Space-saving industrial connectors for railway vehicles
Thanks to the flexibility of its modular inserts, the Han® 1A can be used in both protected indoor as well as outdoor areas, reliably covering the protection classes IP20 and IP65.
In order to save energy and optimally use the installation space available, rail vehicle designers are looking for miniaturised solutions. Electrical interfaces can also contribute to the development by becoming smaller and more efficient.
With the Han® 1A, HARTING presents a new, small as well as powerful interface that clearly undercuts the dimensions of the smallest rectangular industrial connector so far, the Han® 3A.
The new Benjamin of the Han® family has a modular design and uses black plastic hoods and housings with differently coloured codings. The product developers have taken into account the customers’ needs for tight inventories: the number of modules or components has been kept as low as possible.
According to relevant railway standards
The railway standards require a data transmission that is undisturbed even in environments with heavy loads. With regard to connectors, this means that the transmission of data and signals must be protected effectively against electrical and magnetic interference. The Han® 1A is particularly suitable for such applications, because it provides insulation bodies that have a double chamber for inserting a shielding plate side-by-side with Han® D contacts and a PE. The maximum level for power and signals that can be transferred under the shielding is 10 A / 400 V.
Adapters as well as contact inserts for M12, D-coded, and M12, X-coded, are also available. They enable a data transmission in the rail vehicle, which is shielded against interference. The first solution guarantees an undisturbed data transmission according to Cat. 5, the second is in accordance with Cat. 6A.
Due to the modularity and the many different uses, the Han® 1A is applicable wherever small drives, sensors and devices need to be supplied. In the field train vehicle engineering this implies e.g. the supply of door drives and entry systems, lighting, headlights, loudspeakers, screens, scoreboards, warning and alarm lights, pushbuttons, wipers or signal generators.
