Learn how to save space & money via modularisation
How can we divide a machine or facility so that, after it has been manufactured, it can be set up by the user in a short time and with the least amount of resources?
When developing a new generation of machines, finding an answer to the question that follows is only a secondary step: How can we divide a machine or facility so that, after it has been manufactured, it can be set up by the user in a short time and with the least amount of resources?
Modularity provides a promising perspective: the developers have divided the machines or facilities into functional groups which are installed separately and then assembled into functioning units or production lines only then when they arrive at their final set-up site.
Versatile connectivity technology
Such a modular approach is only possible when versatile connectivity technology is used: industrial connectors enable easy and safe electrical interfaces to be established between functional units. They also handle the necessary transmission of data, signals and/or power.
The selected connectors must also be versatile, scalable and open for future extensions. Thus, modular connectors are the perfect solution for many of the interfaces in modular machines or facilities. HARTING offers a comprehensive product portfolio for such applications.
The Han-Modular® connectors deliver solutions for all conventional power, control, signal and data connections. Mechanical engineers are then free to concentrate on the essential technical aspects and the relevant requirements for machine manufacturers:
Including electrical properties such as rated voltage, current capacity, data rates, EMC properties of the inserts, hoods and housings, space requirements, interface weight, as well as handling and ease of assembly.
Your benefits at a glance:
- Time savings in the assembly and retrofitting of machinery
- Savings of costs and resources
- Correct and easy assembly even by non-qualified personnel possible
- Hybrid interfaces combining the transmission of signal, power and compressed air)
- Optimal dimensioning of interfaces according to your specifications
