Express | CEI

Components Express Inc, commonly known as CEI, creates top-tier quality cabling to interconnect machine vision components from GigE and USB3 Cameras to M12 and M8 industrial cables to Ethernet. Components Express affords us the unique ability to specify cable length and both connectors and even connector orientation for nearly all your cable needs.

The customization allows the cables to work for you rather than rearranging your setup to match “standard” off-the-shelf cabling. Nearly all connectors are available in a 90­° elbow version in addition to straight, which aids low clearance setups. IO connectors with keying features like M12 and M8 can be configured with angles between 0­­­° and 180° from straight.

In addition to a lengthy list of connector options, you have your choice of several jacket and conductor options to support the signal integrity and flexibility you need!
