A module for the pluggable connection of large PE cross-sections of 10 to 35 mm² is now available that complements the 50 different connector modules already available.
The hinged frame of the Han-Modular® series already features two integrated PE connections for the 0.5 to 10 mm² cross-section range. Cross-sections of 10 to 35 mm² can now be realized using a pluggable PE module. Special cables with reduced PE are no longer necessary - inexpensive and globally available standard cables can be employed instead. The PE module is simply mounted in the articulated frame, creating a secure, electrically conductive connection from the PE contact to the hinged frame and the housing. The PE protective earth connection is pre-leading and complies with standard IEC 61984.
The module is available in two different termination technologies. The crimp version is ideal for applications in which the power contacts are currently crimped, and any available crimping tools can still be used since the crimping zone is identical. The version with axial screw termination has the advantage that no special tool is required, as termination can be performed using a simple 4 mm hexagonal screwdriver.
