Hybrid power T connector aids decentralised motor control
News Release from:
22 May 2009
The Han-Power T Modular Twin from HARTING is a hybrid connector including modules for both power and signal transmission. The new device is designed to provide maximum flexibility in industrial power bus systems, allowing a high degree of decentralisation in applications such as intelligent motor controls mounted on the machine or conveyor being controlled.
The new connector module combines the HARTING Power T configuration with the Han-Modular(R) Twin connector, allowing currents of up to 40 A at 400/690 V to be transmitted alongside signal transmission via two 24 V contacts. Built-in detection circuitry senses whether all the connectors in a system are plugged in.
Individual adjustment to customer-specific configurations is possible by changing the combination of signal and power connections, depending on the application.
If two loads are located close to each other, the Power T units can be connected directly together. In addition, the system cables developed for the Power T family can simply be fitted together with connectors if additional length is required.
