Cable widths up to M25 now compatible with Harting Han 3 A connectors
January 26, 2017 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Jan. 26, 2017 – Harting says it has expanded the choice of cables customers can use in its Han 3 A size connectors.
The Han 3 A now can be assembled with cable diameters as large as M25 instead of the previous limit of M20, says Harting, explaining that this increase allows the connectors to be configured with any contact insert in the series, including those with higher rated current and bigger cross sections, such as the Han Q series. The hoods also meet the requirements of protection classes IP65/67. The new Han 3 A hood components feature a narrow external geometry overall, terminating in the cable holding area. In the plastic version, the hood is available with a bigger M25 connection, which makes additional types of mounting feasible. For metal Han 3 A, coupling hoods are available in M25 along with the existing housings.
