High-current connector for tight installation spaces on rail vehicles

07 March 2018

Harting has extended its Han HPR connector series with the Han 22 HPR slim: an ultra-slim high-current device optimised for up to four 250 A contacts.

Equipped with a robust HPR housing made of die-cast aluminium, the new connector is ideally suited to use in high-power motor connections in the restricted spaces available in the underfloor areas of rail vehicles.

The new connector was originally developed for a tram project in Vienna. Working in close co-operation with the customer, Harting was able to fit the connector into the narrow gap of roughly 8cm between the carriage body and the bogie. Other housing dimensions were also optimised, with the result that the space requirement was reduced by some 40 percent compared to conventional solutions.

Manufacturers of rail vehicles are faced with increasing constraints on available space to house a rising number of electrical components. An ultra-slim solution such as the Han 22 HPR slim, with its significantly reduced dimensions, meets this need for solutions offering compact dimensions with no compromise on performance.
