to be attested


Explanation:

Take a look on the following web page wehere I found the same term as yours:
<;www.tnt-audio.com/casse/norh4-html-19k>
I would say, from the meaning of the sentence-"to be expected", however the term in use needs to be written as "to be attested" which in English means "to assure the certainity". I hope it will be of help.

Best regards,
SCOALB

plugs for terminating the power-supply cables


Explanation:
At the most basic level, a power-supply cable requires a connector of some type at each end, otherwise it is simply a length of conductive wire encased inside a protective sheath.

In a slightly different form of the above suggestion, you could write "plugs [intended to] terminate the power cables"..."

Without seeing the rest of your sentence, it's hard to say which form of the phrase would work best.

Hope this helps,
HC
