Han® 1 A – Compact. Robust. Versatile.

August 2019 - The Han® 1A offers a compact, robust and universally deployable
rectangular connector system for transmission in all lifelines of Industry 4.0 (data, power,
signals). Smaller drives are becoming more common and require smaller interfaces. This
new connector series reflects the trend with space optimized housings and inserts. The
Han® 1 A is 30% smaller than the Han® 3 A, which was previously the smallest offering in
the Han® Industrial connector series.

Due to the modularity and a variety of different applications, the Han® 1 A is suitable for
all areas in which small drives, sensors and devices must be supplied. Individual
components can be quickly assembled to form a ready-to-use connector. The portfolio
also includes accessories such as fasteners for rapid wall mounting, strain relief or colorcoding

The series follows the Han-Modular® principle. The customer can flexibly combine
insulating bodies, contacts, housings and interlocks to interfaces and achieve degrees of
protection according to its requirements. An IP20 solution with only two components can
be assembled for use in protected areas within industry.

Only a few additional components are required to make it a water- and dust-proof solution
with single-wire sealing mats, which in turn enables gripper and other robotic tools to be
fed in pluggable manner. With additional housing elements, the degree of protection can
be quickly extended to IP65.

In addition to interfaces in an IP-protected environment, the Han® 1A is ideally suited for
the supply of devices and small actuators in the periphery of production facilities and for
the connection of tools or small machine modules. Even with minimal warehouse
inventory, users can use just a few basic elements to equip many different applications.
As a result, Han® 1 A offers maximum options with minimal stock on hand. This makes
the Han® 1A the most versatile series in the Han® portfolio.
