HARTING’s solutions future-proof machine building

The machine building sector continues to evolve quickly as new manufacturing machinery becomes ever more intelligent and adaptable to meet the demands of industries. At HARTING, we are constantly refining and updating our product range to keep pace with the latest developments.

Using connectors in switch cabinets was, until recently, a complex challenge which required substantial effort. However, using the Han-Eco® B, you can now pre-assemble and rear mount the inserts into the housing from the rear, rather than the traditional method of installing cables through the bulkhead before assembling the contact inserts. This method not only saves time and money, it also gives you the flexibility to pre-assemble the switch cabinet units and cable harnesses separately.

Choice is the key benefit of the Han-Modular® range; with a portfolio of over 100 different inserts, you can create and produce a bespoke connector for your specific applications. Using our online configurator tool, simply select three inputs (contacts, voltage and current) to generate the first possible solution. You’ll benefit from an onscreen 3D visualisation of the current configuration and you can download all documentation, including STP files, with a single click.

Another key trend within machine building is that of miniaturisation. As machinery and equipment becomes more compact and complex, connectors take up more of the available space. HARTING has recognised and responded to this issue by producing the Han® 1A, a compact interface which requires up to 30% less space than the Han® 3A.

Much like the PushPull, it employs a system of modular inserts, making it extremely versatile. As a plug-in connection consisting of a maximum of twelve different contacts, it provides an efficient solution for connecting tools and smaller machine modules such as heating and cooling units, fans, control terminals, drives and vibration conveyors.

Whilst it’s vital to keep pace with changing industry developments, the reliability of new products is of key importance. By undertaking rigorous testing, users can rely on powerful and proven systems that are designed precisely for their applications.
