A very wide scope of cable assembly solutions are available from Connect-2 Technology which address many demanding data transmission, I/O and low-power inter-connection requirements from micro-pitch to large multi-pole cable assemblies. The company’s technical and production competence linked with a wide range of tooling, from all popular connector manufacturers, enables almost any type of multi-pole cable assembly to be supplied in any mix of solder or crimp technologies including: -
The company has a wide array of sub-assembly services and panel and box-build components: -
Customers are provided with a considerable resource for the fulfillment of many types of electronic/electrical small panel and box build sub-assemblies.
With a wide ranging skill set and a high level of production discipline the company has the ability to produce virtually any cabling harness requirement from simple panel harnesses to large and complex switchgear looms. Since 1995 the company’s wiring looms and harnesses have been incorporated into many large and small-scale OEM applications. Connect-2 Technology's wiring harness assembly cell can provide additional services to support the incorporation of sub-assemblies such as DIN rail wiring, switches, indicators, small panels, etc. All products are subjected to in-process inspections, and 100% mechanical and electrical quality testing of each and every item. In addition customised labelling and individual packaging to suit each customer's requirements are also available.
Since 1995 Connect-2 Technology has been manufacturing high quality heavy duty power cables, battery cables and meter tails to numerous customers both large and small. Utilising quality terminals and tooling from manufacturers such as: -
to produce a range of assemblies suitable for standard high power requirements through to specific uses in demanding environs where resistance to corrosion and extreme vibration is required. Our extensive range of heavy duty tooling provides us with the ability to terminate single wires from 0.5mm2 to 120mm2 in both solid and stranded variants.
Since the company’s formation in 1995 an emphasis on the production of high quality cable assemblies manufactured within a disciplined and controlled environment has ensured Connect-2 Technology has attracted and retained a number of prestigious customers for assemblies used in demanding situations, such as Military and Heavy Industrial applications. Connect-2 Technology’s cable assemblers are highly professional, fully trained and competent in the multi-disciplines required for working with the premium connector ranges associated with military cable assemblies.
Several in-process inspections and 100% final electronic testing combined with visual inspection procedures together with full document control, provide the high levels of assurance demanded by the sector.
A vast array of diverse assemblies can be produced to include for example Circular, Miniature- Circular, Sub-Miniature, RF & Co-axial in ruggedized and IP rated connectors from manufacturers such as Amphenol, Binder, Glenair, Huber-Suhner, Souriau, Weald Electronics, etc. We also provide additional services such as potting to provide additional sealing and cable strain relief.
Connect-2 Technology is ideally situated to handle all of your custom military cable assemblies, wiring harnesses and heavy industrial cable assembly requirements.
Complete DIN-rail assemblies to individual customer specifications including cutting to size slotted and un-slotted DIN Rail and using component DIN parts from manufacturers such as: - Allen Bradley, Entrelec, Imo, Phoenix Contact, Wago, Weidmuller, Wieland, etc. Connect-2 Technology’s service affords customers the opportunity to make considerable savings in terms of production labour, procurement and the inventory costs associated with stocking din rail hardware. Customers purchase just the complete final DIN-rail assembly under a single part number as opposed to ordering and stocking multiple individual components. The cost savings associated with a lower stock holding and reduced material waste taken together with overall production labour savings are significant.
Both flat braid and round braid options are available with numerous termination options possible to meet your exact requirements. Flexible braid assemblies are above all suitable for applications where vibration or movement is likely to occur - for example aerospace, defence, production equipment, transportation, control panels, door panels, etc. We can provide a wide range of termination options in either flat or round braid to ensure you achieve the correct mechanical bond between the conductor and the anchor point, even in situations involving a very tight bend radius such as confined spaces or were alignment problems occur. If required you can also specify various insulation options for protection and identification purposes.
The company’s extensive cable and wire preparation facilities provide: -
The tooling bank covers a vast range of terminals from manufacturers such as: -
Single wire ranges for automatic processing are from 0.03mm2 to 10mm2 (32AWG – 8AWG) and with hydraulic cutting and termination up to 120mm2 is possible. Many combinations of single wire kits, wire cutting and stripping and multi-core cable preparation are possible in both low and high volumes.
Connect-2 Technology produces wire-to-wire and wire-to-board multi-pole crimp assemblies, in both small and large batch sizes, for a wide array of customers within many industry sectors. The company holds a large bank of tooling as well as 'in-depth' component stock covering most of the major manufacturers, including: -
With years of expertise in many specialist series such as the Molex 1.25mm PicoBlade™ and Harwin’s M80 ranges combined with extensive use of auto and semi-automated machinery together with a strict quality program, terminations are consistent with exact manufacturer specifications.
Excellent flexibility of design is provided from a broad bulk stock range including 1.27mm, 2.00mm, 2.54mm, etc. Many assembly options are possible in both IDC and IDT types including socket to socket, socket to transition/DIP plugs, daisy-chain, split and multi-branch, folded to your specifications and comprehensive labelling solutions. Connect-2 Technology can provide both shielded and unshielded ribbon cable assemblies manufactured to exact customer requirements. The UK production unit can handle small (as low as 25) to medium batches together with high volume production available from the company’s Far East partner.
For a many years the company has experienced a steady increase in demand for custom designed coiled cables (also known as curly leads or extensible cables) for both electrical and electronic applications. Connect-2 Technologies Far East partner manufactures all coiled cables to exact customer specifications with lead- times typically of between 8 to 10 weeks for initial stocks after which ongoing requirements can be supplied via kanban or order schedule agreements to facilitate timely stock replenishment.
A broad range of co-axial assemblies are produced by Connect-2 Technology, custom manufactured to customers exact requirements, for many applications including RF, data, video and instrumentation. Popular types available and include: -
with most cable styles available including all RG and LMR coaxial cable types. Automated co-axial cutting and stripping facilities ensures consistent and highly accurate cable preparation in accordance with connector manufacturer’s tolerances. The company can accommodate co-axial and tri-axial cables of up to 11mm O.D. with strip lengths up to 40mm. Once again Far East production is available for volume production (500pcs +).
Connect-2 Technology has been a supplier of mains cable assemblies and cord sets custom configured to customer requirements since 1995.
