IP 68 protected scalable high-voltage connector up to 3600V

August 14, 2012 // By Julien Happich
The Han HC Individual from Harting is a new product family for universal contact arrangement options. Individually sealed TC350 contacts (protection class IP 68) can be arranged in adjacent configurations of up to 10 connections on one supporting rail.

This interface can be very easily separated thanks to a stainless steel lever system with integrated contact guide. Each individual connection can be assembled separately, and engaged and exchanged individually. Depending on the application demands, the supporting rails can be stacked one above the other to create a high-voltage block with a variety of extension options in the vertical and horizontal planes. The current version is capable of supporting a cable range of between 25 mm² and 120 mm² with up to 350 A rated current and 3600 V rated voltage. All components were subjected to vibration and shock tests pursuant to railway standard IEC 61373 and are in flammability class I2/F2 under NFF 16-101/102. These performance indicators in combination with the individual arrangement options qualify this product family for railway applications involving carriage connections, traction engines and converters.
