Harting has earned a reputation for developing innovative connectivity solutions. Its new Han Pneumatic Module Metal is no exception. With robust metal contacts that can be plugged and unplugged at least 10,000 times, this new addition to the company’s lineup presents another significant cost- and space-saving opportunity to use connectors to streamline flexible production processes with high mating cycles.
The Han Pneumatic Module Metal can withstand pressure up to 10 bars, covering the entire low pressure range. This compares with the company’s existing Han Pneumatic Module with plastic contacts, which has an upper limit of eight bars. With pneumatic modules, users can route compressed air feed through the same connector along with power and signal lines rather than having to set up and maintain a separate compressed air connection for drive units, control units, brakes, holding and unloading units, and much more.
The Pneumatic Module Metal is available in variants with two or three plug slots. The female contacts are available with or without a shut-off function — a spring-loaded valve that closes over an o-ring when the connector is opened, preventing compressed air from escaping.
The Han Pneumatic Module Metal can be employed in a wide range of Harting connector series that take Han-Modular inserts, including Han-Yellock and Han-Eco. It comes from the bright minds at Harting Technology Group, a family owned, Germany-based manufacturer of intelligent and high-performance connection technology. The company employs more than 4,300 people globally, with subsidiaries and branch offices in 40 countries, including a Canadian office in Dorval, Que.
