Modular connector supports compressed air delivery

Modular connector supports compressed air delivery

The Han Pneumatic Module Metal uses robust, durable high-mating-cycle metal contacts that can be plugged and unplugged at least 10,000 times. It means that users can exploit the benefits of compressed air technology in frequently converted production facilities – in order to supply drive units, control units, brakes, holding and unloading units, for example.

The interface operates at a high maximum pressure: instead of the previous upper limit of 8 bars (for the Han Pneumatic module with plastic contacts), contacts can now withstand permanent pressures of up to 10 bars. Pressure loss in the socket contacts with internal valves is half that of conventional pneumatic interfaces, claims the manufacturer. Electrical contacts for the transfer of signals and power can now be combined with contacts for the transfer of fibre-optic signals and compressed air in HMC connectors for the first time, saving users valuable build space and assembly time.
