Contact inserts offer tool-free quick termination

HARTING has announced the introduction of its new Han ES Press contact inserts with tool-free quick connection technology. These inserts significantly reduce assembly time during wiring and jumpers offer the possibility of potential multiplication in the connector.

The secret of the design lies in the innovative cage clamp. The Han ES Press’ cage clamp is delivered open so that the conductor can be inserted directly and without effort. Once the installer presses the actuator into the contact chamber, the cage clamp returns to its starting position, fixing the conductor end so that the conductor is electrically connected to the contact. This connection technique permits faster termination during wiring.

The Han ES Press is also the first product in the Han E product family that enables bridging of individual contacts for potential multiplication. Various longitudinal and transverse bridges are available, which for example, also enable star and delta circuits for motor control.

With a current capacity of 16A, the Han ES Press is available in models 6, 10, 16 and 24 for housing sizes Han 6 B, 10 B 16 B and 24 B. The contact inserts are mating compatible with the corresponding inserts in the Han E, ES and ESS series. The cage clamps used are suitable for wire cross-sections between 0.14 and 2.5mm2 and can be used with both solid and stranded wires (with or without ferrules).
