Cable widths up to M25 now compatible with HARTING Han® 3A connectors
Tuesday, January 10, 2017
Elgin, January 2016 – HARTING has expanded the choice of cables that customers can use in its Han® 3A size connectors. The Han® 3A now can be assembled with cable diameters as large as M25 instead of the previous limit of M20. This increase allows the connectors to be configured with any contact insert in the series, including those with higher rated current and bigger cross sections – such as the Han® Q series. The hoods also meet the requirements of protection classes IP 65/67.
The new Han® 3A hood components feature a narrow external geometry overall, terminating in the cable holding area. In the plastic version, the hood is available with a bigger M25 connection, which makes additional types of mounting feasible, for example on control cabinets. For metal Han® 3A, coupling hoods are available in M25 along with the existing housings. Other versions, such as EMC – electrically conductive and M – for stricter corrosion requirements, also are available. The HARTING M25 screwed cable glands for both the plastic and metal 3A size hoods cover a clamping range of 9-18mm.
