Custom cable assemblies typically include a collection of fiber optic and/or copper cables (and may also include power cables), with connectors attached at one or both ends. As a custom cable assembly manufacturer, NAI builds fiber optic, copper, and hybrid cable assemblies, all of which are used to interconnect different types of equipment and instruments. Custom cable assemblies can include fan-outs, breakouts, patch cords, cordage, cable extenders and more. They are often used in industrial, telecom, medical, and aerospace applications for data, audio/video or power applications.

AT NAI, cable conductors can be connected to terminal blocks, and housed in an enclosure. Often referred to as a “box build,” this assembly construction provides easier installation and protects the connections from adverse environmental conditions.
