Harting introduces its Han-Yellock connector series, which it presents as is aesthetically pleasing and effective for harsh environments. The product features a new integral locking system which incorporates a patented push button technology. The connector allows for simple installation as well as a method for locking the product simply by turning one of the push buttons 90 degrees, thus reducing the chance for unauthorized access without the use of a tool. Pre-wired modules may be installed into the connector body from the front or back and without fixing screws. In addition, the ability to combine potentials and contacts has been integrated into the connector providing functions formerly reserved for terminal blocks. The product incorporates a single gender crimp contact design which eliminates the need for inventory and processing of male and female contacts. The Han-Yellock is available in multiple sizes incorporating up to thirty 20 A connections within one connector.
