Han-Modular® Connector System

Connectors from HARTING combine different transmission media with different contact types in a single connector

What is Han-Modular®?

With the Han-Modular® series, you can optimally design connectors to supply machinery and equipment. This is made possible by combining individual modules for different transmission media. The connector handles different signal types through the combination of different modules that the designer selects. Modules can also be used to accommodate multimedia types, such as power, signal, and data can be combined into a single connector rather than separate connections.

Han-Modular® History

Han-Modular® History

The Industrial Connector Configurator is a drag-and-drop interactive tool that allows engineers, buyers, sales people and other users to select and customize electrical connectors that are used in a variety of industrial settings – including mechanical and plant engineering, broadcast and entertainment, factory automation, power generation and distributions, as well as electronics and telecommunication.

Users customize the connector by selecting from a variety of featured hoods, housings and corresponding modules. During the selection process, both male and female sides of the connector are shown. Once the customized connector has been configured, the application generates a list of specified materials (including part numbers) that can be sent to the user via email.

To better understand the cost savings over time, users can also input actual connector vs. hard-wiring costs. The application dynamically displays the cost savings over a period of four, different installations, which can also be sent to the user via email.

Hardwiring vs Connectorization

Hardwiring vs Connectorization

When comparing ways to bring power, signal, or data into an application – there are two choices, permanently hardwiring connections or using a connector. When weighing the two options, there are several considerations. The first, and most important, is how frequently the application will be disconnected/reconnected. When hardwiring, each wire needs to be painstakingly removed and reconnected, resulting in substantial labor costs. If anything is miswired, it can take hours of troubleshooting.

Using a connector costs more upfront, but once made, it’s a plug-and-play solution is impossible to miswire and does not require skilled labor. For many, the long-term benefits of using connectors significantly outweigh hardwiring.

Circular vs Rectangular

Circular vs Rectangular

With connectors there are two choices – circular or rectangular. Circular connectors are twisted into place, while rectangular connectors are locked into place with latching mechanisms on either the inside or outside of the connector.

When selecting a connector, rectangular offers substantial benefits over circular. As circular connectors lock into place via twisting additional space for a hand is required. Rectangular connectors can be placed right next to each other, allowing for a smaller end device.

In addition, rectangular connectors significantly lead circular connectors in terms of flexibility and modularity. Rectangular connectors allow for user-defined customization with off-the-shelf modules, while the connector manufacturer must usually design custom modular circular connectors. This results in a long lead times and less flexibility.
