RS Components adds Harting rapid termination to connection portfolio
Distributor, RS Components, has added the Han ES Press series of connectors to its portfolio. The series provides rapid termination across a selection of industrial applications, says the company, such as machinery and robotics, energy, transportation, automation, broadcast and entertainment.
The series includes multi-functional connectors that employ plug-in jumper technology for rapid termination without tools, to save assembly time and increase process reliability, claims the company. Termination of the conductor is based on cage clamp technology, which allows the simple, quick and vibration-proof assembly of conductors, with or without ferrules.
Zero insertion force (ZIF) capability allows conductors to be pushed into the contact cavities, which can be closed with light finger pressure on the device’s blue press button. There is also an audible and tactile snap-in for the press buttons and plug-in jumpers.
The series also provides plug-in jumpers, enabling multiple contacts to be bridged directly at the connector. This allows for rapid reconfiguration, as well as bridging star and delta circuits. All jumpers are plug-compatible with the company’s Han E, Han ES and Han ESS families and are available in red, blue and black.
Available in six-, 10-, 16- and 24-contact variations, they also feature an integrated opening for use with a measuring probe, current ratings of up to 16A at 500V with 6kV impulse voltage, and a minimum of 500 mating cycles.
