The connector market offers a vast range of products for every industry. From the tiniest data and signal connections to high power solutions for the most demanding environments, the connector industry has it covered…almost.
Even with such a broad scope of products, there will always come a time when the perfect option is not available. At other times, frustrated engineers can find a tried and trusted connector solution is now obsolete, and no longer available. In these circumstances, engineers are faced with the choice of redesigning their product to use a standard connector or selecting a custom-made solution.
Overcoming the Challenges of Custom Solutions
In a world of mass production and rapid delivery, the idea of a customised design can seem out of place. Customers often assume that a custom product will be expensive or time consuming. However, trying to use a standard product can bring with it problems of its own.
Redesigning a piece of equipment to accommodate an existing connector is not a simple exercise. This might include altering a housing to fit a different connector, changing the electronic circuitry, or even creating a brand-new printed circuit board layout. All these changes will introduce delays and engineering costs that impact the time-to-market.
Simple Changes to Make the Ideal Connector
The ideal alternative is to choose a connector that has been optimised for the engineer’s design. Creating the right connector might mean a simple change, such as an altered pin length, a change in plating thickness or even just a new colour to aid identification.
