The Remke line of PowR-Teck Metal Clad (MC) Cable Connectors incorporate several exclusive design features which make them unique in the armored cable connector market.
The PowR-Lock™ Grounding Seal is an exclusive design that features stainless steel tines that ground the connector to the armored cable. It provides 360º strain relief and an environmental seal that meets or exceeds UL & CSA requirements.
One-piece compact design is another feature of the Remke MC Cable Connector. Their size is smaller in profile and width than other similar connectors which provides both easier installation in tight spaces and close spacing of connectors.
They also feature an embedded Viton® O-Ring that ensures a watertight and corrosion-resistant termination seal. MC Cable Connectors meet CSA standards for raintight armored cable fittings, are rated NEMA 4 and IP 65, and are available in aluminum, nickel plated aluminum and stainless steel for the utmost flexibility in accommodating a wide variety of applications and cable.
Remke MC Cable Connectors enable users to terminate armored cable at control centers and panel boards, junction boxes and enclosures for motor control and electrical distribution equipment.
They are ideal for use in a wide variety of industries including electric power generating stations & substations, waste/wastewater treatment facilities, petroleum refineries, pulp & paper mills, chemical & petrochemical plants, mining, automotive manufacturing, food processing plants, offshore drilling platforms and in grain handling and storage facilities.
With Remke’s MC Cable Connectors there is no disassembly making installations simpler and faster. A neoprene bushing provides superior pull-out and sealing protection, and there are no sharp edges which might damage the insulation or conductors.
These connectors can be used indoors or outdoors for vertical or horizontal cable runs in either wet or dry locations. They are also suited for use in hazardous locations when used in combination with a Certified Class I hazardous location sealing fitting.
In corrosive environments, standard metal fittings will corrode resulting in frequent replacements, downtime and increased costs. But using Remke Stainless Steel Liquidtight Connectors solves those problems.
For use in wet or dry locations, Remke Stainless Steel Liquidtight Connectors seal against dust, dirt, oil, water, chemicals and other corrosive elements.
They are ideally suited for OEM and MRO applications known for their corrosive and abusive environments including:

We now offer sizes up to 4-inches in 3 different materials – aluminum, nickel-plated aluminum and stainless steel. All sizes of Remke MC Cable Connectors, from 1/2” to 4” are Made In the USA and are in stock.
A key difference between the Remke MC Cable Connector and competitor versions is our PowR-Lock™ Grounding Seal. The 1-piece construction of the grounding tines and the bushing - an exclusive Remke design - means that the seal can’t come apart and won’t get lost in the field. The PowR-Lock Grounding Seal is also smaller in profile and width than those from other manufacturers making it a better fit in tight spaces.
Labor & cost savings are another advantage for those using jacketed cable and Remke MC Cable Connectors. Savings upward of 50% can be realized on the total installation cost versus pipe & wire.
Remke MC Cable Connectors form a watertight seal around the cable and at the enclosure entry for control centers, panel boards, junction boxes, motor control & electrical distribution equipment.
