Cable Assemblies
These connectors can be overmolded right onto the cable for you, increasing the pull-out strength, improving the environmental seal and making the cables tamper-proof. This also improved the manufacturing process by eliminating quality issues associated with in-house cable assembly.  Cables are 100% tested and documented.
