New Angular Housing Makes HARTING Han-Modular® Twin Ideal for Motor Connection

Press release date: May 01, 2017

With its new angular housing, HARTING’s Han-Modular® Twin provides users with a particularly compact and customizable connector solution that’s ideal for applications like motor connection, especially for larger motors up to 70 A. The Han-Modular® Twin has the appearance of a small format IP65 connector. Fitted at a right angle to the motor, the 39x44mm angular housing takes the place of the terminal box, making for a very user-friendly connection. The hood is in two parts – an upper part with the cable inlet and the carrier housing underneath. This design feature makes it easier to fit the inserts into the hood and the cable can be fitted faster and more securely.

The Han-Modular® Twin is designed to hold two modules from the extensive Han-Modular® lineup, so it can be configured as a power-only connector or as a hybrid with a power insert and either a signal or data insert. A hybrid configuration makes an excellent connection option for servo motors in combination with two circular connectors. Such a hybrid might include a 4x40 A power module and a second module for 25 signal or data contacts. In servo motor connection, the plug and play Han-Modular® Twin makes motor changes quicker if you have a faulty drive – which can minimize production downtime.
