Harting Han-Yellock connectors

Harting introduces the Han-Yellock, a completely new connector series developed from several years of market feedback. The sleek design of the product, conceived with the electrical designer in mind, combines many unique features within one connector. Most notable is an integral locking system that incorporates patented pushbutton technology-a departure from existing lever designs for latching and unlatching rectangular connectors.

The mechanism provides a method for locking the product simply by turning one of the pushbuttons 90 degrees, thus reducing the chance for unauthorized access without the use of a tool. In addition, pre-wired modules may be installed into the connector body from the front or back and without fixing screws, and the ability to combine potentials and contacts has been integrated into the connector, providing functions formerly reserved for terminal blocks.

This saves space, reduces wiring time and eliminates potential wiring errors. The product also incorporates a single gender crimp contact design that eliminates the need for inventory and processing of male and female contacts. The Han-Yellock is available in multiple sizes incorporating up to thirty 20 A connections within one connector, and it accepts standard modules from the Han-Modular connector series.

The product was introduced on Monday, 19 April, 2010, at 9 a.m. at Hannover Fair.
