Harting has introduced a bulkhead-mounted version of its Han B industrial connector housing providing improved protection against water ingress up to protection level IP 67. The new housing incorporates a special flange which prevents water from penetrating into the connector and consequently offers ideal protection for the contact points in the housing interior.
A circumferential collar also prevents the seal from sliding off inwards or outwards, and consequently offers solid support. The use of a stable seal offsets the effect of uneven sections and provides additional protection against water penetration.
No extra costs are incurred when the IP 67 bulkhead-mounted housing is installed, as the cutout corresponds to the dimensions of the existing Han housing portfolio. The new bulkhead-mounted housing is locked with the Harting Han-Easy Lock levers, which allow a high contact pressure level when closed and also provide optimal sealing between the hood and the bottom housing.
The new IP 67 flange is the latest addition to the company”s comprehensive range of housings for use in industrial environments. Potential applications are in any industrial sectors where operational reliability is required under extreme conditions, such as wind turbines, cranes, electricity substations and the rail industry.
