Cable assembly for your customized system solution

Get everything you need from a single source! To create a connector system that is right for you, we ensure the optimal interaction of three central components: the ODU Connectors, the optimal termination technology, and a suitable cable. For example, for an application involving high currents or temperatures as well as high‐speed data transmission, whereby reliable tightness is also important, it is not enough to simply offer a high‐quality connector – and disregard the associated termination technology or cable assembly. A connector can only meet the requirements for your application in combination with the right cable.

Everything you need from a single source

Thanks to our in‐house expertise, we provide you with the complete package

Our efficient overall process for you!

Through our many years of experience, we implement high‐quality cable assemblies that undergo a 100% final inspection. We produce molded connectors using the silicone, hotmelt, or high‐pressure processes – precisely tailored to your requirements. We thus produce reliable and durable complete systems in partnership with leading cable manufacturers. Furthermore, you always have a single point of contact – from the conceptual design to the final implementation.

Fast delivery of system solutions

To ensure that we can quickly build samples or prototypes, we carry a large selection of cables and third‐party products in stock, which are immediately available for further processing. This saves you time and resources during the design and implementation phases of your projects.

Customized overmoldings for small series

Flexible overmoldings: As a special feature in the field of cable assembly, we offer overmoldings for prototypes and small series in custom shapes. We can thus ensure extreme flexibility with short lead times and low prices. We ensure worldwide availability thanks to state‐of‐the‐art manufacturing facilities at all locations.

  • Prototype tool: up to 1,000 pieces
  • Small‐series tool: up to 5,000 pieces
  • Large‐series tool: from 5,000 pieces

We work with you to develop a solution that perfectly meets your requirements. From planning and production to cable assembly: We combine all competencies under one roof and can also implement customized solutions for your project.

FAQ about cable assembly

  • For which ODU products do you offer cable assembly?

    Our circular connectors, modular connectors, and customized solutions are available with cable assembly. We also offer individually assembled electrical contacts.

  • What are the requirements for cable assembly at ODU?

    If an ODU Connector is used at one end of the cable, we generally assemble all the associated products. This means we can also assemble third‐party products.

  • What are the advantages of cable assembly by ODU?

    Above all, cost and time savings! You deal with the same person at ODU when ordering both connectors and cables – for fast delivery with zero stress.

  • Which ODU standard cables can I select?

    All standard cables are available “off the shelf” at ODU and can be found in our Standard Cables and Accessories catalog.

  • What are the advantages of ODU’s standard cables?

    In addition to fast quotations, we also guarantee rapid availability with our standard cables, for example for sampling.

  • Are any other cables available, besides the standard ones listed in the catalog?

    Cables other than those listed in the catalog can be used on request or to meet specific requirements. If necessary, we can find special cable solutions for your custom projects thanks to our close partnerships with leading cable manufacturers.

  • What is the minimum order quantity if I want to have my connectors assembled by ODU?

    From small batches to high‐volume production, anything goes! Thanks to our dedicated sampling process, we can provide prototypes and functional samples with very short lead times. Thanks to our high vertical range of manufacture, we can produce and assemble everything in‐house – from a single source.

  • What are the advantages of a molded connector?

    If a connector is molded, then the design can be optimally adapted to the connector geometry and the cable jacket. Customized geometries and colors are also possible with overmoldings. In addition, they provide improved strain relief and kink protection. In terms of the overall process, these solutions are also more cost‐effective than using conventional grommets.

  • Are customized overmoldings possible?

    Yes, even for small batches, customized overmoldings are available at cost‐effective prices.
