Harting is offering an extensive range of multipole connectors that can help reduce theme park maintenance costs for equipment installed in harsh outdoor environment conditions. The robust characteristics of these connectors result from the use of alternative material finishes and mating protection seals, which lead to extended product lifetimes.
These features can also be particularly useful where ride, audio-visual and lighting control systems may be exposed to the cleaning fluids that are necessary to ensure a safe operating environment for the public.
There is a comprehensive range of different hoods and housings available offering IP65, IP67 and IP68/69K degrees of protection. Products are available that offer protection against ultraviolet radiation, ozone and salt spray, as well as connectors with different degrees of chemical resistance.
The IP 68/69K rated Han HPR connector has fully protected enclosed standard seals with an outdoor-rated surface finish and screw-mated coupling. The black outdoor-rated IP67 Han-Yellock connectors use a similar enclosed protected seal design, but the mating is based on a user-friendly single-handed pushbutton system.
For an IP65 degree of protection, Harting offers the black Han-M series die-cast aluminium or lightweight plastic Han-Eco hoods and housings, both available with outdoor UV resistant seals.
