Harting designs low profile 250A connector for railways

Offering a high-current connector for tight spaces on rail vehicles, Harting has added a low profile high-current connector for up to four 250A contacts to its Han HPR connector series.

Design for high current motor connections in rail vehicles the connector was originally developed for a tram project in Vienna.

In this project the design brief required the connector to fit into the narrow gap of roughly 8 cm between the carriage body and the bogie.

Space is now an issue for manufacturers of rail vehicles due to a rising number of electrical components.
