Engine Intake Manifold

Sometimes known as the Engine Inlet Manifold, the Engine Intake Manifold is located inthe engine and consists of a series of pipes. These pipes supply a mixture of fuel and air to the engine’s cylinders; even distribution is important to optimize engine efficiency and performance. Interplex is well equipped to customize solutions such as sensor connectors and bandolier pins so that combustion engines can run smoothly and safely.

Bandolier Pins

Bandolier pins transmit electrical signals in a low cost, high efficiency manner, and can be molded into sensor connectors, ribbon cables or PCB stacking connectors, depending on end application requirements.

Interplex produces bandolier pins to support a variety of dimensional requirements, plating specifications and application-specific designs. Our bandolier pins are available in either square or round wire cross-sections, as well as numerous pitches, sizes and plating options (full, selective, or un-plated). We specialize in responding to quick-turnaround orders and are well equipped for fast-track ramp-up for high volume production.


Interplex’s Press-Fit technology establishes solderless electro-mechanical connections with plated-through holes on printed circuit boards. These repeatable and reliable connection joints perform well even in harsh environments, and can manifest in a myriad of forms such as connector headers and customized overmolded electronic enclosures.

Extending across a multitude of industries, possible end applications include power distribution, actuator controls, automotive body control modules, solar panels, watches, passenger comfort and infotainment switches, airbag ECU safety solutions, and much more.

Interplex offers a wide spectrum of options: Choose from different materials, plating options, and even designs. From the low force eye-of-the-needle available in various sizes, to the hybrid MiniPLX perfect for high density signal and power applications, and even customizable options for dual-ended/SMT/IDC integrated Press-Fits.

Sensor Connectors

Sensors are the link between electronic equipment and conditions in the physical world. Interplex’s sensor connectors are designed and built to enable sensor solutions in various domains and end applications such as powertrain, safety and steering.

Interplex specializes in developing and producing sensor connectors that support the industry trend of increased sensor content in cars. Being vertically integrated, we are well equipped to turn your sensor connectors into a reality: From core processes such as precision stamping terminals and Press-Fit pins, plastic molding (insert molding and pre-molding), and value-added processes such as welding and plating— we’ve got you covered.
