Feb. 16, 2018 – Harting says its new Han-Modular surge protection modules make it possible to move surge protection into its most widely used industrial connector series, while simplifying wiring arrangements.
The new surge protection (SP) modules for the Han-Modular lineup aims to help reduce the number of operating faults, increase the service life of the production line, and increase production uptime for better plant operating performance, says the company. SP Modules are among new smart Han products designed to add new functionality and configuration possibilities to the Han-Modular lineup, suitable for conventional manufacturing or Industry 4.0 production concepts. There are two types of SP module: A two-channel version for differential signals and four-channel type for signals with common reference potential. Each can transmit nominal 24VDC and up to 0.5 A. The protection level is approximately 50V depending on the type, says Harting.
