Robust metal docking frame for easy connections

31 July 2017

HARTING has introduced a new robust metal connector solution to speed up the installation of systems that have to be mated ‘blind’ or coupled automatically – in switch cabinet drawers, for example.

The new Han-Modular Docking Frame Metal is said to provide a cost-effective solution to quickly and securely switch machine components.
The frame works as a receptacle for units in the Han-Modular family of industrial connectors, in which different modules for the transfer of power, signal and data or compressed air can be located side-by-side. The docking frame works without the need for any additional articulated frames, and connector modules can be fitted directly to it. The frame has two long leading guide pins on the pin side to bring the two connector faces together. 

The connectors are located in a floating mount with a ±2 mm tolerance, allowing the socket face to be oriented to the ideal position for greater accuracy and a more secure connection. Because grounding is separate in many insertion scenarios, the docking frame has no PE contact, but grounding can be added as required with a Han® PE module that can be obtained separately. 

The Han-Modular Docking Connector Metal can be connected either manually (directly or indirectly) or automatically. The construction of the device is particularly robust and mechanically stable to make it secure enough for all applications.
