The metal housings in the Han EMV and Han HPR series are now available in versions that enable contact inserts to be mounted from the rear, an option that simplifies the placement of interfaces on switch cabinet walls and increases the installation speed and thus lowers costs in the long term.

Harting has produced other connector types that feature a rear-fit mounting option. The Han-Eco A and B and the Han B and Han M series came out with this installation option (rear-fit) over the past two years. The option is also available for the Han EMV and Han HPR series.

Rear-fit mounting means that contact inserts can be installed in the housing from the rear, which is particularly important for installation in cabinets in combination with prefabricated cable assemblies. Assembling both products is accelerated by using a mounting frame, or the modules can be inserted directly into the housing.

The rear-fit housings are interoperable with earlier versions that cannot be equipped from the rear.
