Han-Eco connector offers weatherproof seals for outdoor use
The Han-Eco A Outdoor connector is a new variant of Harting’s Han-Eco family. The Han-Eco A connector combines high-performance plastic construction with weatherproof seals for use outdoors. According to Harting, the Han-Eco A connector offers standard A-sized housings for configuring robust and flexible interfaces in demanding environmental conditions.
The benefits of Han-Eco A housings now extend to outdoor use, says Harting, especially the option of fitting pre-assembled inserts to the back of the mounting housing, saving considerable installation time.
Han-Eco A Outdoor seals are made of a different material from industrial housings. The profile and flange gaskets are made of fluorinated rubber (FPM), this material offers outstanding resistance to environmental conditions, claims the company, contributing to the Han-Eco A Outdoor connector’s suitability for outdoor use.
The new version retains all the benefits of the Han-Eco series, says Harting, including ease of installation, corrosion resistance, and flexible assembly options. In particular, the combination of an integral frame and an optional integral cable gland minimises the need for fitting additional components during assembly.
The Harting Group develops, manufactures and distributes electrical and electronic connectors, network components, pre-assembled system cables, and backplane assemblies. Products are capable of withstanding the harshest demands in industrial environments and provide high data rates for electronic applications, says the company. Harting connectors and network components are used in mechanical engineering and plant manufacturing, in automation systems, energy generation and distribution, and in electronic and telecommunication markets. Industrial connectors are also vital in construction machinery, rail vehicles and shipbuilding. Harting offers Ethernet network components and cable systems for both indoor and outdoor networking applications involving power and data.
