Universal modular industrial connector features 25 different contact inserts

February 14, 2013 // By Julien Happich
With its 25 different contact inserts, the Han-Yellock 10 from Harting can be adapted to a wide range of applications from energy supply to data transmission.

The universal modular design of the connector means that a single unit can reliably transmit power of up to 40A at 690V alongside sensitive data signals, as in Ethernet applications. This universality is extended by the availability of multipole varieties incorporating up to 21 contacts, including inserts for optical data transmission.

The locking mechanism integrated in the housing locks both housing halves reliably during the connection process. Unlocking is a similarly intuitive process. A brief push on the activation button is all that is required. The robust stainless steel locking mechanism is then deactivated, allowing the connector halves to be
separated from each other. The new connector also helps to ensure reliable data transmission by offering a high degree of protection against electromagnetic interference. Large-diameter sheathed cabling is also enabled via an M25
cable input.
