High-current connector provides solution for tight installation space
HARTING is further consolidating its performance in the upper segment of its Han® HPR connector series. The new Han® 22 HPR slim is ultra-slim, while still easily accommodating four 250A high-current contacts. Equipped with a robust HPR housing made of die-cast aluminium, this connector deftly handles the need for the transmission of high power in the underfloor region of rolling stock, e.g. for the connection to the engine.
Other housing dimensions were optimized as well, with the result that the space requirement was slashed by some 40 % compared to conventional solutions.
Manufacturers of rail vehicles are faced with increasingly less space to house a rising number of electrical components. An ultra-slim solution such as the Han® 22 HPR slim, with its significantly reduced dimensions, meets this need for solutions coping with limited space.
