LOW-PROFILE CABLE DESIGN SAVES WEIGHT ON AIRCRAFT.
Data Sheets, 697.11 KB
Aerospace cables must balance rugged design with light, slim construction to deliver optimal performance and easy installation in space-restricted airframes. GORE Shielded Twisted Pair Cables for Aircraft from W. L. Gore & Associates are ideal for most aerospace harness applications thanks to durable construction that withstands rapidly changing environmental factors.
EXCELLENT SIGNAL INTEGRITY
During missions, aviation cables must transfer critical data at the highest speeds and maintain stable communications on airborne digital networks. Otherwise, the entire mission and safety of aircrews can be at risk. Cables must also balance ruggedness with smaller, lighter designs to fit in space-restricted areas and keep aircraft weight down.
Inside GORE Shielded Twisted Pair Cables, low-voltage differential signals (LVDS) maintain excellent signal integrity with controlled impedance, providing data transmission speeds up to 1 GHz. Regardless of the conditions inside or outside the aircraft, pilots and other flight personnel can always count on our cables’ reliable performance. That’s because the combination of durable materials in their construction allows for a higher tolerance against mechanical stresses and environmental factors, like constant in-flight vibration and rapid changes in temperatures during takeoff and landing.
BIG WEIGHT SAVINGS
We build our shielded twisted pair cables in a low-profile design that’s 30% smaller, reducing their weight by as much as 50% compared to standard oval cables. If you compare our design side by side with alternative round designs, you’ll see that our cable is drastically smaller. Plus, our cables work well in aerospace wire and cable harness applications because of their flexibility and easy routability in hard-to-reach places of airframes.
When you want a durable, lightweight, high data rate solution with total reliability during every mission, look no further than GORE Shielded Twisted Pair Cables for defense aircraft.
