Off-the-Shelf Cable Assemblies

Off-the-shelf cable assemblies have varying options that are beneficial for many appliances. Understanding their different types will help determine which cable assembly engineers can use for a particular product or installation.

Since they come in different designs, they offer space for multiple applications.

  • Molex connector
  • Cross / replacement connector is available
  • Make a prototype based on your need

  • RoHS compliant

  • Mass production 5-7 days

Off-the-shelf cable assemblies

Off-the-Shelf Cable Assemblies

Off-the-shelf cable assemblies are a group of cables bonded together and connected to a particular type of connector meant to fit into a specific appliance. They are standard products with little or no customization but are a preferred commodity within the electrical, IT, and computer accessories field.

Most experts have concluded that the global demand for the off-the-shelf cable is increasing; it provides different dynamic application advantages to the user and can apply it in most electrical and home appliances.

Different Categories of Off-the-Shelf Cables
  1. Unfilled Ethernet Cables

Engineers commonly use these Off-the-shelf cable assemblies for Ethernet applications. They are light in weight, more flexible, and require little or no insulating materials such as tapes or filers; thus are convenient for use in limited spaces.

  1. Pre-crimped Off-the-Shelf Cable Assemblies

This type is a favorite to customers as it provides many solutions to the user due to its pre-crimped nature; hence users can prototype cables. They contain crimpled terminals with double-ended cable assemblies at the end of the group. In addition, they are built with multiple wire gauges to fit different combinations of pins.

  1. Discrete Off-the-Shelf Cable Assemblies

Discrete Off-the-Shelf Cable Assemblies

This particular cable assembly contains standard cables that enable fast and smooth testing of systems by engineers. Mostly they are double-ended cable assemblies with connectors and are built with vast wire gauges that allow connectors to achieve any prototype need in the market.

They are effectively and crimped adequately in an automated manner that prevents the probability of poor crimping when prototyping, reducing risks associated with poor crimping. Additionally, these cables reduce the hassle and purchasing time needed to qualify a line. Moreover, they are the best fit for prototyping in vast mass productions.

Advantages of the Discrete Off-the-Shelf Cable Assemblies

  • Designed to fit and attach multiple colored cables, therefore, allowing right and proper connections
  • Perfectly applicable in mass productions and developing programs
  • Ready to use in most electrical appliances
  • Provides space optimization and utilization
  • They are a perfect fit when prototyping is needed.
  1. Over-molded off-the-shelf Cables Assemblies


These are joint cable assemblies that are entirely compact and double-ended cable assemblies with over-molded connectors. Additionally, manufacturers design them with vast wire gauges that accommodate multiple connectors while using jacketed cables.

Many engineers widely prefer them since they reduce the charges needed in prototyping over-molded commodities and also reduce the assembling and buying time a cable needs to be qualified.

Advantages of over-molded off-the-shelf cable assemblies

  • Consist of a current-carrying rating of between 5.0 to 80.0A; this is a perfect fit in most signal and high-power applications.
  • They provide strain relief to wire cables and terminals
  • They have separate terminals that reduce the risks of terminal damages during fitting, installation, and mating
  • Have positive latching that protects against accidents caused by disconnects
  • They are double-ended assemblies and thus have varying application options
