HARTING’s HAN F+B connector brings IP69K protection to splash zones.
HARTING introduced its Han F&B connector, a series of modular, user-configurable connectors with IP69K protection for food and beverage Zone 2 applications. The FDA 21-approved circular connectors are made of non-toxic PP plastic and offer chemical, heat and cold resistance, as well as Ecolab certified cleaning agents. Their hygienic design features large radii and smooth surfaces; so-called dirt pockets and the potential bacteria load on the connector don’t have cracks or crevices in which to build. Users can configure the Han F+B by selecting from 25 Han 3A contact inserts for transmitting power (up to 40A), signal (up to 21 contacts) and data (up to 10 Gbit/s). Additionally, there is a Han F+B insert (up to 16A) especially designed for this series.
