Fibre Optic Cable Assembly
Our skilled electrical technicians are experienced in delivering high-quality custom fibre optic cable assemblies to a range of industries.
Historically, fibre optic cable assemblies have been used mainly in the telecommunications sector. However, in recent years the technology has found a range of alternative uses, favoured for its ability to transmit data in high volume over long distances.
As the use of fibre optics has increased, the complexity of the application has evolved. In the defence and aerospace sectors, for example, high-quality connectors and terminations are essential for smooth operation. We manufacture custom fibre optic cable assemblies to suit these applications.
There are a multitude of connector types and termination methods when it comes to fibre optic assembly, making it 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 optic assemblies in almost any industry.

A fibre optic cable is a cable that uses light generated from small lasers to transmit data or power. The fibre optic cables are manufactured using strands of glass, which reflect the light through the cable.
Fibre optic cables are considered one of the safest means of communication. The production of the cabling makes any interception extremely difficult. An attempt to penetrate the glass cable will cause “light leakage” which in turn will cause noticeable degradation in communications. Fibre optic cables also have a resistance to electromagnetic forces, unlike traditional copper cabling which overtime can degrade. Fibre optic cabling is considerably faster than traditional copper cabling, whereby you’d need a substantial sized cable to achieve the same performance. Finally, with fibre optic cabling long-distance communication can be achieved without a loss in signal.
Traditionally, fibre optic cables were used mainly in the telecommunications sector. However, with the advancement of technology, fibre optic cables can be used in a range of applications, including: - Aerospace - Defence - Medical - Marine and naval - Industrial and automation - Transport
