Slim connectors have insulation displacement

Harting expands its 12 M12 Slim Design with Harax Quick Connect technology. Harax insulation displacement Quick Connect connectors are slim, field-installable connectors for automation technology.

The new A and D-coded, four-pole M12 Slim Design connectors with Harax Quick Connect are designed to be used in automation when a cable needs to be attached or adapted quickly. The connectors can be rapidly assembled and without the need for special tools, says Harting, for fast and uncomplicated cabling on site.

The two additions also offer the option of tool-free installation thanks to the PushPull locking system, which is supplied as an alternative to the conventional screw locking system.

Harax connection technology and PushPull locking are incorporated into the durable Slim Design housing which has a crimp design. The compact and robust housing allows for high integration density on corresponding devices and withstands torques up to 1.5Nm.

The A and D-coded, four-pole M12 connectors also feature IP65/67 protection and is designed for harsh ambient temperatures of -40 to + 85 degree C. The integrated 360 degree shield of the Slim Design series provides robust protection against EMC influences and allows interference-free transmission, says Harting.

As well as saving space, the M12 connectors resist all environmental influences, claims Harting.

The Harting Technology Group is one of the world’s leading providers of industrial connection technology for the three lifelines of data, signal and power and has 13 production plants and branches in 44 countries. Harting also produces retail checkout systems, electromagnetic actuators for automotive and industrial series use, charging equipment for electric vehicles (EVs), as well as hardware and software for customers and applications in automation technology, mechanical and plant engineering, robotics and transportation engineering.
