HARTING has extended its Han® HC 650 range of heavy-duty connectors with a new crimp version that can accommodate cables of up to 240 mm cross-section.
The new connector, which has been specially designed for high-voltage rail applications, requires a force of 13 tons to be applied during assembly. Heat-shrinkable tubing is supplied at the contact end for applications at working voltages up to 4000 V.
The contacts on the crimp version are the same as on the standard axial-screw Han® HC 650 units in order to maintain full compatibility with all existing housings and mounting frames.
The HARTING Group develops, manufactures and distributes electrical and electronic connectors, network components, pre-assembled system cables, and backplane assemblies. These products are capable of withstanding the harshest demands in industrial environments and provide high data rates for electronic applications.
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.
HARTING today employs a workforce of more than 2800 in 25 countries.
