Harting has introduced plastic versions of its connector mounting frames for the Han-Port front panel interface system. The new option provides a lightweight solution for users looking to connect external devices to controls and systems in control cabinets or machine enclosures for diagnostics or maintenance purposes.
The Han-Port plastic mounting frames are available as single and double versions and users can choose between transparent and metallic finishes for the covers. A 3 mm double-bit closure is available for locking the cover. Simply clicking the enclosed rotation knob in the double-bit closure enables rotation knob closure.
The use of high-quality plastics and an IP65 degree of protection (with closed cover) allows the new plastic mounting frames to be deployed in harsh industrial environments.
The mounting frames feature a spring mechanism that lifts the unlocked cover upward by 30°, allowing users to easily detect whether the cover is closed.
The well-known plug sockets and/or data modules are inserted and snapped into place in the new Han-Port mounting frames. This modular system facilitates a variety of combination options and allows customers to react flexibly to their different interface requirements.
Approvals by outside bodies including NEMA and UL mean that the units can be used virtually worldwide.
