The Han-YellockÂ® is a completely new connector series
developed from several years of market feedback. The sleek new design is
aesthetically pleasing yet effective for harsh environments.
Han-Yellock combines many new unique features
within one connector, most noticeably a new internal locking system which
incorporates a patented push-button technology and a departure from the
existing lever design for latching and un-latching rectangular connectors. This
new product allows for simple installation, as well as a method for locking the
product simply by turning one of the push-buttons 90 degrees, thus reducing the
chance for unauthorized access without the use of a tool.
The sleek appearance of this industrial product was
conceived with the electrical designer in mind. The product saves applied cost
and reduces wiring time by incorporating several new features into the design
of the connector:
Pre-wired modules may be installed into the
connector body from the front or back and without fixing screws, therefore greatly
simplifying and decreasing installation time.
The ability to combine potentials and contacts has
been integrated into the connector providing functions formerly reserved for terminal
blocks. This saves space, reduces wiring time and eliminates potential wiring
The product incorporates a single gender crimp
contact design which eliminates the need for inventory and processing of male
and female contacts.
The Han-Yellock is available in multiple sizes
incorporating up to 30 20A connections within one connector. The product also
accepts standard modules from the widely popular Han-ModularÂ®
connector series thus providing great flexibility in choosing termination
solutions to meet applications needs.
Han-Yellock is suitable for all industrial markets
with applications requiring a robust connector technology solution.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
