Cable-to-cable housings offer flexibility in industrial interconnectionA new range of Han PushPull cable-to-cable housings from Harting enable flexible IP 65/67 protected cabling configurations for the transmission of energy, data and signals in industrial equipment such as switch cabinets and machines.
The new housings make it possible to use pre-assembled, individually tested system cables and cable length extensions on site. Cables can easily be adapted to fit a particular requirement, and the risk of errors that can occur with untrained staff carrying out on-site assembly is minimised.
If an existing tested system cable that has been pre-assembled in the works is not enough for cabling the plant, the appropriate additional extension cable can be used to ensure that plant cabling is completed to requirements and using optimal lengths. This means that users obtain factory-tested system cables with a functional guarantee, along with the required freedom for on-site cabling.
The housings can be used for Industrial Ethernet communications and power transmission with the appropriate contact inserts fitted to the Han PushPull family variant 4 (to IEC 61076-3-103) and 14 (to IEC 61076-3-1117). A bandwidth of up to 10 Gbit/s can be achieved with a reliable AWG 22-27 conductor cross section for the transmission of Industrial Ethernet. For power transmission, using five contacts, up to 690 V and 16 A can be carried with a conductor cross-section measuring up to 2.5 mm".
In terms of connection technology, contact inserts, tool-free insulation displacement connections, Han-Quick Lock quick connection technology and tried and tested crimp connection technology are also available.
