HARTING is launching a new Han® B bulkhead mounted housing on the markets: it is equipped with a hinged cover which automatically closes when the connector is removed. The hinged cover protects the interior effectively from external influences. A special spring on the bearing pedestal presses the hinged cover against the housing with sufficient pressure to prevent water spray and dust from entering the interior.
The new housing is locked with the Han-Easy Lock® bracket which impresses with easy use, a good sealing effect and low operational force. In an unplugged condition the new bulkhead mounted housing meets IP 44, in the plugged condition, such as in combination with a suitable Han® B hood, it complies with the IP 65 protection class.
The Han® B connector range, with its housings and inserts, covers the entire range of industrial requirements for professional connection technology. Introducing the new Han® Snap Cap mechanism, HARTING is extending the options for protecting electrically powered applications against external influences. The application possibilities of the bulkhead mounted housing with hinged cover range from wind turbines and wind energy systems, cranes and switchgear and all the way through to trains and trams, as for motor connections in areas exposed to water spray, for example.
In all these applications, the Han® B bulkhead mounted housing ensures reliability of operation - also under extreme conditions. Users can choose from standard sizes ranging from 6B to 24B.
