Spring-loaded frame simplifies modular connector assembly

HARTING Han-Modular building block system now includes a spring-loaded frame, making it easier and faster to create a modular connector that precisely fits each application. The ‘hinged frame plus’ for Han-Modular connectors provides an additional stainless steel spring that holds the frame in the open position during assembly so modules can be easily fitted into their proper position for faster assembly and time and labour savings. All module positions (A to F) are evident at a glance; while an additional marking – a black triangle – indicates the orientation for proper insertion of modules into the frame. The frame windows have been optimized so that the modules are automatically centered as the frame is closed. Upon locking, there is a clearly audible ‘click’ and the spring holds the frame securely together – dispensing with the locking tab used in the past. http://www.HARTING.com
