Optimizing the assembly process

15 May 2019

HARTING’s new Han-Eco B series range now includes plastic housings that are fully compatible with the standard Han B. The rear mounting option for prefabricated cabinet harnesses simplifies the assembly process as the insert side of the wiring harnesses can be easily snapped into the bulkhead mounted housing from the inside of the switch cabinet - rearward, allowing assembly floor optimization. In addition to monoblock inserts from the Han B series, the Han-Modular range can also be used in plug-compatible fashion in the new Han-Eco B series. Hinged or holding frames allow the modules to be integrated into the plastic hoods or housings. Han-Eco B is available in the standard sizes 6B to 24B. Cable gland options include M20, M25, M32, and M40. The variety increases flexibility when it comes to the connection of new machine modules. Subject to cost and quality requirements, designers can choose either a plastic or metal housing. This ensures the downward compatibility of Han-Eco B hoods or housings in production systems. Plastic connectors are easy to install, are resistant to corrosion, and offer flexible assembly options. They are fire resistant to UL94 V0 and weigh about half as much as a connector made from die-cast aluminum.
