Harting has launched the Han-Eco range of high-quality all-plastic industrial connector housings suited to the requirements of theatre and concert tour operators.

The housings are said to combine ruggedness, light weight and reduced costs with versatility, safety and reliability.

The Han-Eco range is said to be an ideal solution for users that require a cost-effective, lightweight product and who do not require the full range of features offered by Harting’s Han B series of connector housings.

The product also offers a higher contact-density/housing-size ratio than the Han B series.

The Han-Eco series is available in sizes 6B, 10B, 16B and 24B.

Depending on size, versions of the bulkhead mounting and hood with straight or angled cable exit can be supplied.

The cable exits are available with metric threading.

Han-Eco housings are made of high-performance plastic that is highly resistant to environmental stress and – in combination with the design – provides good mechanical stability.

When the connector is closed and locked, it provides IP65 protection as defined in DIN EN 60 529.

The material also meets the demanding flammability requirements of UL94 Class V 0.

Fast and simple assembly is enabled with a click-and-mate design, eliminating the need for tools during assembly.

The Han-Eco housing is compatible with the full range of modules from the Harting Han-Modular series of industrial connectors.

One extra module fits into the Han-Eco housing compared with the equivalent product in the Han B Standard series.

This special feature applies to all four sizes.

A protective earth (PE) module has been developed specifically for the Han-Eco housing to hold the protective ground conductor.

Use of the PE module is optional depending on the application.

The Harting series complies with all standards relating to user safety.

All metal parts in the PE system are fully connected to the protective ground conductor.

This prevents the risk of anyone touching live parts if a fault occurs.

The housing is also suitable for use on machines and systems with Class II protective insulation.

To ensure a safe, compliant PE connection, the housings are not compatible with the Han B Standard series.

However, the mounting dimensions of the Han-Eco bulkhead are identical with the mounting dimensions of the Han B Standard series, eliminating the need to modify control cabinet side panels.

The locking lever (locking system with two transverse levers on all sizes) can be mounted on the bulkhead or the hood to suit user needs.

A coupling hood is also available for cable-to-cable applications.
