Harting unveiled the latest addition to its established Han-Yellock(R) family of modular industrial connectors at Southern Manufacturing & Electronics 2013.
The availability of 25 different contact inserts means that the Han-Yellock(R) 10 can be adapted to a wide range of applications from energy supply to data transmission. The universal modular design of the connector means that a single unit can reliably transmit power of up to 40 A at 690 V alongside sensitive data signals, as in Ethernet applications. This universality is extended by the availability of multipole varieties incorporating up to 21 contacts, including inserts for optical data transmission.
The key features of the Han-Yellock(R) family – notably its ease of handling and operation – are embodied in the Han-Yellock(R) 10. The locking mechanism integrated in the housing locks both housing halves reliably during the connection process. Unlocking is a similarly intuitive process. A brief push on the activation button is all that is required. The robust stainless steel locking mechanism is then deactivated, allowing the connector halves to be separated from each other.
The new connector also helps to ensure reliable data transmission by offering a high degree of protection against electromagnetic interference. This is provided in the Han-Yellock(R) family by the nesting of both housing halves and the direct electrical connection between the housing and the adjacent surface. Large-diameter sheathed cabling is also enabled via an M25 cable input.
