HARTING High-Density Monoblock Inserts

HARTING has expanded the capabilities of two best-selling modular connector series, Han-Eco® and Han-Yellock®, by developing dedicated, high density monoblock inserts for each. With these inserts, a single Han-Eco® or Han-Yellock® connector can replace a bigger connector or multiple units for significant space savings on the device or control cabinet. The new Han-Eco® monoblock E inserts with screw termination, like the existing Han-Yellock® monoblocks, are designed as snap-in modules for fast, tool-free assembly. Han-Eco® monoblocks use the same Han® E contacts with wire protection that have already proven themselves in millions of applications, yet offer up to 67% more contact …
