The Han® Shielded Power Module has three power contacts and one PE contact for connecting typical three-phase loads, two signal contacts for temperature monitoring, brakes, etc., as well as a large-area shielding to which the cable screening can be connected for better electromagnetic compatibility. The module represents an alternative to hardwired shielded power lines, while allowing such connections to be made side-by-side with other modules of the Han-Modular® series, in one hood or housing.
HARTING has tested the new module in practical applications in the EMC laboratory. The EMC characteristics of the shielding are suitable for typical drive applications such as frequency-controlled drives. The advantage of the module is that shielded power cables can now be connectorised. It is easy to handle as the shielding can be terminated directly to the module. This results in shorter assembly times for machinery and equipment, in the factory or at the end customer.
M12 in modular style
In the area of mechanical engineering, the M12 format enjoys high acceptance as a robust data interface. Now, HARTING has integrated this mating face within a single module – as a Han® M12 module with two M12 interfaces for signals, industrial buses or Ethernet transmission. It is available as different types, e.g. D- or X-coded version. As a result, the packing density compared to existing modules is doubled. This also saves on space for one module in the hinged frame – space that can be used for other functions.
Han DD® double module: higher voltage with Han D® contacts
With the Han DD® double module, HARTING has created a solution for 36 Han D® contacts that combine high contact density with a rated voltage of 400 V. Existing solutions accommodate only 24 contacts for 250 V in the same space. Thus, the number of contacts is increased by 50%.
Due to the electrical properties (10 A / 400 V), the double module is particularly suitable for transmitting power and signals in machines and robots. For the first time ever, it is now possible to use a single module to implement plug-in connections for three-phase AC motors, including return path for all six axes of a robot.
The HARTING Technology Group is one of the world’s leading providers of industrial connection technology for the three lifelines of Data, Signal and Power and has 14 production plants and 44 sales companies. Moreover, the company also produces retail checkout systems, electromagnetic actuators for automotive and industrial series use, charging equipment for electric vehicles, as well as hardware and software for customers and applications in automation technology, mechanical and plant engineering, robotics and transportation engineering. In the 2017/18 business year, some 5,000 employees generated sales of EUR 762 million.
