HARTING Canada is all about bringing innovative solutions to businesses across the country, and it has forecast the future of connectivity with its Han-Modular series. These modular connectors have been changing the way the engineering industry sees connectivity for several years now. They are rectangular connectors that enable combinations of several kinds of media into a single connection point, allowing optimally designed units to supply power for various equipment.
High degree of flexibility
Engineers can use off-the-shelf modules to customize connector systems for individual needs in a standard footprint with the Han-Modular series. By blending individual modules for different transmission media, these modular connectors enable custom systems of connectivity. They handle different types of signals through different selected modules, which can accommodate power, signal, data, and other multimedia types all in one connection.
Standardization in module sizes gives engineers a high degree of flexibility, allowing them to change modules as their designs change, without changing the footprints of their connectors. Placeholder modules allow for future proofing, and combining multiple connection points results in significant space saving. HARTING Han-Modular products connect to the Industrial Internet of Things at the component level – which has made this series of modular connectors the first “smart” connects on the market. Another key advantage: these units are low-maintenance. Users can easily reduce the time required for hard wiring and installation by using pre-assembled, pre-tested connector assemblies.
Another major benefit of the Han-Modular series is the rectangular connector design. These units lock easily with latching mechanisms, unlike traditional circular connectors, which need additional hand space for twisting into place. In addition, users can place these connectors right beside each other, allowing for smaller end devices. More flexibility and modularity are possible with rectangular connectors, which enable user-defined customization with off-the-shelf modules, while circular ones need to be custom-designed by the manufacturers, which extends lead times unnecessarily.
