Power connector features push/pull locking

Han PushPull Power from Harting is a new, compact 5-pole power
connector with voltage and current ratings up to 690 V and 16 A,
respectively. The new connector is part of HARTING’s PushPull family of rugged connectors
for transmitting optical and electrical communications, along with signals
and power, with IP65/IP67 protection for use in industrial environments. The
connectors are available in metal or plastic housings, and assembly is
carried out by proven crimp technology or the innovative Han-Quick Lock(r)
rapid termination technology.

Panel feedthroughs are available to bring the power efficiently into the
switch cabinet or directly to the power or control device. Straight or
angled male inserts can be used to conduct the power to a PCB for device
integration. Coding pins for use in components on both the device and cable
sides are used to reliably differentiate interfaces with different voltage
levels.

This approach to industrial device connectivity is ideally suited to areas
such as process control and machine building, where the compact nature of
the connection devices allows optimal configuration.
