HARTING new Pneumatic Module Metal built to perform through 10,000 mating cycles
The new Han® Pneumatic Module Metal from HARTING presents another significant cost- and space-saving opportunity to use connectors to streamline flexible production processes with high mating cycles.
With robust metal contacts that can be plugged and unplugged at least 10,000 times, the new Han® Pneumatic Module Metal from HARTING presents another significant cost- and space-saving opportunity to use connectors to streamline flexible production processes with high mating cycles. The Han® Pneumatic Module Metal can withstand pressure up to 10 bars, covering the entire low pressure range. This compares with an upper limit of 8 bars for the existing Han® Pneumatic Module with plastic contacts. With pneumatic modules, users can route compressed air feed through the same connector along with power and signal lines rather than having to set up and maintain a separate compressed air connection for drive units, control units, brakes, holding and unloading units and much more.
The Pneumatic Module Metal is available in variants with two (for hose ∅ = 6 mm) or three plug slots (for hoses with ∅ = 1.6 to 4mm). The female contacts are available with or without a shut-off function –a spring-loaded valve that closes over an O-ring when the connector is opened, preventing compressed air from escaping. The Han® Pneumatic Module Metal be employed in a wide range of HARTING connector series that take Han-Modular® inserts, including Han-Yellock® and Han-Eco®.
The HARTING Technology Group, family owned and based in Germany, employs more than 4,300 people globally with subsidiaries and branch offices in 40 countries. With production facilities in Europe, Asia and the United States the HARTING portfolio of connectivity solutions focuses on multiple levels, from the machine to the device and into the communication infrastructure. The U.S. facility in Elgin, Illinois is one of three HARTING locations that manufactures the HIS product line (HARTING Integrated Solutions - backplanes) and custom cable assemblies. The company’s core business is intelligent and high-performance connection technology. HARTING works in almost all industrial markets with a focus on requirements for robust, reliable connectivity solutions.
