Performance made-to-order

Custom multicore cables are unique designs manufactured against specific customer needs for functionality and performance for aerospace, military ground systems, and marine applications.

Power, data, and signal in the same cable. Every year, we custom design and build several thousand high-performance, multicore/multiconductor cables to meet unique product needs. We select from our extensive range of high-performance cable components and jacket combinations to offer solutions which can improve electrical and mechanical performance and reduce size and weight.
