HARTING's Han® IP67 Bulkhead Housing Sets New Connector Baseline
HARTING’s new Han® B IP67 bulkhead mounted housings provide IP67 protection, allowing for temporary, full immersion in water.
Elgin, IL – HARTING’s new Han® B IP67 bulkhead mounted housings offer a compelling alternative to IP65 rated connectors.
The Han® IP67 Housing, as the name implies, provides IP66 and IP67 protection, and does it for virtually the same price as a comparable IP65 rated connector. As a practical example of the difference, in the locked state, the Han® IP67 housing’s protection allows for temporary, full immersion in water, as compared with the IP 65 rated housing which is only hose proof. The Han® IP67’s special flange protects the gasket seal, preventing water from penetrating the connector. The circumferential collar also prevents the seal from sliding inwards or outwards; seal stability provides additional protection against water ingress. The Han® IP67 uses the proven Han-Easy Lock® locking system for high contact pressure.
The Han® B IP67 bulkhead housing is compatible with all standard Han® hoods and housings, and can be configured with any Han® insert or module, including the over 50 inserts in the Han-Modular® series. It comes in sizes 6B, 10B, 16B and 24B that fit the same standard cut-out dimensions for the existing Han® housing portfolio. The IP67 housing is ideal for applications in extreme conditions like wind turbines, construction cranes, railway and marine installations. However, HARTING also recommends it for many other applications. Since the cost difference between the Han® IP67 and comparable IP65 bulkhead housings is minimal or non-existent, there is no downside in having more protection than the situation calls for rather than too little.
