Harting's Han-Eco Outdoor and Han-Yellock connectors are designed to resist harsh environmental conditions while the Han-M has UV resistant seals and the Han HPR is used for demanding environments and wet areas.
Harting has expanded its portfolio of outdoor-ready connectors with derivatives of its Han-Yellock and Han-Eco series that offer enhanced resistance against the elements. The Han-Eco Outdoor, is made of a high performance, fiber-reinforced thermoplastic that is resistant to environmental influence. Profile and flange gaskets of fluorine rubber have been developed to give the outdoor version enhanced UV protection.
The black IP67-rated outdoor Han-Yellock uses an enclosed protected seal design. This outdoor version, available in sizes 30 and 60, features a rugged metallic finish designed to withstand such aggressive challenges as salt spray and industrial exhaust gases.
The Han-Eco and Han-Yellock join two other Harting connector hoods and housing lines that were created specifically for harsh environments. The black, die cast aluminum Han-M has UV resistant seals while the IP68/69K rated Han HPR, which is designed for external interconnections in rail and other vehicles and in other highly demanding environments and wet areas, is made of a die cast, corrosion resistant alloy. It has protected enclosed standard seals with an outdoor-rated surface finish, screw mated coupling and stainless steel locking parts.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
