Extended IS connector family
HARTING has extended the Han Ex intrinsically safe connector family with new standard inserts and housings designed to offer greater flexibility through the provision of additional contact numbers.
The Han Ex range, which is widely employed in the mining, chemistry and process automation industries, is designed to conform with the preconditions for the ignition protection intrinsic safety category, and can also be applied in the explosion endangered Zones 1 and 2. In intrinsically safe electrical circuits the power is limited so that, even if a spark occurs, it cannot ignite potentially explosive surroundings.
