ELGIN, IL, November 2014 – HARTING’s new iPad configurator app helps users design the custom,
modular connector from standard parts that best suits their application. By employing this free, interactive,
drag-and-drop app to choose the connector model and size (from select series of popular hoods and
housings) as well as all inserts, users can see their custom connector coming together on screen and
alter the content and layout. During the selection process, both male and female sides of the connector
are displayed. Power, signal, data, pneumatic and blank inserts are available. Once the customized
connector has been configured, the app generates a list of specified materials (including part numbers)
that can be emailed to the user.
Created by HARTING North America, the app makes designing a modular connector a fast, simple task
that can be performed in the field or office. It can assure that when ordering connectors, all part numbers
are correct. That’s not all. Users who want to better understand how much they can save using HARTING
modular rectangular connectors in place of hard-wired connectors can do it with the app’s Savings
Calculator. It dynamically displays the cost savings from connectors that accrue over a period of time,
from the initial investment through up to three subsequent installations resulting from shipping,
assembling and maintaining the machine or system.
The app is now available for download on www.harting-usa.com.
