Harting’s product line has expanded again, and its latest addition — the new Han B Snap Cap bulkhead mounted housing — continues the company’s tradition of bringing innovative products to market.
Features and benefits
The Han Snap Cap was designed with protection in mind. It is equipped with a hinged cover, which automatically closes when the connector is removed. This hinged design protects the interior from external influences thanks to the use of a spring, located on the bearing pedestal, which presses the hinged cover against the housing with sufficient pressure. This prevents water spray and dust from entering the interior. In addition, the new bulkhead mounted housing features Han-Easy Lock levers, which are easily closed to provide a good seal.
The housing can be used in both a plugged and unplugged condition. In the plugged condition, such as in combination with a suitable Han B hood, the housing complies with the IP65 protection class. However, in an unplugged condition, the new bulkhead mounted housing meets the requirements of IP44.
Standard sizes are available, ranging from 6B to 24B.
Harting’s Han B connector range, with its housings and inserts, covers the entire range of industrial requirements for professional connection technology. With the addition of the new Han Snap Cap mechanism, the company can expand the options within the Han B range to protect electrically powered applications against external influences, ensuring reliability in even the most extreme conditions.
Indeed, the application possibilities of the new housing with its hinged cover design are endless. They can be used in wind turbines and wind energy systems, cranes and switchgear, trains and trams, for motor connections in areas exposed to water spray, and more.
