Han-Eco®: New Robust Housings for Outdoor Applications
HARTING has decided to expand its well-known Han-Eco® series with more housing variants. Han-Eco® - robust connector housings in glass fiber reinforced high-performance plastic - gives the customer weight advantages, plus others, not least of which are price benefits. Their distinctive features are outstanding mechanical properties and excellent resistance to environmental factors. In comparison with the Han® B standard series, they also provide greater contact density through an additional module space.
In addition to products already available, an extra variant for outdoor applications has been available since May 2012. High-quality profile and flange gaskets in fluorine rubber (FPM) extend the range of uses to outdoor applications. The particular feature of FPM as a special sealing material is its excellent resistance to the effects of the weather, especially UV radiation, ozone pollution and high temperatures. It also impresses with high chemical resistance, for example to mineral oils, synthetic hydraulic fluids, fuels, aromatic compounds, many organic solvents and chemicals. This material has stood the test of decades of use in the Han® M housing series.
In combination with the high-performance plastic used, HARTING has developed a product which, seen as a whole, also creates weight advantages for outdoor applications.
