Seconds matter during military operations, so aircrews must receive vital Information in time or risk compromising the mission and their safety. With aerospace wires and cables being key components in aircraft, they have to transmit data as fast as possible on avionics digital networks no matter the circumstances.
Built for speed and accuracy, GORE CAN Bus Cables reliably send high-quality signals for secure data transmission up to 1 GHz. They maintain controlled impedance at 120 ohms in whatever conditions they encounter. The reason is their unique multi-layer construction that provides versatile protection to shield wires from extreme impact. Our aviation cables can endure rapid temperature changes, repeated vibration, rigorous routing in airframes and more.
FAST, TROUBLE-FREE ROUTING
A smaller design is essential for routing and installation where space is limited. Our CAN Bus cables are 40% smaller than alternative designs, which makes them fundamentally lighter. A smaller diameter also means improved flexibility and reduced bend radius for quick routing and installation without any trouble. Maintainers will also like that our aviation cables have a unique inverted dielectric that makes wire prep and insertion in smaller connector systems much easier.
When put to the test, GORE CAN Bus cables for defense aircraft maintain stable communications on avionics digital networks over the aircraft lifetime. Ultimately, aircrews gain a decisive edge and the confidence that avionics transmitting critical information won't fail in the aircraft they fly.
