Connector hoods

A new range of hoods for Hartings's Han-Compact® family of industrial connectors offer a choice of straight or angled cable entry, and are based on a two-piece structure for convenient handling.

The compact metal hoods are suitable for all contact inserts in the Han-Compact® range, and include variants with surfaces for standard and EMC applications. The outer threads are moulded onto the hood. The range also includes cost-effective half-cable glands for a range of cable diameters and an IRIS spring for shield termination.

Thanks to the two-piece design of the hood, users can slip the hood element including the cable gland onto the cable during assembly. This facilitates speedy installation and rapid wiring of the contacts. The operation is completed by closing the hood element and fastening it with the screws.

A separate earth conductor terminal on the hood enables the use of connectors with higher rated voltages and currents. Connectors suited to use with the new hoods include the Han® Q 4/2 with crimp and axial screw termination, the Han® Q 8/0 with crimp and Han-Quick Lock® termination, the Han® Q 17/0 with crimp termination and the Han® Q Data RJ 45.
