Elgin, Ill. – HARTING has expanded the Han-Yellock line of modular industrial connectors with the introduction of a smaller size. The Han-Yellock 10 can fit both rectangular and circular panel cut outs, allowing direct replacement of circular connectors with a panel cut out diameter between 28 – 30 mm. It joins the Han-Yellock sizes 30 and 60 and comes with either cable glands M20 or M25, top or angled entry.
The Han-Yellock line features a unique, internal latched locking/unlocking mechanism for extremely fast field connections. The steel mechanism locks both housing halves in place. Turning the yellow button on the hood 90º prevents accidental disconnects. For unlocking, turning the yellow button to the open position, then pressing it, means the two halves can be separated in seconds.
The Han-Yellock 10 can be used for power only, or for combinations of power, signal and/or data. Any Han 3A insert – over 25 in all – will fit in this modular connector. It can carry up to 40 A / 690 V of power, data for Ethernet applications, including optical data transmission. In addition, multi-pole inserts with up to 21 contacts also are available. Termination options include crimp, screw and HARTING proprietary Han-Quick Lock. Like the larger Han-Yellock sizes, the zinc die-cast Han-Yellock 10 provides optimal EMC properties and as well as IP 65/67 protection when locked, said the company.
