The new Han 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 new connector 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 new 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.
As well as connectors, complete cable assemblies will also be available in future, both in standard versions and as customised versions for particular applications.
