Custom Cable Assemblies

RF & Signal Solutions

meeting customer specific needs for exact applications

As a leading manufacturer of Interconnect Solutions

for both Signal and RF applications, FCT Electronics

also support custom cable assembly requirements

involving both FCT and non FCT Interconnect prod-


Our process starts at design, initiated by FCT or by our

customer. FCT has the ability to model all electrical

performance characteristics if required to validate the

design through computer simulation.

Next, we focus on providing first articles or samples to

provide our customer with confidence in what we wish

to supply them. We are happy to build to print or offer

cost reduced alternative solutions.

Finally we have all the capabilities to launch in the pro-

duction regardless of the volume required, from 10pcs

to 10million pcs.

FCT maintains a North American Cable Manufacturing

facility in Torrington, CT which supports customer

across applications including Telecom, Broadband,

Medical, Industrial Control, Test & Measurement and

Military and Aerospace. The facility is fully capable of

supporting quick turn requirements as well as a full

range of test and conditioning specifications.

FCT also has its own “Low Cost” manufacturing facility

in Thailand and itself can produce cables in volume of

1,000 and up. This facility is fully functional with all in

house cable conditioning and test equipment.

Often, by their nature, cable assembly requirements

are custom, however, FCT does have many standard

well maintain processes and documentation standards

to guarantee the high levels of quality required by our

customers. In addition, FCT does produce some

standard cable assemblies that are both available via

distribution and direct from the factory for both com-

mon RF and Signal configurations.

FCT Electronics is very proud to be associated with

the supply of cabled products to some of the electron-

ics industries major players.

D-Sub Assemblies

FCT’s extensive range of D -Sub’s in both

Standard and High Density support a

wide array of applications, especially

when mixed with alternative technolo-

gies. FCT’s also has one of the indus-

tries best ranges of Mixed Signal Con-

nector ranges.

Power Assemblies

FCT finds that often, many of its custom-

ers also require simple jumper cables or

moderately complex power or signal

harness assemblies. FCT possess a full

array of applicators for Molex, Tyco and

others to support the manufacture of

assemblies with these components.
