Fibre optics for long-distance reliability

Historically, fibre optic cable assemblies have been aligned with telecommunications. However, over recent years the technology has found a range of alternative uses, often favoured for its ability to transmit electrical currents over long distances. As the use of fibre optics moves into other industries, the complexity and thoroughness of the application has evolved. Particularly in defence and aerospace applications, the need for high-quality connectors and terminations is essential for smooth operations that deliver reliability and longevity.

FIbre Optic Cables

We offer expertise and practical solutions for fibre optic assembly

There are a multitude of connector types and termination methods, making a fibre optic electric solution a popular choice for a broad variety of applications. Using a global list of approved suppliers, Copper & Optic is able to source high-quality assembly apparatus for fibre optics.

Optical fibre connections

All of our connectors have:

  • A low insertion loss
  • An improved system performance
  • A high return loss (low amounts of reflection at the interface)
  • A reliability guarantee – We follow strict quality management processes to ensure that your fibre optic assembly is fully tested and verified before shipment. All fibre optic assembly facilities are managed under the exacting standards of BS EN ISO 9001
  • Low environmental sensitivity
  • The ability to accommodate a wide range of fibre types – Suitable for both harsh environments and indoor applications. Industries include data and telecom, industrial, medical, aerospace, defence and transport

Available in a glass or polymer assembly, Copper & Optic’s world class optical link systems work towards optimising function, cost and efficiency. Operating since 1997, our experts have encountered a range of projects from standard, mass orders to intricate, specialist assemblies for one singular application.
