Harting Break Out

Harting has been a reliable partner for many years when it comes to providing voltage for audio-visual equipment. Even though technology is developing in rap tempo, this type of cabling has proven its usefulness time and time again. All that without changing anything about the cable in recent years- it’s quite clever.

Harting used to be used in combination with incandescent and halogen lamps. In order to be able to ‘control’ these lamps, dimming voltage was needed. Nowadays this is different- dimming voltage only causes damage to equipment, so control is done digitally. The only usable voltage is the standard 230, which is of course also possible with Harting.

Then & Now

As we mentioned above, traditional lighting using halogen or incandescent lamps were controlled with dimming voltage. By adjusting the voltage, the brightness of the light changed- a lower voltage provides less light and a higher voltage provides more. This was controlled by an external dimmer. The dimming voltage was relayed to the lamps using thick cored cables. Nowadays (LED) lighting only functions at the mains voltage- you guessed it, 230 volts. Using a different voltage only causes damage to the equipment. However, you can still use harting, only you don’t connect it to a dimmer, but to a power distributor. Nothing else changes.

Harting Break Out

Fixtures are obviously not equipped with a harting plug, so you’ll need to convert the voltage from this cable to another type of plug before you’re able to connect to it. That’s what this break out box is for. This break out box divides the incoming voltage to 8 separate schuko connections. This amount of connections corresponds to the 8 wire pairs (16 wires) in the harting cable. This way no wire is unused.

You have to take into account that this break out box has a pin assignment of 1 – 9. This is the European standard for connecting the 16 pins. However, there is also a typical ‘Dutch’ standard of 1 – 2. This means that the pins are connected differently. Don’t ask us why. We adhere to the European standard rather than the Dutch standard. This does mean that all equipment, such as break ins, dimmers and dividers with cored connections must have the same pin assignment. Combining different pin assignments is simply impossible and can damage or cause problems to equipment.

Don’t have a break in with the right pin assignment? No problem. You can just rent one from us. Click on the link or take a look at our other harting products at the bottom of this page.
