Modular connectors and wire assemblies are typically used with sensors and control devices that require easy disconnection. Mold-connector and wire assembly solutions are widely available, but standard products do not always fully meet application requirements. In these cases, you need some custom elements.
Modular connectors and wire assemblies can make installation easier, require less maintenance, be more reliable, and have precise application specific performance. And, while many believe that customization is always expensive, it isn't.
Options for customizing molded connectors and wire sets range from simple to complex. Sometimes simple, inexpensive changes, such as changing inventory items with minor changes, can create products that are ideally suited for application. More involved changes may include changing the materials of standard products, threading, electroplating, private label, packaging and accessories. These changes are not costly, but they can make a big difference. Manufacturers can also design fully customized products to meet unique application specifications. This option is the most complex, but when considering application costs rather than just component costs, even full customization can sometimes prove cost-effective.
Each application has its own unique set of operational features that a single product cannot accommodate, which is why so many component customization options exist. The various customization options for navigating molded connectors and wire assemblies may seem challenging, but they don't have to be.
