With many decades of unrivaled experience, W. L. Gore & Associates provides some of the highest-quality solutions available today in the modern aviation industry. Among them are GORE Cable Protection Systems for Aircraft. Comprised of crush- and abrasion-resistant materials, they are durable enough to withstand harsh flight conditions, such as fluctuating temperatures and severe vibration, and tolerate complicated routing in cramped electrical systems.
Copper and fiber optic cables are often exposed to demanding aircraft environments, like difficult routing, extreme temperatures, and constant vibration. OEMs and system suppliers are now demanding more protection for cables, so they don't get damaged and fail in these extreme environments. But, they also want to package cables in thinner, lighter materials to save weight in aircraft.
Higher Level of Protection
Built with materials that are extremely resistant to crushing and abrasion, GORE Cable Protection Systems provide some of the highest levels of durability available in the industry today. They can easily handle extreme flight conditions, plus corrosive chemicals and fluids typically used in the industry.
Quick & Easy Installation
Copper and fiber can float freely within our cable protection systems without getting damaged during complex routing in cable runs and sharp edges in airframes. Our cable protection systems are a great deal thinner and lighter with high flexibility. They also offer tight bending capability that is bend limiting, so installers can route cables without exceeding the minimum bend radius.
Overall, installers will find it quicker and easier to route copper and fiber packaged with our cable protection systems in less space without having to worry about breakage or failure, which means less time and money for maintenance.
To view Gore’s best practices for terminating, view the Termination Instructions for GORE® Cable Protection Systems as a guide in conjunction with current backshell manufacturing instructions.
GORE Cable Protection Systems provide aircraft system architects and engineers with many benefits that improve mechanical performance such as:
- higher levels of durability eliminate damage from installation and operation
- resist crushing, abrasion, and other harsh aircraft conditions
- enable copper/fiber to move freely within the cable protection system
- easier routing due to high flexibility and tighter bending ability without exceeding MBR
- save weight and cost due to thinner, lighter cable jacket design
- designed for packaging GORE Aerospace High Speed Data Cables or industry alternatives
