New Han-Modular® Frame Makes Assembling a Modular Connector Easier Than Ever

Press release date: Jul 01, 2017

With the introduction of a new spring-loaded frame to the Han-Modular® building block system, HARTING is making it even easier and faster to create a modular connector that precisely fits each application. The Han-Modular® lineup now includes over 100 different modules for power, data and signal that can be combined virtually without limitation. The new “hinged frame plus” for Han-Modular® connectors features an additional stainless steel spring that holds the frame in the open position during assembly so modules can be easily fitted into their proper position for faster assembly, and time and labor savings. All module positions (A to F) are evident at a glance; while an additional marking – a black triangle – indicates the orientation for proper insertion of modules into the frame. The frame windows have been optimized so that the modules are automatically centered as the frame is closed. Upon locking, there is a clearly audible "click" and the spring holds the frame securely together – dispensing with the locking tab used in the past.

Since the general design of the previous hinged frame is maintained in “hinged frame plus”, the new design is fully compatible with all Han-Modular® connectors, the market standard for modular industrial connectors. No compromises need to be made in terms of mechanical stability.
