HARTING’s Han ES Press HMC Enables Flexible Production and Simplified Installation

EIN Harting Han 400

August 15, 2019

One of the core requirements of flexible production is the ability to quickly install machines and modules, reconfigure them at will and operate them without disruption. With its Han ES Press HMC series, HARTING has developed an interface that can be installed quickly without tools and is robust enough to be connected and disconnected ten-thousand times. 

This quick-connect technology is the Han ES Press HMC, with the suffix ‘HMC’ standing for High Mating Cycles. The contact inserts are equipped with a pre-tensioned cage clamp that is triggered by an actuator. If the actuator is pushed into the contact chamber, the cage clamp returns to its original position and secures the conductor. Only a screwdriver is needed to release the connection.

The Han ES Press HMC fits with Han standard housing sizes 6 B to 24 B. The standard housings are already available in versions with locks and seals optimized for high mating cycles. Complementing this, contacts and grounding elements are now used that are extremely resistant to abrasion due to a special surface coating.

The Han ES Press series is reliable in all types of harsh environments, including high vibration environments.  This is due to how tight the conductor sits as a result of the constant pressure of the cage clamp. Installation and connection times are reduced when compared to conventional cage clamps, screw connections or hard wiring techniques.  As a result, on-site installation time is reduced, and fast detachability facilitates servicing.
