Han® Hood Link ensures reliable locking

Han® Hood Link

Create simple cable-to-cable connections with the new Han® Hood Link. A special contour and internal seal now make it possible to connect two standard HARTING 16B hoods while simultaneously achieving an IP 65 degree of protection.

HARTING Technology Group is expanding the Han® B product portfolio with the addition of a new locking system. The special feature of this system is that it is made entirely of a resistant elastomer. This provides optimum protection against external mechanical forces, as well as good resistance to oils and gases.

A special contour and internal seal now enable the connection of two standard HARTING 16B hoods while simultaneously achieving an IP 65 degree of protection. The Han® Hood Link locks and seals in a single system, while housings can be quickly assembled and disassembled with minimal effort – all without tools.

A further product variant also permits housings to be locked together with both bulkhead and surface mounted housings.

A simple and robust locking element is particularly advantageous in stage technology, due to the risk of connectors falling from heights and the associated damage to the locking device upon impact. This impact can be prevented by the elasticity of the new Han® Hood Link, which enables mechanical forces to be absorbed from the outside. Furthermore, extending cables in machinery can be performed quickly and conveniently.
