Connection technology

The most common termination techniques can be assembled into the Han® connectors. Special inserts and contacts are available to match the particular techniques of wire termination.

The choice of the right termination technique depends mainly on the type of cable, the cable cross-section, as well as the number and type of contacts. In addition, all termination types offer different advantages for different production conditions.

Locking systems for hoods and housings

The locking mechanisms of hoods and housings do not only protect the connector from unintentional openings, they also increase the tightness. The most often used locking mechanism for industrial connectors are locking levers. However, there are several mechanisms available in different versions, each of which has its advantages and is suitable for special applications.

IP protection (contact protection, dust, water)

The connector’s housing, sealing and locking mechanism protect the connection from external influences such as mechanical shocks, foreign bodies, humidity, dust, water or other fluids such as cleansing and cooling agents, oils, etc.

The degree of protection the housing offers is explained in the IEC 60 529, DIN EN 60 529, standards that categorize enclosures according to foreign body and water protection.

Applications

Applications

Transportation

We provide connectivity solutions for transmitting power, data and signals in railway technology. Ethernet backbones and data infrastructures (e.g. for sensors and passenger information systems) are just some of the possible applications. Connectors are also used during the maintenance and integration of stationary railway infrastructures. Connectivity for the exterior of rail vehicle requires robust solutions that can withstand high environmental stress, such as stone chips, corrosion and extreme temperature changes.
