Fibre optics

Fibre optics

The forefront of fibre optic technology

For long-distance and high-performance data networking, the use of fibre optic cabling to transmit of information as a light pulse along a glass or plastic fibre gives higher bandwidth, higher transmission speeds, they’re lighter, thinner, more flexible and aren’t affected by electromagnetic interference unlike traditional RF coaxial connectors or copper cables. We have long-established relationships with the world’s leading fibre technology specialists and offer state-of-the-art and innovative solutions as part of our portfolio, covering all the main off the shelf cables, connectors, and components, as well as specialty optical fibre solutions and services for harsh and challenging environments.

Our team of dedicated fibre specialists have considerable experience across a wide range of industry sectors, and we can solve your design challenges in any application. We have provided solutions for applications such as military and defence, industrial and commercial, telecommunications, transportation (including aerospace, road and rail), marine and offshore systems, medical, mining/oil, gas, and energy.

Fibre optic cables, connectors and assemblies

Fibre optic cables, connectors and assemblies

Providing high strength fibre cables, connectors and assemblies for use in various applications. Easily meet complex application requirements and specifications and provide faster, reliable connections with virtually zero loss across greater distances.

Our experience and fibre technology specialist contacts mean we can offer you an extensive choice including:

  • Indoor/outdoor
  • FTTx
  • Ribbon
  • Plastic optical
  • Telecom
  • Closures and terminals
  • Speciality/hybrid - industrial and medical grade

We also offer a bespoke manufacturing solution for both single-core and multi-core fibre optic solutions from our custom services centre and manufacturing facilities. With a wide selection of terminations, coatings, buffers, and cabling materials to meet specific conditions such as: abrasion, chemical, and solvent exposure, high-temperature, shock, and vibration for all types of fibre cable.


Fibre optical passives

Passive fibre optics have a wide range of applications including networks, lighting and sensors.

The core component is always the passive fibre which is then packaged into a cable or a fibre bundle and equipped with connectors and various other tools such as multiplexers, splitters, strippers, couplers, cleavers and splicers. 


Ruggedised custom assembly

Ruggedised custom assembly

We specialise in fibre optic and connector cable assemblies for harsh environments and can incorporate a range of technologies such as multi-mode, single mode, expanded beam technology and physical contact/butt joint technology to produce anything from a standard ruggedised cable to a hybrid, ruggedised solution incorporating fibre optics, copper and RF coaxial connectors which is able to carry data, signal and power in one cable.

With our specialist knowledge and a purpose-built fibre assembly facility, you can leverage our engineering expertise to be assured of the best and most cost-effective solutions. With an intimate knowledge of fibre coatings, and access to a wide range of specialist optical fibre cables and connectors for all applications, we can work with you to select the right fibre for your system, define the correct cable and connection system to meet your specific environmental operating conditions and manufacture a bespoke solution within our facility.

  • Plug-to-plug connector options
  • Bulk-head connector options
  • Receptacle-to-flying lead options
  • Housings
  • Plating options
  • Terminations – fibre/copper
