Here is what he had to say about the Remke connectors used in an application for machined castings.
Sven Swanson, Electrical Design Engineer at a Connecticut manufacturer of standard & custom automated spray cleaning, immersion cleaning and ultrasonic cleaning systems.
Their systems are used in a wide variety of industries including aerospace, automotive, biomedical and general manufacturing. And their customers are names you know such as Caterpillar, GE and Duracell.
In this application the company had been using Thomas & Betts liquidtight cord grips on a wash/rinse/dry system used to clean precision machined castings.
But they had issues with the physical size of the T&B connectors and ease of use on their equipment. Sven’s company replaced the T&B product with Remke Aluminum Strain Relief Connectors (the RSR series).
Sven said “the Remke straight & 90 degree RSR connectors are much easier to use and fit into tight spaces.”
The RSR cord grips are used to connect cords to small AC/DC motors, proximity/photo-eye sensors and air/water solenoid valves.
His company most commonly uses the RSR-103, RSR-105 and RSR-9105 Remke cord grips.
"This product has been excellent in all aspects – quality, size and price.” - Sven Swanson
