Two new modules have been added to Harting’s Han-Modular industrial connector family to provide enhanced mechanical robustness and signal integrity in industrial and transport applications.
Two data cables can be connected per module and the product combines assembly convenience with product compactness. The screening design is independent of that of the housing, and the proven Han D crimp contacts are used. These can be installed into the inserts and arranged to be easily accessible.
Because its mechanical properties meet those of the established Han Quintax connector, the Han Megabit module is ideally suited for applications with the highest mechanical specifications, for example for use as an Ethernet interface in railway carriage connections – with the module taking up only half as much space as conventional solutions. The module is designed for data rates of up to 100Mbit/s, meets Cat.5e performance requirements and can be used with stranded wires with cross-sections between 0.14 and 2.5mm2 and cable diameters between 5 and 12mm.
