Harting releases ‘hinged frame plus’ Han-Modular frame
August 27, 2017 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Aug. 27, 2017 – With the introduction of a new spring-loaded frame to the Han-Modular building block system, Harting says it is making it even easier and faster to create a modular connector that fits each application.
The Han-Modular lineup now includes over 100 different modules for power, data and signal that Harting says can be combined “virtually without limitation.” The new “hinged frame plus” for Han-Modular connectors features an additional stainless steel spring that holds the frame in the open position during assembly so modules can be fitted into their proper position, enabling “faster assembly, and time and labour savings.” All module positions (A to F) can be seen at a glance, says Harting, noting that an additional marking – a black triangle – indicates the orientation for proper insertion of modules into the frame. Upon locking, there is a “click” and the spring holds the frame together, dispensing with the locking tab used in the past.
