Submerged & Corrosive Resistant Connectors
A non-metallic connector that doesn’t absorb moisture was needed by a pool & spa pump company for underwater lighting. They had tried aluminum, plastic and nylon without success, and ruled out nickel-plating and stainless steel for the high cost. Nothing they tried would withstand the chlorine and corrosion from the chemically-treated water.
Remke created a special dome-cap, non-metallic connector made of Valox©, a non-hydroscopic material that does not absorb moisture. Neither the pool water nor chemicals could permeate the new connectors.
Outdoor Weatherproof Connectors
UV-Resistant and corrosion-free connectors were needed for a Wi-Fi routing system that was being installed on light poles and other outdoor structures. The power source, an existing photocell, required a unique connector, with outdoor-certified cables.
Remke developed a molded connector that was chosen over other large manufacturers’ options.
The molded, mini-connector with 3 pins was made of black rubber with a UV resistant black-type SOO-W cable and mating receptacle. This type of cable is UL Listed and CSA Certified for outdoor use with excellent resistance to ozone, weather, sunlight and water.
Heavy-Duty Sealing Corrosion-Resistant Connectors
A large auto manufacturer needed a custom connector for their new electric-powered truck. Light-weight, yet heavy-duty connectors were needed to protect the vehicle’s circuitry from road abrasion and the harsh climate. They connect the battery pack to the drive train, and the drive train to the computer module. A version was also needed to terminate the mechanical stainless steel shielding to eliminate cable damage.
Remke designed an aluminum connector with nickel-plating for a light-weight, corrosion-resistant product that met the exact needs of the customer. It also featured an o-ring to provide a watertight seal, a nickel-plated ferrule to protect the over braided cable and a stainless steel clamp to hold the cable and ensure an environmental seal.
