Tired of waiting unreasonably long lead times or paying premiums for general purpose connectors? If so, this guide is for you:

Lower costs and faster delivery ― two things every procurement agent looks for. Even so, with the rising demand for raw materials like copper, plastics, and other precious metals currently placing a strain on the market, the concept of purchasing passive parts cheaply & receiving them quickly probably sounds unrealistic to most Buyers in today's market.

With tariffs looming and scheduling conflicts for raw materials persisting, it appears immediate action is required to secure adequate stock for new and existing builds. Although prices are still manageable, the costs of passive parts ― namely connectors ― are projected to jump if the demand for polymers & plastic resins do not subside quickly. 

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

Be proactive and let Sensible Micro find a direct cross for your general purpose connector! The vast majority of connectors (aside from High Speed and Optical models) have factory direct, drop-in replacements available at significantly lower prices and faster delivery.  Let our factory engineers issue a drawing and provide samples, making part approvals a snap.

HOW DO YOU LOOK INTO THIS?

Simple! Just click on the logo of the brand you're currently using below, and let us know what you're interested in crossing. From there, our engineers will pull datasheets, compare specs, and test for 100% compatibility

Don’t see the brand you’re currently using?  No problem, send us the part number and we will pull the data sheet ourselves.

You'll get price & lead time comparisons delivered straight to your inbox. That way, you can rest easy knowing you've explored a multitude of options.

WHAT IF I NEED CUSTOM CONNECTORS?


If you're sourcing custom connectors, you can lower your costs and
lead times too. More often than not, quick-turn design engineers are able to match or modify your current connector with a custom part
(at substantially lower costs). It's just a matter of reaching out, and seeing what they can do. With custom connectors, you're able to:

  • Modify existing parts, or start from scratch
  • Create designs collaboratively 
  • Receive presentations of final 2D & 3D models
  • Get a complete tooling schedule
  • Ensure compatibility & performance

WHICH PRODUCT TYPES CAN BE
EASILY CROSSED?


Everything from waterproof connections & modular jacks to RF connectors & housing systems can be crossed efficiently. The only product types that we don't recommend for direct crosses are ultra
high-speed & optical connectors. Otherwise, product types like
the ones shown below can receive drop-in replacements
with virtually zero effort:
