Building block for easy-to-handle interfaces for energy chains: the Han-Modular® Flexbox.

Han-Modular® Flexbox: Modular connectors for energy chains R

educes the associated construction and connection effort / Less space is needed. The flexible and reliable supply for fast, linearly moving

components of machines and systems is made possible by the Han-Modular® Flexbox – a novel interface in the modular plastic housing system from HARTING. Longer, moving cable runs for machines and machine modules are easier to install and maintain. The Han-Modular® Flexbox makes it possible to sub-

divide energy chains into flexibly manageable and easily replaceable segments. The modular housing concept replaces the previous implementation consisting of multiple individual connections and offers a single plug-in and disconnection point as a compact overall solution. This reduces the associated construction and connection effort, and less space is needed. Fastening elements can be used to join the housings together in different


configurations. As a result, the height and width of the interface can be flexibly designed. The Han-Modular® Flexbox thus fits the requirement profile of a wide variety of applications. The Han-Modular® Flexbox was developed in a co-engineering process with our partner igus. The Flexbox’s housing and other components are made

of high-performance plastic and comply with the applicable standards in terms of fire protection and resistance to environmental influences. The seals on the cable glands are designed for easy handling and are available for cable diameters from 4 to 24 mm. The system is rounded out by integrated strain relief that can withstand forces in excess of 150 Newton. The Flexbox is a stand-alone solution that boasts all the features of housing for industrial connectors. HARTING has succeeded in continuing the modularity inside the housing as well. Nearly all the Han-Modular®

portfolio - which features more than 100 modules for transmitting currents, signals and data, as well as compressed air and fibre-optic signals - can be used in the Flexbox. This results in almost endless combination possibilities when it comes to implementing the right interface for every application. A plastic frame enables integration of the Han-Modular® modules in the Flexbox. Currently, a maximum of four modules can fit in one frame. The connections in the Han-Modular® Flexbox are

securely protected against environmental influences such as water and dust. Screw locks in different designs ensure tightness.
