Ruggedised, high-density cabling for theatre, concert and AV installations
News Release from:
10 October 2010
The HARTING Han-Modular series of industrial connector inserts allows event installers in the theatre, concert and AV sectors to create high-density connectivity and cabling solutions with total signal handling flexibility - including audio, video, communications, data and power - in a range of rugged IP65/67 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. Various coaxial modules can handle SDI and HD-SDI video. A full range of power modules allows current handling from a few amperes through to 100 A. RJ45 data modules allow Cat. 5 10/100 Mbit/s or Cat. 6e 1 Gbit/s Ethernet transfer via HARTING patch leads. The integrated screening design of the Han(R) Gigabit Ethernet module allows secure signal and power modules to be densely packed in a single housing. For optimum signal screening and increased transmission distances, HARTING also offers SC fibre-optic modules.
The optional HARTING hoods and housings accommodating such inserts include the Han(R) B series with rugged Han-Easy Lock(R) 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: particularly useful for connections made in awkward access areas. The Han-Eco(R) series provides a lightweight but robust package, ideal for portable equipment.
All these products feature a first-mate/last-break ground mating condition. A range of cable glands is available; alternatively, threaded entry areas can accommodate standard conduit fittings to maintain IP65 protection if separate mixed cables are used.
