Han-Eco series of connectors now with tool-free installationHarting is expanding its Han-Eco series of robust lightweight industrial connectors with a range of monoblock inserts offering higher contact densities and a snap-in function that provides tool-free installation.

The Han-Eco series comprises robust connector housings made of glass-fibre reinforced high-performance plastics. The series has established itself on the market since its launch in 2012 thanks to its ability to offer advantages such as lighter weight and savings in time during assembly and installation. The new monoblock E units, which have been developed primarily for use in housings from the Han-Eco series, retain the proven Han-Eco “click and mate” snap-in function, offering simple tool-free mounting.

A special feature of the new Han-Eco monoblock E inserts is that they achieve up to 67 per cent higher contact density than Han E standard screw inserts of the same size. The inserts feature a pre-leading protective earth contact and a six-fold coding system resulting in contact numbers of 10+PE, 14+PE, 20+PE and 28+PE for the four sizes.

It is also possible to combine a monoblock E insert with modules from the Han-Modular series in a housing from the Han-Eco series or in the Han-Modular docking frame.

The new contacts are based on the proven Han E contacts with screw termination. The monoblock E inserts have a rated voltage of 500 V and a rated current of 16A. The cable connection cross-section is 0.75mm2 (AWG 18) minimum and 2.5mm2 (AWG 14) maximum.
