Angled connector can be assembled in limited spaces

Angled geometry means that the new screw-in variants of the Han 3.0A connectors are engineered to be space saving and flat. According to Harting, they are designed for use on machines, control cabinets or terminal boxes.

The external thread on the connector with lock nut supports quick and uncomplicated assembly, says Harting. The angled connector element can be swivelled in all directions for adaptability and can be rotated through 360 degrees.

The new housing components are characterised by a slim external geometry and optionally use a M20 or M25 thread for the connection. The housings are compatible with the existing Han 3.0A series of inserts and meet the requirements of protection classes IP65 and IP67 by using an O-ring flat gasket, which is included in the delivery.

There is a standard grey version in grey, with other variants also available, including an EMV version and a Han M variant for increased corrosion requirements. Only a circular cut is required for assembly. Installation effort is reduced in comparison with the existing mounting variants of the Han 3.0A with rectangular cut-out and a minimum of two mounting holes. A lock nut is supplied to adjust the mating direction, and, if necessary, quickly changed again.
