HARTING announced the Han M23 Power-Hybrid connector, which permits several types of transmission to be implemented in one connector. A total of 12 contacts are available to connect components to the lifelines of industry – 4 each for signals, power and data.
The hybrid connector permits the shielded connection of measuring instruments, encoders and motors. It is also suitable for applications in other demanding environments, e.g. wind energy.
A selection of housings is offered which matches the contact inserts. There are straight, angled and rotatable hoods, as well as various mounted and coupling housings. This allows the connectors to be adapted to the respective environmental requirements. The integrated strain relief in the hood and coupling housings also protects connections and makes the use of additional components unnecessary.
The contact inserts in the series – 6- to 19-pole – are plug-compatible with most other M23 circular connectors available on the market. The series is particularly comfortable thanks to the Han ComLock locking system and its options for mating/unmating.
