection boxes matches the appearance of the cable components.

Functionality is based on one and two cable inputs, which are available in metric thread sizes M25, M32 and M40. The new housings also have lateral functional surfaces that can also be used for cable input if required. Harting says that, for the first time, applications requiring a 90deg cable duct or locating the housing in an angled space can be accommodated comfortably.

As with all Han-Yellock components, this user-friendly wiring system is designed for simple and rapid assembly. Both the socket housing and the sleeve housing are made up of two parts, making it possible to fit the insulation body from the connector and the socket side without the use of tools. This makes cable management easier and more controlled.

A core feature of Han-Yellock functionality is the availability of contact bridging or additional connection points in the connector. The option to fit a PE busbar in the component base provides a further function which converts the connector and socket housing into a space-saving distribution cabinet.
