Here’s what all 4 winners told us about their application photos …
Tony Sponsler, Minneapolis MN – Multiple Hole Bushings in Cord Grips for a Junction Box
“We used Remke connectors for a machine with several cord connected devices that terminated in dust tight junction boxes. Our customer – Total Construction & Equipment - previously used a Thomas & Betts cord grip body but it left the bottom of the junction box looking cluttered and full of holes. We changed to a Remke Aluminum Cord Grip (RSR-204-3 & RSR-204-4) with 3 and 4 hole bushings to bring the cables neatly into the junction boxes. The Remke connectors have very nice machining and are excellent in terms of performance.”

“Our customer, Harvey Industries, makes exhaust ventilation systems. They had a new application and were using a heavy-duty Weidmuller connector but they wanted something smaller and water resistant for a power & signal cable assembly. The Remke Tuff-Link molded connector with SOOW cable & adapter ‘fit the bill’ for both and that’s what we recommended. So far so good!”
Sven Swanson, Jensen Fabricating Engineers
“One of our OEM customers manufactures industrial cleaning machines. They were using straight & 90 degree OZ Gedney cord grips for both the float switches and solenoid valves in their high-production manufacturing facilities. This customer wanted to replace the OZ product with better looking cord grips in smaller sizes to reduce wiring costs and they were looking for multiple hole bushings so they could fit more items in a congested area. We recommended Remke connectors as they provide exceptional quality and make a good appearance on the final product and our customer is pleased.”
Chris Buzas Jr., Solutions Sales Inc.
“Nordson is a manufacturer of dispensing & industrial coating equipment. They were working with a customer in Saginaw, MI on a 7-step prep line to improve the quality of their enclosure powder coating line. In the past Nordson had used cord grips from a variety of manufacturers but now were looking for something different for this new application. We presented the Remke line of cord grips as well as the multiple hole bushings and Nordson loved them! They ordered several types of Remke connectors but primarily the RSP Nylon Cord Grips because of their durability in harsh environments. Nordson is in the final stages of installation of the new line in Saginaw and everybody is very pleased with the performance of the Remke cord grips.”
