Ruggedised high-density connectors for AV multimedia, theatre and concert installations
News Release from:
15 November 2011
HARTING's Han Modular(R) series connector inserts allow event installers to create high-density connectivity and cabling solutions with total signal-handling flexibility – including audio, video, communications, data and power - through different rugged IP 65/67 hoods and housings suitable for harsh handling conditions. Multiple contact style modules can be mixed to suit particular needs. Multi-pin modules can support analogue and digital audio transfer, while multi-way coaxial modules can handle CCTV, SDI, HD-SDI and 3G-SDI video. A full range of power modules allows current handling from a few amperes to 200 A.
RJ45 data modules allow Cat.5 10/100 Mbit/s, Cat.6e 1 Gbit/s or Cat.6EA 10 Gbit/s Ethernet transfer via HARTING patch leads. Signal security between power and data lines can be ensured where necessary through EMC screening options or by the use of SC fibre-optic modules.
The optional HARTING hoods and housings accommodating such inserts include the Han(R) B series, utilising rugged Han(R) Easy Lock levers with versions available in anti-reflective black finish. A Han(R) Easy hood design allows side access for easier wiring.
The innovative Han-Yellock(R) design allows single-handed pushbutton mating, which is particularly useful for connections made in awkward access areas. The sleek shape, along with the internal locking system, supports cable trunking “drag-through”.
The Han-Eco(R) series provides a lightweight but robust package, ideal for portable equipment.
All these designs offer integral protective earthing, ensuring finger-safe protective handling. A range of cable glands is available, and threaded entry areas can accommodate standard conduit fittings to maintain IP 65 if separate mixed cables are used.
HARTING offers a technical AV Multimedia Selection Guide to assist designers and installers with their optimum connector choice.
