Harting’s Han 1A adapts to the requirements of an ever-shrinking device world. Despite its small dimensions, the connector offers powerful solutions for all industrial lifelines. Thanks to the simple click & mate principle, users also save valuable working time during assembly.

The interface uses black plastic housings and can be equipped with color coding. The interface requires little space and is very versatile since it integrates contacts for data, power, and signal transmission. Additionally, the flexible connection technology offers an optimum solution both for on-site installation – screw contacts - as well as for the pre-assembly of separate units – crimp contacts. The combination of few basic elements results in simple and efficient interfaces, e. g. for mechanical engineering, automation, robotics, medical, energy, and traffic engineering.

Typical uses of the Han 1A include applications in which drives, sensors, or other devices must be supplied with power and integrated into communications. In mechanical engineering, the connector provides suitable solutions when it comes to efficiently connecting tools and smaller machine modules such as heating and cooling units, fans, control terminals, lighting systems, drives and vibration conveyors.

The system is flexible when it comes to protection against dust and water as well. Two components are all that’s needed to quickly assemble an IP20 solution for use in protected areas such as the spars of machines and supply ducts. Housing elements and/or single-wire sealing mats create a water- and dust-proof IP65 solution that can be used on e. g. grippers and other robotic tools in harsh industrial environments.
