Rapid Locking For Drive Systems
15 January 2013
The new Han(R) X-TEC circular connector from Harting offers a compact, customised solution to interfacing in drive systems for machine-tool and automation applications.
A key feature of the range is a new type of rapid locking mechanism for cable connectors and receptacles. Simply by rotating the black locking ring through 70°, the user locks the whole connector easily and securely, thereby providing protection to IP67 against dust and water.
The connectors are offered with a variety of power and signal connections in both M 23 and M 32 sizes. A broad portfolio of housing designs and sizes, including robust metal types as well as light plastic connectors, are available. To make selection easier, connectors are supplied as a set comprising insert, housing and cable glands for the cable connectors.
