NEW PRODUCT FROM HARTING

(Thursday 5th November, 2015 at 15:12)
  • More opportunities for PCB connection with Han-Fast®Lock contacts.

With the Han-Fast® Lock, connecting to printed Han® industrial connector’s circuit boards is quick and easy. New contacts now offer even more ways to leverage space-saving PCB contacting.

The Han-Fast® Lock PCB connector easily meets the demands posed by high electrical currents while offering simple handling and efficient size. Compact, flexible and simple contacting is produced without the need for additional components. Only a single contact point is required for the connection. The printed circuits are through-plated and provided with a drill hole and support point. The product portfolio now includes new angled variants as well as contacts for cross sections of 1.5 mm2 to 10 mm2.

The assembled contact is inserted into the prepared PCB and the included mandrel is pressed in order to lock it to the PCB. The functionality is remarkably simple and is similar to a typical push button. In addition to the technical parameters, the development effort also emphasised optimised processing. As a result, the overall costs of PCB manufacture are optimised while equipment costs are reduced.

New tools for safe and simple assembly of industrial connectors

New tools for safe and simple assembly of industrial connectors

HARTING has introduced a new range of tools to aid the assembly of the company’s family of industrial connectors.

The tools include a new slimline screwdriver, tightening torque tools for guiding pins and bushes, panel cutout punch tools for industrial connectors, a new 4-indent crimp tool and crimping tools for wire gauges up to 70 mm².

The new tightening torque tool offers the simplest operation and reproducible quality with a fixed torque (0.5 Nm) which makes over- or under-tightening impossible. The new slimline screwdrivers are ideal for lean assembly with the integration of the insulation at blade diameter.

The implementation of the HARTING panel cutout punch tools represents a further addition in the area of processing technology. Customers who retrospectively select the most expedient connector can make the corresponding cutout very simply. A battery- or hand-powered hydraulic punching machine is available which - in combination with the appropriate punch unit - makes the corresponding hole immediately. As a result, users can entirely dispense with laborious sawing. The punch unit is available for many different sizes, including HARTING’s Han® B and Han-Compact® connector families.

For crimp assembly technology, battery- and hand-powered crimp tools for high-current contacts are available, with a press force of 60 kN in combination with 9 mm wide DIN 46235 press dies for all HC contacts up to 70 mm². Previously, a tool with a press force of 130 kN had to be employed.

The new 4-indent crimp tool features a rotatable locator with integral marking of the crimp settings to make its operation significantly easier. This results in the expected high crimp quality of a 4-indent crimp with low operating force requirements.
