Common misconceptions about custom electrical connectors are that they are much more expensive and take more time to manufacture.
But that’s simply not true.
Changing some basic specifications to improve performance often costs just a couple cents more! And by starting with a stock product, making a couple modifications doesn’t take much more time either.
Customize for Environmental Issues
Customization of electrical connectors can make all the difference when you’re working outdoors, with chemicals, harsh elements, extreme temperatures and applications where bending and flexing occur.
A few minor modifications can drastically improve corrosion-resistance and strain relief, reduce particulate, make a connector completely submersible.
Many Levels of Customization
A simple modification to a stock product can include changing out a bushing material, using a different length cable or adding an extra hole to a multiple hole bushing. Learn More >
Adaptations of a stock product can include changes in materials, wiring, threading and plating. You can also change packaging and kitting to get exactly what you need. Learn More >
Design and engineering of a completely custom connector where the sky is the limit! A custom manufactured connector typically involves a proprietary function and usually involves tooling. The Engineer Team at Remke can design and manufacture a custom connector quickly and affordably. Learn More >
Specifications to Modify for Improved Performance
Connector Material can be modified to deal with harsh elements. Nylon, Valox, Silicone and 316 Stainless Steel help seal out the elements for improved performance and reliability over time.
Connector Components and Design can be customized with o-rings that withstand elements, lock-nuts for easier tightening, wire mesh grips for strain relief and multiple-hole bushings to simplify terminations.
Cable Lengths and Materials can be specified to address bending and flexing concerns, and materials modified to beat environmental issues.
Overmold Materials can be changed to provide additional strain relief for severe bending and flexing of connections.
Distribution Boxes are highly configurable to address space restrictions and combat environmental stress.
If you could change one thing about your go-to connectors, what would it be?
