Harting’s new iPad configurator app — the Industrial Connector Configurator — helps users design a custom, modular connector from standard parts to best suit their application.
By employing this free, interactive, drag-and-drop app to choose the connector model and size (from a select series of popular hoods and housings), as well as all inserts, users can see their custom connector coming together on screen and alter the content and layout. During the selection process, both male and female sides of the connector are displayed. Power, signal, data, pneumatic and blank inserts are available. Once the customized connector has been configured, the app generates a list of specified materials (including part numbers) that can be emailed to the user.
Created by Harting North America, the app makes designing a modular connector a fast, simple task that can be performed whether in the field or in the office. It can assure that when ordering connectors, all part numbers are correct. And that’s not all. Users who want to better understand how much they can save using Harting modular rectangular connectors instead of hard-wired connectors can do it with the app’s Savings Calculator. This feature dynamically displays the cost savings from connectors that accrue over a period of time, from the initial investment through to subsequent installations resulting from shipping, assembling and maintaining the machine or system.
The app is currently only available on iPad, but will be coming to Android platforms soon. It is available for download here.
