Custom Military Wire Harness & Custom Military Cable Assemblies Manufacturer

Defence & Military branches all over the world depend on reliable, high quality wire harness assemblies, custom cable assemblies and other interconnect solutions.

They also require higher capabilities than what a typical ‘off-the-shelf’ cable assembly can deliver, to ensure that the Military applications and systems they are used in do not fail in the field when they are counted on the most.

From transportation (on land or in the air, water, or space) to satellite & communications to power transmission, medical, robotics, and more, defence and military programs have an extensive diverse range of different systems that need military cable assemblies manufactured specifically for their unique application. It is also critical to consider the environmental conditions that these interconnect solutions will be subjected to, which can be harsh and unforgiving.

For decades we have been manufacturing customized cable assemblies, wire harnesses, battery cable assemblies, electro-mechanical assemblies, sub-assemblies, box builds and more, for Defence & Military in Canada and the United States.

We are proven interconnect experts. We have solved some of the most complex interconnect challenges for a variety of applications and systems in all the industries we serve. This is one of the many reasons we specialize in defence and military wire harness assemblies – we understand the high standards in military cable manufacturing, and we understand how critical and complex defence technology and systems can be.

From designing to manufacturing to testing and delivering finished military interconnect solutions, we consistently operate at the highest level of quality attainable:

  • We build in strict accordance with Military Specifications, and in complete compliance with regulatory and environmental requirements and safety standards.
  • We maintain Military workmanship standards. We have trained personnel and certification to follow the IPC/WHMA-A-620 class 3 standard.
  • 100% Quality first time and every time is our measure of success. Data Cable military cable assemblies and military wire harnesses are integrated into advanced systems and high-technology applications around the world. Field failures are NOT acceptable, which demands stringent testing.

Military Wire Harness Assemblies that Meet MILSPEC

Interconnect solutions for the Defence industry must be made in strict compliance with Military Specifications (MILSPEC). These requirements are set at government levels to ensure that the unique requirements of all Defence electrical systems and applications are met and that the systems and applications maintain high quality as well as their functionality and reliability.

Data Cable builds to MILSPEC. We also:

  • Have a proven QMS (Quality Management System) specific to our industry and capabilities.
  • Are certified to the ISO9001:2015 standard (SAI Global).
  • Follow IPC/WHMA-A-620, class 2 unless otherwise specified.
  • Test 100% for continuity and shorts per IPC/WHMA-A-620, Section 19.5.1 and 19.5.2, class 2 unless otherwise specified.
  • Have trained personnel and certification for IPC/WHMA-A-620 class 3.
  • Are Certified to UL, CSA, CGD (ITAR).

From prototype to design to build, we do not cut corners, or skip crucial steps.

Quality Military Cable Assembly Manufacturing Demands Strong Capabilities & Testing

In addition to having some of the most complex technology and systems in the world that are required to operate at higher standards and capabilities, the Defence industry needs these to reliably function under harsh and unforgiving environmental conditions and physical environments.

As an established custom interconnect manufacturer for OEMs and a proud member of CADSI, we have the capabilities, credentials (like ISO 9001:2015) and rigorous testing processes in place at our UL-certified Canadian cable assembly manufacturing facility in Canada.

We take immense pride in offering a full range of interconnect products & services (including Overbraiding) to meet the many needs of our customers, especially those in the Defence and Military industry. We have developed the means to deliver on time exactly what our Defence and OEM customers need and to their custom specifications. Our Value Added Services like Kanban, Stocking Agreements, Technical support, Reverse Engineering and Prototyping not only make outsourcing more efficient, but they also aid in speeding up lead times and ensuring high quality and performance.

Since 100% Quality first time and every time is our measure of success, we inspect every single component before it leaves our facility. Field failures are NOT acceptable, which demands stringent testing that includes testing quality, functionality, safety, and more, to ensure that it meets the unique specification required by our Defence customer partners.

Data Cable – Your Defence Cable Assembly Manufacturer

Military cable assembly manufacturers and military wire harness manufacturers are not all the same. Experience, quality, value added services, capabilities, and testing all matter when choosing a MILSPEC cable assemblies’ manufacturer to outsource to.

When you partner with Data Cable, you can trust that we build to MILSPEC while still attaining the highest level of quality and reliability possible.
