ISC Engineering “GREEN” for Solar, Lighting and Renewable Energy Projects

Pomona, CA.-April 2009: ISC  Engineering has engaged in a variety of OEM projects  in the Renewable Energy, Lighting and Solar Energy  industries with custom Over-molded Solutions. Common  to these environments are the requirements for  outdoor rated connector and cable assembly  solutions, incorporating IP66 and IP67 performance.  In addition new regulatory requirements for F1 rated  materials combined with the rugged outdoor  environments, creates new challenges in overmold  technology. PV arrays in the Solar require a variety  of interconnect solutions between panels, inverters  and control systems. Overmolding can provide a cost  effective and reliable solution connector and cable  terminations. In addition, many GREEN products are  innovative in intelligent cable assembly solutions,  incorporating embedded circuitry into the  interconnect systems.

ISC has developed a proven track  record to assist companies in the development of  leading edge solutions to OEM challenges in the  interconnect and custom cable assembly industry.

With over 100 years of combined  management experience, dating back to the late 70s,  ISC’s in depth experience in the molded cable  assembly industry is probably second to none. They  are prepared to provide standard and custom designs.  Flexibility and rapid response make their service  unique.

According to Steve Burk, co-founder  and president of ISC, The most common problem  facing the custom overmold community is tying  together the front end of a new product design to  the back end production. So often, the assembly  works, the mold is correct and the part looks ok,  but the part does not work. ISC has addressed this  issue by providing vertically integrated design and  development processes, from concept through initial  production stages, providing turnkey tooling and  product designs that work. This coupled with  Outsource assistance to vertically integrate,  customers can get the best of both worlds. Quality  product development and assistance to develop  manufacturing capabilities wherever it is they need  to be.

Mr. Burk served as President of ISC Engineering, and  has been involved in the interconnect and cable  assembly industry since 1971. He has written  numerous articles on cable assembly and molded  interconnect products and is regarded as an expert  in the area of molded cable assembly technology.
