Outdoor Meter Application

Shielded Connector Provides Signal Integrity

The Challenge:

On an outdoor pipeline, a global manufacturer of flow measurement & control products was using a hand-wired connector with one of its pressure transducers. But reliability of the hand-wired connector was a concern because

  • Excessive noise interfered with signal integrity from the transducer to the control system
  • Hand wiring the connector was time consuming
  • Design of the hand-wired connector was not waterproof or tamper-resistant - both of which are imperative in a gas meter application.

The Remke Flexible Solution:

The Remke Flexible Solutions Team determined that Modification Level 3 – A Customized Product Solution was the best answer to meet the customers’ needs.

The Remke Flexible Solutions team:

  • Developed an industrial-grade molded connector that provided
    • Tamper resistance
    • IP 68 and NEMA 6P protection
    • A 360º aluminum mylar foil shield to minimize electrical interference
    • Protection to the housing of the pressure transducer

The Result:

According to the customer, The Remke Flexible Solution “more than adequately solved the previous connection deficiencies and provides additional benefits as well.”
