Flexible power, signal or Ethernet connections in tight spaces
Harting’s Han 1A connector is designed for power, signal or data transmission via a single compact design format housing. The range comes with angled or straight bulkhead mounting, as well as a panel surface mounted fixing frame for cable-to-cable mating – all achieved through its snap-in latch/lever locking mated plastic IP20/IP65 housings.
The Han 1A can accommodate power (10A to 16A @ 400V), signal (0.5A / 48V to 4A / 250V) and Ethernet data (M12 Cat 5 D-Code or Cat 6A X-Code insert) connection solutions, minimising BOM requirements and allowing lower piece stock costs. It also simplifies interface panel design through one standard panel cut-out. Snap-on colour coding clips allow part differentiation.
Harting says the Han 1A Ethernet data version offers significant advantages over recognised M12 cabling solutions whilst allowing the use of their industry recognised and proven inserts. The inline free or cable to cable mounting frame mating allows the M12 Cat 5 D-Code or Cat 6A X-Code inserts to be mated without the optical alignment concerns of the normal M12 housing connectors. Hence, they offer the benefit of easier handling in tight, difficult to access spaces. This can be particularly beneficial behind thin panels in applications such as train carriage cabling.
Another key advantage, asserts the company, for such transportation applications is that the cable-to-cable housings offer either IP20 snap-in latch or an additionally vibration resistant IP65 lever locked mating solution.
Finally, you get the extra benefit of saving weight per mated pair, thanks to the lightweight plastic housings, thus supporting the reduction of the train’s carbon footprint.
