Harting has introduced a new range of protective covers which provide optimal protection against dirt for contact inserts in its Han HPR industrial connector hoods in sizes 6B, 10B, 16B and 24B. The new covers are designed for use in electrical interfaces in vehicles or in the industrial environment which are subjected to extreme conditions.
In order to be able to guarantee reliable transfer of sensitive signals under these conditions, connectors have to be protected against moisture, snow, ice, rocks and other environmental influences. The Han HPR housing series was developed for exactly such application areas.
Connectors that are not permanently mated are often exposed to these influences without protection. This may result in malfunctions or even serious breakdowns in safety equipment. With the new Han HPR protection covers, Harting has expanded the Han HPR housing series product range, which is widely used in the rail sector.
The covers are equipped with the screw/toggle locking system commonly used in the Han HPR housing series and offer IP 68 protection as specified by IEC 60529. An attachment cord connects the Han HPR protection cover securely to the housing so that it cannot be lost.
