Harting introduces highest density D-Sub connector
It incorporates 21 D-Sub contacts, including one designed as a leading contact.
The connector has been developed to address the challenges presented by harsh ambient conditions where ease of handling is needed in addition to the connector being dust-proof, dirt-proof and waterproof.
It can be used in environments in which gloves are worn: something that is not possible with the conventional D-Sub connector.
The connector (for both AC and DC modes) operates in the safety extra-low voltage field at 50V ac and 120V dc.
The current load capacity depends on the contacts and cables employed; for turned D-Sub contacts for a conductor cross-section of 0.56 mm², the current load capacity at 40°C is approximately 6.5A.
