Welcome to the Atek custom cable assemblies website, and yes, we know, our website is a bit dated looking. But that’s because we prefer to spend our time working on your cable assembly projects rather than spiffing up the website.
We are located in Orange County, California and have been supplying custom cable assemblies & wire harnesses to customers worldwide since 1996. We provide our customers, who are mainly designers, manufacturers, and/or integrators of various types of electronic devices, with the dual benefits of offshore pricing and onshore service, including great communication and the high level of technical expertise that can only be developed from 20 years of experience.
Our production facilities are ISO certified and our cables are RoHS-compliant and guaranteed to match your approved specifications and samples. We do not compromise on quality – everything we quote and manufacture is made using top quality components, including connector housings, terminals, wire, fuses, tubes, braided sleeving, and other accessories. Whenever possible, we use UL listed parts and materials.
The fact that we do not take cost-saving shortcuts that sacrifice the quality of your cable assemblies is one of the reasons you should work with us rather than going directly to a factory in China. Other reasons include the fact that we are much easier to communicate with and also we don’t “over-promise and under-deliver” on lead times in addition to quality.
We can make cable assemblies and wire harnesses with multi-conductor jacketed cable, flat cable, and discrete / hook-up wire. For applications in extreme temperature environments we can offer wire with expanded temperature range ratings.
The assembly and manufacturing processes we offer include cutting, stripping, tinning, crimping (including IPC/WHMA-A-620 Rev. A compliance), soldering, terminating, splicing, twisting, sleeving, tubing, heat shrinking, taping, and molding.
Need a smart cable with a built-in PCB? That’s right up our alley.
One of our areas of particular strength is automotive aftermarket cable assemblies, including vehicle telematics and diagnostics. We have become a top worldwide supplier of custom cable assemblies for aftermarket OBD-II and Jbus devices (including with built-in printed circuit boards).
But we also do a great job of making many other kinds of cable assemblies as well, including for sensors and instruments, displays, point-of-sale (POS) scanners and terminals, kiosks, and many other kinds of devices and equipment.
Whatever your application is, send us an email or give us a call to discuss your particular requirements. We can work from your descriptions, sketches, drawings, and/or samples.
Working with us will make your life easier, keep your projects on schedule, and result in delivery of both good cable assemblies AND a good experience!
Please note that we generally only do order quantities of over 200.
***INNOVATIVE PRODUCT NEWS***
“SmartSplit” SMART OBD-II SPLITTER CABLE – avoid interference between a telematics device and a diagnostics scan tool when both are plugged into the splitter at the same time.
– COMING SOON –
SUPER LOW PROFILE OBD-II male connector with flat cable for automotive aftermarket applications. This ultra short overmold is great for various applications, including when the OBD-II vehicle port has a cover as well as when connector protrusion distance in the foot well area is a concern (i.e., the “bumping knees” problem).
SUPER SHORT OBD-II DONGLE – our American designed and engineered state-of-the-art tracking dongle with GPS, Bluetooth, and cellular protrudes only 1/2 inch from the OBD-II port, solving a common problem of typical dongles that protrude 1-1/2 to 2 inches and cause driver inconvenience and safety concerns. Great for usage-based insurance (UBI) and other applications.
DOCKING SOLUTION FOR REMOVABLE TABLETS – Federal law mandates for electronic driver logs, as well as the use of tablets to scan barcodes to confirm driver maintenance inspections, is driving the need for removable tablet docking solutions. We have a great docking solution that also includes a smart cable that both powers the tablet and immediately warns the driver with an audible alarm if the tablet has been left behind.
EXTENSION CABLES for CalAmp LMU-3000 series and other modules, Enfora / Navman, and other OBD-II (16-pin J1962) and Jbus (6-pin and 9-pin Deutsch) applications.
OBD-II FEMALE CONNECTORS (VEHICLE PORTS) – we have standard (snap-mount and flange-mount / screw-mount) OBD-II connectors as well as a variety of non-standard types, such as for BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Citroen, Peugeot, Volvo, Jaguar, Land Rover, and VW.
24V / TYPE B OBD-II cable assemblies.
J1939/13 CABLE ASSEMBLIES – wire harnesses using Deutsch HD10 series or Amphenol round connectors, including the new higher bandwidth J1939 type II (green color) Deutsch connectors
RIGHT-ANGLE J1939 – 90-degree cable exit orientation available for overmolded Deutsch connnectors.
MACROMELT LOW PRESSURE / LOW TEMPERATURE OVERMOLDING – we can mold directly onto printed circuit boards inside connector overmolds and inside molded cases and enclosures.
CONVERTER CABLES – we make various types of power conversion automotive cables, such as 12VDC (cigarette lighter plug or OBD-II) to 5VDC (such as USB), and voltage bucking to constant 12VDC.
LEMO CABLE ASSEMBLIES – we offer high quality LEMO cable assemblies at very competitive prices.
EZ-DC INTELLIGENT OBD-II CABLE – avoid hard-wiring to ignition sources and lower your labor costs by using this leading-edge smart cable that automatically tells your device whether the vehicle
engine is on.
PROTOCOL CONVERSION SOLUTIONS – custom engineered intelligent cables for converting specific data from one protocol to another.
HARDWARE INTERFACES AND NETWORK ADAPTERS – super miniature OBD-II and Jbus (J1939 and J1708) with GSM, GPS, Bluetooth (including Bluetooth Low Energy – BLE / BTLE), and Wi-Fi for vehicle telematics, data collection, data logging, and other applications. Various connector and cable configurations available.
We have unsurpassed expertise and experience designing and manufacturing various types of automotive aftermarket straight, right-angle, pass-through, and low profile cable assembly solutions, including:
- OBD-II / Deutsch
- J1962 / Jbus / J1708 / J1939 / CAN / CIA-447
- GPS / telematics / tracking
- Data capture / monitoring / diagnostics
