(Zhuhai, China – August 22, 2022) PEI-Genesis, a global leader in the design and assembly of custom engineered connectors and cable solutions, is now certified to assemble ITT’s VEAM CIR/FRCIR Connectors in the Zhuhai, China Plant.

The VEAM CIR/FRCIR series provides unwavering power, data and signal while adhering to critical railway flame retardent and smoke emission standards (EN 45545-2, NFPA 130). Derived from the MIL-DTL-5015 and VG95234 specifications, the reserve bayonet series comes in 256 different layouts and a wide range of accessories including backshells and adapters. The positive-lock/quick-disconnect coupling mechanism provides high shock and vibration resistance, ensuring reliable connectivity for bogies, intervehicle junction boxes and transportation control systems. The CIR/FRCIR Series can be ordered in over 10 material and plating options including ITT Cannon’s RoHS and Reach compliant Blue Generation® Zinc Nickel or Hard Anodize coating that provides >1000 hours salt spray resistance.

Alex Tsui, Vice President and Managing Director of Asia Pacific, PEI-Genesis, states, “We continue to see tremendous opportunities in the Asia Pacific transportation market, so this exciting value-add addition to our factory will allow us to broaden our customer reach.” This marks the 5th value-add assembly line for PEI and ITT Cannon in Asia Pacific.
