Using a Han L32 B connector from Harting is said to allow users to replace two size 16 B interfaces — saving over 40% of installation space. This makes it possible to transmit power, signals and data with fewer interfaces and fewer components, the company says, as well as cuts the time required to assemble interfaces.
The space in the connector housing can be filled with a Han E insulator for 32 contacts (16 A/500 V) or with a Han-Modular articulated frame that can accommodate up to eight modules.
There are over 100 Han-Modular modules available, including those for pneumatic applications.
At 57 mm, the L32 B housing is exactly 25 mm wider than the next smaller size of 24 B.
The new addition means that Harting now offers a total of seven sizes for the Han B: 6, 10, 16, 24, 32, L32 and 48.
