Robust connector housings for outdoor applications


Harting has expanded its Han-Eco® industrial connector series with a range of plastic housings including a variant designed for outdoor applications.

These connector housings - in glass fibre reinforced high-performance plastic - give the customer the benefits of reduced weight and improved cost/performance ratio. They combine outstanding mechanical properties and excellent resistance to environmental factors, and in comparison with the company’s Han® B standard series they also provide greater contact density through an additional module space.

For outdoor applications, the new variant uses flange gaskets with fluorine rubber (FPM) as the sealing material. FPM provides excellent resistance to the effects of the weather, especially UV radiation, ozone pollution and high temperatures. It also offers high chemical resistance, for example to mineral oils, synthetic hydraulic fluids, fuels, aromatic compounds, many organic solvents and chemicals.
