A cable-to-cable industrial connector hood which offers secure moisture protection to the IP67 and IP69K, allowing the speedy installation and easy retrofitting of flexible, food-safe cable extensions to be carried out in the food and beverage industry has been introduced by HARTING. The special easy-to-clean design of the Han F+B cable-to-cable hood prevents dirt pockets from forming on the cabling, allowing the system to be used on equipment in the splash zone.
The patented design of the Han F+B cable-to-cable hood features large radii and especially smooth surfaces, in compliance with the industry standard EHEDG guidelines. Han F+B couplings also allow the easy upgrade of previously non-extensible connections in the food and beverage industry, facilitating the rapid installation of devices such as fans, heaters or motors.
The connectors offer a wide range of different contact configurations. Currently, 25 different inserts are available for the connection and transmission of bus systems, signals and power (up to 40A). The special 'cap-in-cap' design of the protection caps, featuring a screwed connection between the hood cover and the gland cover, ensures the simple, dirt-pocket free storage at the point of use.
