Connector specialist, Harting has added a new, compact addition called the Han-Yellock 10 to its existing family of modular industrial connectors.

The company advises, the availability of 25 different contact inserts ensure adaptability to a wide range of applications from energy supply to data transmission.

The connectors feature a universal modular design, so in effect a single unit can 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.

Key features of the devices include handling and operation, by which the locking mechanism integrated in the housing locks both housing halves during connection. Unlocking is activated by a brief push on the activation button. The robust stainless steel locking mechanism is then deactivated, allowing the connector halves to beseparated from each other.

The new connector is said to offer a high degree of protection against electromagnetic interference.

This is provided by the nesting of both housing halves and the direct electrical connection between the housing and the adjacent surface.

Large-diameter sheathed cabling is also enabled via an M25 cable input.
