Harting has expanded its Han Eco industrial connector series with a range of plastic housings that includes a variant designed for outdoor applications.
The connector housings – in glass fibre reinforced high-performance plastic – give the benefits of reduced weight and improved cost/performance ratio. They are designed to combine outstanding mechanical properties and excellent resistance to environmental factors, and in comparison with the company’s Han B standard series they also provide greater contact density through an additional module space.
For outdoor applications, the new variant uses flange gaskets with fluorine rubber (FPM) as the sealing material. FPM provides excellent resistance to the effects of the weather, especially UV radiation, ozone pollution and high temperatures.
