HARTING announced its Han-Power T, a completely pluggable, modular connectivity solution. The T-shaped Han-Power T connection system makes it easy to assemble a modular power bus that supplies power and control to multiple devices from a single cable line. A key aspect of this modular connection design is the ease of installing and servicing the various cable drops off the single main line. Instead of two different connectors for power and control, a single Han-Power T connector has an internal contact arrangement custom-tailored for both types of wiring. Power and control lines traverse the “top” part of the T as feed-throughs, while drops to individual drive motors exit the connector via the “down leg” of the T. The system is rated for up to 600VAC power service, and up to 250V signal service. Power and signal inserts are available in different configurations for different wire sizes and current-carrying capacity.
