A new hybrid industrial connector has been developed by HARTING as the new Han M23 Power, which combines the capability to transmit both power and signals with a high degree of environmental protection. The new connector extends the Han M23 series by allowing the industrial lifelines of signal and power to be fully supplied from a single device.

The field of application includes drive technology as well as any areas with increased demands on vibration safety and protection against dust and water as well as other external mechanical influences. Built-in shielding also offers additional protection against electromagnetic interference.

The robust housing of the Han M23 Power meets IP protection classes 67 and 69K in the closed position, making it particularly suitable for harsh industrial environments. Simple tool-free assembly makes the connector suitable for field assembly by service personnel as well as for serial production.

With power contacts for a voltage range of up to 630V AC and a maximum current carrying capacity of 28A, large amounts of power can be transmitted in a small installation space.

To complement the contact insert, the Han M23 series offers a wide range of housings, including straight, angled and rotatable sleeve versions as well as various bulkhead and coupling types, in order to adapt the connectors optimally to the requirements of different applications.

The contact inserts in the series, including the Han M23 Signal (6- to 19-pole) and the Han M23 Power (6- to 9-pole) are plug-compatible with most other M23 round connector types available on the market. Fast and secure mating and unmating is ensured by the use of the Han Com Lock locking system.
