Han® Ex ideally suited for potentially explosive areas

Han® Ex

Han® Ex meets all the preconditions for the implementation of high-quality connectivity solutions in application areas with explosion protection requirements. This includes applications in mining and the chemical and process automation industries.

The connectors are designed to meet the intrinsic safety requirements of the ignition protection class and can therefore be used in explosion-hazard areas 1 and 2. In intrinsically safe circuits, energy is limited in such a manner that even a potential spark cannot ignite an explosive environment.

The Han® Ex product portfolio offers complete connector systems consisting of housings and inserts. The housing‘s alloy was selected so that it can be used in pulverized methane-coal dust atmospheres.

Furthermore, they offer IP protection class 65 in mated condition. The housing’s blue color indicates that an intrinsically safe circuit is present. The contact inserts provide a high number of pins and meet the standards of the ignition protection class even in the tightest of spaces.

The termination technology is the patented Han-Quick Lock® technology.
This allows time-saving and easy assembly without special tools. The reliable and vibration-proof contacting provides maximum safety even in demanding applications. Moreover, the proven crimp technology can also be selected as the termination method, with cross-sections of 0.14 to 2.5mm2 able to be connected.
