Han HPR connector provides railway vehicle designers with a slimline connection option for tight spaces in rolling stock.
Harting is further consolidating its performance in the upper segment of its Han HPR connector series. The new Han 22 HPR slim is ultra-slim, while still easily accommodating four 250A high-current contacts. Equipped with a robust HPR housing made of die-cast aluminium, this connector deftly handles the need for the transmission of high power in the underfloor region of rolling stock, e.g. for the connection to the engine.
The high-current connector has been improved as part of a tram project in Vienna. Working in close cooperation with the customer, Harting was able to optimally fit the connector into the narrow gap of roughly 8 cm between the carriage body and bogie. Other housing dimensions were optimised as well, with the result that the space requirement was slashed by some 40 % compared to conventional systems.
Manufacturers of rail vehicles are faced with increasingly less space to house a rising number of electrical components. An ultra-slim product such as the Han 22 HPR slim, with its significantly reduced dimensions, meets this need for coping with limited space.
