Robust connectors for miniaturisation in the rail sector

The Han 16 HPR EasyCon from HARTING is a robust industrial connector that has been designed specifically for miniaturisation in the rail sector.

The compact connector housing is said to accommodate up to four high-current contacts carrying up to 650A each, providing sufficient power for vehicle-mounted equipment such as compressors, single-wheel drives and ventilation systems.

According to the company, Han 16 HPR EasyCon combines a high transmission capacity with the highest possible number of contacts for the available installation space – all in a robust and reliable design that minimises the risk of attenuation loss.

The two-part housing is said to provide plenty of space for cables and is easy to install. HARTING also provides accessories for easy additional tension relief and cable shield connections.

In addition to the high current contacts, the connector can be installed with six different Han-Modular modules – for power and signal transmission, for example.

According to the company, Han 16 HPR EasyCon is the only HARTING housing in this size with a frame that provides enough room to accommodate so many modules and users can save a quarter of installation space compared to the next connector size up with this option.
