Panel Builder System Integrator

November 26, 2019

The industrial sector is using ever smaller machines at the same time as the modularisation of plants and systems continues to progress. What is needed are compact, modular and robust connections for connecting small loads. HARTING is responding to this trend with the Han 1A. The rectangular connector has a whole host of advantages: the connector is suitable for the transmission of data, signals and power, and provides an ideal solution for e.g. control systems, smaller drives and switch cabinet installations.

The housings, inserts and cable glands of the new series are made of high-performance plastic, which makes the connector a lightweight. The Han 1A is smaller than all previous Han solutions. In comparison to the Han 3A – the smallest rectangular connector portfolio yet – the space requirement is reduced by about one third.

The modular design of the Han 1A offers maximum flexibility for the respective application. Solutions for a wide variety of tasks can be developed from just a small number of elements. Power ratings up to 16 A / 400 V, signals with up to 12 contacts per insert, and data at a rate of 10 Gbps (Cat. 6A) can all be transmitted.

Depending on the customer's requirements, the new connector series offers the right solution. Users can thus decide between a classic metal clamp lock and a latched lock already integrated into the housing. There are also two options with regard to the connection technology: screw and crimp connection.

In addition, flexibility is enhanced by a wide range of useful accessories. Using e.g. cable glands or single-wire seals, within seconds the Han 1A system can be transformed from an IP20 solution into an IP65 connector for harsh industrial environments.

Overview of the Han 1A:

-       Low overall weight: Thanks to plastic elements, the Han 1A has a low overall weight, especially compared to metallic connectors.

-       Versatility: "Custom" solutions for a variety of applications due to the modular concept. Han 1A offers inserts for the transmission of data, signal and power, as well as a wide range of accessories.

-       Time savings: The simple "Mate & Click" design of all individual components allows the connector to be assembled in just a few seconds.

-       Space-saving: Han 1A components conform to the trend towards miniaturisation. At the same time, they enable the construction of robust Han® connectors – even for harsh industrial environments.

-       Cost savings: The modular system consists of a small number of individual components. Virtually an unlimited number of solutions can be created from just a few different parts, which leads to a reduction of storage costs.

-       Data transmission up to Cat. 6A: The Han 1A is extremely versatile. In addition to power and signal transmission, it also enables high-speed data transmission.

-       IP-protected, if necessary: An IP65 solution can be easily achieved by using housing elements or single-wire seals.

One of Canada’s largest wastewater treatment plants at Annacis Island provides secondary treatment to approximately 175 billion litres of wastewater every year for over 1 million residents in 14 municipalities. After almost 20 years in operation, the variable frequency drives supporting the critical pumping systems for the primary treatment and secondary treatment facilities had to be replaced to ensure that the plant’s high operational availability and reliability will not be compromised in serving the plant, the surrounding municipalities and the environment. Metro Vancouver Regional District chose to deploy Rittal’s enclosure and power distribution solutions with E-plan software to efficiently support vital infrastructure improvements by reducing equipment replacement times and thereby minimizing risk to plant operations.

How Omron's Robotic Solutions Increased a Chocolate Company's Production By 40%

OmronAt BOLCi Bolu Chocolate, a Turkish manufacturer of elegant truffles and other delicacies, the opportunity arose for some improvements to its production system. With over 300 employees and a 20,000-square-meter factory, BOLCi has a product list of over 800 different items and produces and average of 200 tons of chocolate items each month.

BOLÇİ’s guarantee to its customers is that its chocolate is never sullied by human touch during production or packaging. In order to maintain this immaculate status and reach increasingly high production targets, the chocolate manufacturer turned to Omron and system integrator Innovas to devise an automated solution for its packaging line.
