Han-Eco® series offers expanded deployment possibilities


New monoblock inserts for higher contact densities in the Han-Eco® series are expanding deployment possibilities. In addition, the proven Han-Eco® "click and mate" snap-in function offers significant handling advantages thanks to tool-less installation.

The Han-Eco® series comprises robust connector housings made of glass-fiber reinforced high-performance plastics. The series has established itself on the market over the last year and a half thanks to its ability to offer advantages such as weight savings and savings in time during assembly and installation.

The new monoblocks E, which have been developed primarily for use in housings from the Han-Eco® series, have seen the proven Han-Eco® "click and mate" snap-in function retained, i.e. the simple and completely tool-free mounting of the insert.

A special feature of the new Han-Eco® monoblocks E is that they achieve up to 67 percent higher contact density compared to Han E standard screw inserts of the same size. The inserts feature a pre-leading PE contact (ground) and the possibility of a six-fold coding system. This results in contact numbers of 10+PE, 14+PE, 20+PE and 28+PE for the four sizes.

Moreover, it is also possible to combine a monoblock E with modules from the Han-Modular® series in a housing from the Han-Eco® series. Another possibility for use is in the Han-Modular® docking frame. The new contacts are based on the proven Han® E contacts with screw termination. The monoblocks E have a rated voltage of 500 V and a rated current of 16 A. The cable connection cross-section is 0.75 mm2 (AWG 18) minimum and 2.5 mm2 (AWG 14) maximum.
