Han-Yellock is a new industrial connector series from Harting that is suited for use in stage automation, concert lighting and power-distribution systems.

In addition to offering an IP67-mated degree of protection, the connector features an integrated seat-belt-style latched locking mechanism that ensures damage limitation under harsh handling conditions.

The connector also allows single-handed mating or unmating, making it ideal for fitting in awkward access areas – often the case for theatre installations.

The locking facility is a key function of the Han-Yellock connector.

When locked, the connection is resistant to vibration and shock.

When unmated, a red ring is visible around the perimeter of the locking pushbutton.

When fully mated, this ring disappears as soon as the internally protected stainless-steel springs snap into place, providing audible and visual user feedback.

To prevent accidental opening of the connector, it can be double locked by rotating the pushbutton through 90deg.

The combined hood and carrier-hood design allows cable assemblies to be pulled easily through theatre installation cable trays or trunking.

Another design feature of this connector is the option to use two different insert designs.

The Han-Yellock contact module system offers up to three five-way, finger-proof 20A-rated male crimp contact inserts, which simply snap into place from the mating or termination side of the hood or housing, resulting in reduced installation cost from pre-wired assembly on the cabinet side.

Separate pre-loaded back-to-back female moulded contact elements (multipliers) provide through mating.

The multipliers are also available as bridges in various formats to provide power bus functionality.

User benefits include shorter wiring time with termination of male-only crimp contacts and, thus, lower inventory requirements.

User safety is ensured with finger-safe designed inserts and a housing-integrated crimp or Quicklock termination protected earth (PE) contact that is located in the PE contact chamber.

On the hood or free cable side these modules are recessed, preventing insert damage when they are disconnected.

The other insert option provides a front or rear snap-in adaptor frame that facilitates modules from Harting’s Han-Modular series.

This allows a mixture of data control and power signals within the Han-Yellock connector, enabling it to be used in applications such as winch controllers in theatre automation systems for scenery fly-bar or fly-by-wire controls.
