Connector Takes New Approach

May 4, 2010
Billed as “the next generation of connection technology,” the Han-Yellock industrial connector series combines multiple unique features, says the vendor, most notably a new integral locking system that uses a patented push-button technology, a departure from the existing lever designs for latching and un-latching rectangular connectors. 
The Han-Yellock is designed for simple installation while allowing a method for locking the product simply by turning one of the push buttons 90 degrees, reducing the chance for unauthorized access without use of a tool. Among other features, pre-wired modules may be installed into the connector body from the front or back, and without fixing screws, greatly simplifying and decreasing installation time. The ability to combine potentials and contacts is integrated into the connector, providing functions formerly reserved for terminal blocks, reducing space, wiring time and potential wiring errors. The product incorporates a single gender crimp contact design that eliminates the need for inventory and processing of male and female contacts. The Han-Yellock is available in multiple sizes incorporating up to thirty 20A connections within one connector.Harting North Americawww.harting-usa.com847.717.9289
