Hinged frame offers installation advantages to connector system

HARTING has added a new hinged frame module to its established Han-Modular industrial connector system. The new Hinged Frame Plus module incorporates a stainless steel spring that holds the frame together in the open and closed positions, as well as a number of other features that have been optimised to make assembling the connector modules easier and more efficient.

Highly visible lettering provides support in this context. All module positions are evident at first glance, while an additional marking with a black triangle indicates the orientation for proper insertion of the modules on the frame.

Insertion of the modules is especially easy since the spring maintains the frame in the open position and the modules fall into a defined support edge. The frame windows are optimised so that they have a funnel-shaped opening with the modules automatically centred when the frames are closed.

When locking, a contour fitted to the joint works in tandem with the stainless steel spring to produce a clearly audible click, and holds the frame securely together - meaning that the fixing elements previously used can be dispensed with.

Since the new module is based on the design of the original hinged frame module, it continues to offer the properties of high mechanical stability and full compatibility with the entire Han-Modular connector range - the market standard for modular industrial connectors.

Despite the variety of over 100 different modules for power, data and signals, all available modules can be used without limitation, and no compromises need be made in terms of mechanical stability.
