Off the Shelf (OTS) Cables
Standard Cable Assemblies deliver Off-the-Shelf (OTS) solutions with a broad offering of Molex connectors and a variety of cable lengths to facilitate both prototyping and global production. Prototyping cable assemblies requires tooling to crimp terminals. Therefore, costs generated to prototype a system for UL testing can be significant. Molex off‐the‐shelf Standard Cable Assemblies help solve tooling start-up costs by providing a completed assembly that meets the IPC‐specification design.
Once prototyping is complete, customers typically need to create drawings and assign resources to find a supplier to build cable assemblies for end products. Molex designs off-the-shelf Cable Assemblies to provide 1-source solutions. This eliminates customers’ design requirements and the need to find another vendor to build assemblies.
