Han® 16 HPR EasyCon: robust connectors for miniaturisation in the rail sector

The new Han® 16 HPR EasyCon from HARTING is a robust industrial connector that has been designed specifically to meet today’s requirements for miniaturisation in the rail sector.

The compact connector housing has been designed to accommodate up to four high-current contacts carrying up to 650 A each, providing sufficient power for vehicle-mounted equipment such as compressors, single-wheel drives and ventilation systems.

Han® 16 HPR EasyCon covers all the essential requirements for a rail vehicle interface. It combines a high transmission capacity in an extremely compact housing with the highest possible number of contacts for the available installation space – all in a robust and reliable design.

The two-part housing provides plenty of space for cables and is easy to install. HARTING also provides accessories for easy additional tension relief and cable shield connections.



In addition to the high-current contacts, the new connector can also be installed with six different Han-Modular® modules – for power and signal transmission, for example. Han® 16 HPR EasyCon is the only HARTING housing in this size with a frame that provides enough room to accommodate so many modules. Users can save a quarter of installation space compared to the next connector size up with this option.

The simple contact retention and housing design enables rapid installation. The hood and mounting housing can be screwed together in a few quick and easy steps. The shielding remains visible to the operator throughout the installation process.

The design of the HARTING shield connection is so robust and reliable that the risk of attenuation loss is minimised.
