Han HPR industrial connector housings from Harting now include a protective cover for size 3A bulkhead and surface mount housings. The cover protects the contact inserts from environmental influences when not in use: in particular, effects that can cause outages in outdoor applications in the rail and industrial sectors. This is particularly challenging for interfaces that are not always in use, such as service interfaces.
The Han 3 HPR protective cover is fitted with the same screw locking system used for the hoods, and fulfils IP68 protection requirements in the locked position. Options include a stainless steel lanyard, ensuring that the protective cover will not be lost. Primary application will be in electrical interfaces in vehicles, applications with increased climatic demands, wet areas and sensitive interfaces that need to be protected or shielded.
