Han® B IP 67 bulkhead-mounted housing

Han® B IP 67

Proven Han® B industrial connector housing now also suitable for up to IP 67

HARTING standard housings offer the user optimal protection against outside physical influences. The already existing Han® B housing product range guarantees IP 65 protection when locked and mated. 

A new bulkhead-mounted housing surpasses this level with greater IP 67 protection. The housing's special flange prevents water from penetrating into the connector and consequently offers ideal protection for the contact points in the housing interior. At the same time, the circumferential collar offers protection while also preventing the seal from sliding off inwardly or outwardly, and consequently offers solid support. The new IP 67 housing furthermore has a stable seal that is able to offset uneven sections, which provides additional protection against penetrating water. 

No extra costs arise when the IP 67 bulkhead-mounted housing is installed, as the cutout corresponds to the dimensions of the existing Han® housing portfolio. The new bulkhead-mounted housing is locked with the HARTING Han-Easy Lock® levers, which allow a high contact pressure level when closed and consequently also provide optimal sealing between the hood and the bottom housing.

The new IP 67 flange is a systematic addition to HARTING's housing program, and one that raises the protection level in application against outside influences. The housing's potential applications range from wind turbines, cranes and switching stations to the rail sector. In all of these areas, operational reliability is ensured also under extreme conditions.
