Tim Miller, Task Force Tips: Remote Control Water Cannon

“The main product you see in the photo is a remote control water cannon that is generally mounted on top of a fire truck. The fireman can move the water nozzle both Left or Right, and Up or Down. At times while fighting a fire, the danger and/or heat may be too much and the fireman is forced to move away from the fire truck. We sell this unit with either a 30 or 100 foot cable which allows the fire fighter to move away from the fire. This picture features a demo unit with a 4 conductor yellow Remke plug but there is also a black Remke cable & connector on the nozzle actuator. We have been buying Remke cables since early 2008. Before that time we had our own custom cable and were installing a 4-pin connector from Lumberg but that was a major hassle.”

Thanks Tim! We’re glad our molded connectors are working well in a product that helps our brave firefighters!

Charles Wood, Dealers Electrical: Welder Strain Relief

“This was a new installation for our customer with SO cord feeding a new welding machine. The electricians like the wire mesh cable grips due to the ease of installation and the versatility they provide in the field. In this case the electrician was protecting the cable feeding the new welder from accidentally being pulled from the disconnect. In the years that we have been stocking Remke products I do not remember any problems with the products we have sold.”

It’s always great to hear that our products do what our customers expect & need! Thanks Charles!

Mike Fleck, GfG Instrumentation: Gas Detection Cord Grip

“The cord grip is installed in the side of the housing so that the wiring can run along the wall or cabinet of the installation. The application was new in 2012. We were using a different cord grip but found that the Remke version was more robust and provided more range of grip for the wiring. Remke cord grips have performed flawlessly. We have not had one problem in the 2+ years of using the product and our end users have zero issues as well.”

Thank you Mike! It’s good to know that our cord grips are working well for you & your customers! 

The Remke Photo Contest will be back in the fall……… take some nice photos and stay tuned! You could be a future winner of a shopping trip on And as always – thank you for subscribing to EVERYTHING’S CONNECTED.
