ks to the two-piece design of the hood, users can slip the hood element including the cable gland onto the cable during assembly. This facilitates speedy installation and rapid wiring of the contacts. The operation is completed by closing the hood element and fastening it with the screws.
A separate earth conductor terminal on the hood enables the use of connectors with higher rated voltages and currents. Connectors suited to use with the new hoods include the Han(R) Q 4/2 with crimp and axial screw termination, the Han(R) Q 8/0 with crimp and Han-Quick Lock(R) termination, the Han(R) Q 17/0 with crimp termination and the Han(R) Q Data RJ 45.
