DeLand, Fla. – Intellitec Products, LLC has announced the introduction of the Assembled Solutions product line in response to RV and Specialty Vehicle manufacturers’ need to reduce costs, labor and cycle time.
Intellitec integrates all the control devices onto a single custom pretested panel for easy installation. Custom harnesses are also part of the Assembled Solutions services being offered.
“Our customers have come to us looking for ways to reduce labor and manufacturing cycle time to meet their growing demand,” Intellitec President Ned Schiff says. “Our ability to design and provide a fully tested integrated system provides a significant cost and cycle time savings while freeing up labor to produce more vehicles.”
Intellitec traditionally supplied individual components to the customers who were responsible for the wiring and interfacing. Providing a complete “Plug and Play” tested system dramatically simplifies the OEM manufacturer’s processes. This program includes the new Road Commander multiplexing system, battery management products, energy management and other control / monitoring devices.
“We have a tremendous amount of available manufacturing capacity, experience in systems integration and harness manufacturing, and ability to provide local stock through our partnership with Wesco,” Schiff says. “We can provide cost effective solutions for both low and high volume demand.”
