For over five decades, Rebling has been known for its high current connectors and its custom plastic molding capability. The technology which made Rebling a specialist in the 100 to 1,000 amp connector field arose from its dominance in the avionics industry where its reputation for reliability continues to be summarized as “35 billion air miles per year without a failure”. Rebling began as a molder of custom thermoplastic and thermoset parts for OEMs in the instrumentation, medical, battery, avionics, automotive, defense and industrial markets and it continues that tradition today. The product design, mold design and manufacturing capabilities that enable Rebling to continually be a valued supplier of molded parts also enable Rebling to be an innovative leader in connector design.
Cable Mounted Plugs and Bulkhead Mounted Receptacles
Rebling is the only manufacturer in the world certified to produce battery connectors for flying vehicles (military, commercial, passenger, cargo, fixed wing, rotary wing, RPAs/Drones). Rebling’s technology, quality and reliability can be summed up in one statement: “35 billion air miles per year without a failure.”
Rebling bulkhead mounted receptacles address key power needs in various industries. As work truck, electrified vehicle, auxiliary power and stationary power applications trend toward higher voltages and currents and faster charging times, improved features are needed to enable the OEMs in those markets to maintain their competitive edge and reduce their end users' total cost of ownership.
Feed Through Junction Blocks, Lithium Battery Terminals
Wherever there is a battery module larger than a loaf of bread, electrical cables as thick as any of your fingers or DC current between 100 and 1,000 amps, you will find Rebling’s terminals and connectors. The optimal terminal is the one that matches the electrical and thermal performance of the cable or bus bar to which it is attached. A terminal that exhibits a 30°C temperature rise at 1,000 amps is unnecessarily expensive if it is connected to a cable that exhibits a 30°C temperature rise at 300 amps. Although this is not a big problem when creating 5 prototypes, it can affect your company’s profitability when your product becomes successful and production ramps up to 10,000 units. See below.
