Electronic components distributor Heilind Electronics (Wilmington, Mass.) is now offering Harting Technology’s Han 1A connector system for engineering and robotics applications involving small drives, sensors, actuators and devices. The series, which includes rectangular connectors, housings and inserts, is universally deployable for Industry 4.0 applications.
The Han 1A system is designed to help users build their own connectivity solution using a few standard parts. The a la carte configuration uses modular inserts for data, signal and power transmission, while accommodating a variety of wire terminations, locking mechanisms, strain reliefs and mounting methods. Ultimately, this may translate into reduced inventory and costs.
The new Han 1A system features a simplified click-and-mate design for tool-free assembly. It also uses 30% less space than the Han 3 series, previously Harting’s smallest offering in its Han industrial line. While it offers miniaturization, the Han 1A connector system requires only a few additional components to create an IP65-rated, dust-proof solution for harsh environments, according to Heilind.
