Custom OBDII Connectors.

Please take a moment to study these graphics. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.

Note: At right (top) is an exploded photo of a custom Peake DCX (no affiliation with Diamler Chrysler, stock ticker "DCX"), OBDII connector with a simple five pin and cable configuration. Middle is our "straight out" back housing, showing an area for your customs PCB, bottom of this page is our right-angle back-housing which lends itself to designs where a straight-out connector would interfere with the driver, or adjacent structures.

At right is an example of a back-plane with pins installed. While these pins can be soldered in, the pins in this image are press-fit, which is a much faster operation, allowing 16 pins to be pressed in at once, using a manual arbor press.

Exploded View of Peake DCX

This exploded view of the Peake, DCX OBDII, vehicle diagnostic connector shows the main components to our system. The DCX design lends itself to easy manufacturing of J1962 compatible, diagnostic connectors at your facility, without the need for costly over-molding. The "housing" halves glue together capturing the 5mm cable in the integrated glue sleeve. With little additional effort your custom PCB, like the one pictured below, can be placed inside the housing opening up many product possibilities; such as protocol converter/dongle/PC Interface etc...

Radically Custom

At right you see a case of extreme customization. While we do not offer this level of customization, or the product shown, this is an example of how versatile our connectors can be. This device has three standard right angle tact switches, three LEDs, a right angle 2mm 16 position receptacle, a right angle 2.54mm 6 position receptacle, and a 14 pin CPU.



Low Profile, Right-Angle Approach

So far no one (to the best of our knowledge) has crammed electronics inside our right-angle housing (see image at right) but we are sure it will happen! If you use only five or six OBDII pins, there is room left on the back-plane for circuitry, which opens up the possibility of having active electronics inside our low profile right-angle connector.
