EDAC Inc has extensive experience and success in the design and engineering of economical interconnect products. For the past twenty-five years their North American offices have been creating custom engineered solutions for a wide variety of applications and a broad base of customers ~ the possibilities are endless
Today EDAC combine the advantages of a North American engineering base with an Asian based high volume manufacturing capability. EDAC love different!
Edac and In2Connect are committed to providing its customers with products that are of a high quality, are competitively priced, and delivered on time.
Custom products can often be manufactured at a price comparable to a standard product; within a time window that has about the same delivery as other manufacturer’s standard product plus with a level of quality that exceeds ISO 9001. Edac’s engineering team, coupled with In2Connect’s sales engineering knowledge can take your “need” from a concept to a completed drawing in just a few days and accurate samples can be produced in as little as two weeks. EDAC customers have lots of choices – there are options for almost every component, dimension, material and configuration. The benefit for In2Connect/EDAC customers is they can have exactly the right connector for their specific application, at the right price and delivered in short time. Better still – we won’t need a massive order quantity to build you the right connector for your project. Edac’s custom engineered solutions are also subject to rigorous quality standards, being tested twice, once at the factory and once in Canada – to ensure that products meet rigorous North American and European standards.
As illustrated above, Edac offers a wide range of products including Card Edge, Rack and Panel, RJ45 & Telecom Jacks, USB & Firewire, E-Seal waterproof connectors, PLCC Sockets, D-Sub connectors, Pin Headers and custom cable assemblies.
