Harting’s new Han HMC is the first rectangular connector designed to deliver robust, consistently reliable performance through 10,000 mating cycles or more.
Optimized for signal and power, the Han HMC is ideal for applications in the medical sector, laboratories and engineering testing facilities, where devices and machines are often disconnected and reconnected several times a day. For measurement and testing systems, each test step may entail one mating cycle. The Han HMC also suits modular machine construction and automatic tooling systems, where there is a need for electrical interfaces that can be plugged in and disconnected over and over again, without incurring significant wear and tear.
Han HMC connectors are specially enhanced versions of the tried and true Han industrial connectors, so any device or machine that can use a Han connector can switch to the same size Han HMC without modification. The complete Han HMC series consists of Han B HMC housings (sizes 10, 16 and 24), inserts with crimp connections, gold-coated crimp contacts with constant spring force, a choice of different docking frames, as well as Han-Modular modules that have Han HMC crimp contacts. All Han HMC inserts contain high-performance grounding contacts. These special properties assure the complete connector’s flawless performance, even beyond 10,000 mating cycles.
It’s no surprise that this innovation comes out of the Harting Group, a global leader in connectivity solutions, employing more than 4,000 people globally with subsidiaries and branch offices in 40 countries. The company invented the modular connector and is the world's leading manufacturer of heavy-duty connectors. The Harting portfolio of connectivity solutions focuses on multiple levels, from the machine to the device and into the communication infrastructure. Harting invests six per cent of sales in R&D to develop intelligent, high-performance, robust solutions that are easy to work with.
