TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, is expanding its cable assembly portfolio to include off-the-shelf circular plastic connectors (CPC) and AMPMODU MTE cables. Off-the-shelf cable assembly solutions allow customers to quickly build and test prototype applications with products that have been time-tested in the market for more than 35 years, creating a one-stop shop for initial testing needs and providing customers durability they can count on in a shorter timeframe.

“Both CPC and AMPMODU MTE off-the-shelf standard cable assemblies allow for faster time to market, as customers will not need to separately order connectors, contacts, and cable clamps — instead, all components are included with the off-the-shelf solution,” says Tom Wess, TE product manager. “Furthermore, off-the-shelf solutions reduce installation time and offer a cost-effective option for cable assembly.”

Off-the-shelf cables help engineers and distributors identify quick and durable solutions for cable assembly prototyping needs, as TE can provide these components within one-to-two days. A shorter lead time contributes to a shorter time-to-market, which means distributors get products to customers far faster than they could without an off-the-shelf solution.


In addition to decreasing time to market, both CPC and MTEs provide rugged solutions designed to operate in harsh and space-saving environments. High-performance materials supply power input and output to and from almost any device, offering flexible options for quick prototyping and testing.


Key benefits of off-the-shelf CPC and AMPMODU MTE cables include:


  • Easy field repair
  • Heat-resistant, self-extinguishing material for added safety
  • Lightweight with space-saving features for harsh environment applications (IP65/57 rating)


  • A strong positive latch helps to avoid unmating that often results from severe shocks.
  • Polarization feature helps to avoid incorrect mating, increasing safety for the operator.
  • Flexible options based on output and volume requirements/specific application needs.
