Easy access series of housings for D-Sub InduCom industrial Bus interface connectors

Harting has added three new versions to its Easy Access series of housings for its D-Sub InduCom family of industrial Bus interface connectors.

The models, with 25, 15 and 9-poles respectively and three straight cable-entry points each, complement the existing 50-pole and 37-pole units, each having three straight cable-entry points. The straight cable inputs lead to easier and faster assembly, even under cramped space conditions.

The wide range of standard InduCom housings for 9, 15, 25, 37 and 50-poles means it was already possible to use three cable entries. However, two of the cable entries are located on the side, making it difficult to access the locking screws with a tool. Consequently, it was previously necessary to place the housings next to each other at a certain distance to enable easier locking and unlocking.

With the 37 and 50-pole Easy Access housings with three straight cable entries, the locking screws are more easily accessible. This means the housings can now be sited closer together, significantly easing assembly. The standard housings with 15 and 9-poles offer only a straight cable entry.

The new versions in 25, 15 and 9-poles now offer two straight cable entries in combination with easy accessibility to the locking screws, thus permitting the housings to be placed in very close proximity to one another. This development echoes the trend of miniaturisation and offers the customer valuable space savings in its application.

Harting is offering various versions with captive hexagonal and knurled screws with 4-40UNC or M3 thread. In addition, there are versions with and without an internal grounding block. Naturally, the new housings are compatible with the existing crimp flange / crimp sleeve and cable clamping area.
