Overview

HIGH-QUALITY SIGNALS

GORE High Speed Data Cables - Get a Sample for prototyping and evaluation. Find out how Seconds matter during any military operation, so soldiers must receive vital Intel in time or risk jeopardizing the mission and their safety. With cables being a key component in systems, they have to transmit data as fast as possible on vectronics 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 in the field. The reason is their unique multi-layer construction that provides versatile protection to shield wires from extreme impact. Our cables can endure low-to-high temperatures, severe weather, repeated vibration, harsh contaminants 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 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 land systems maintain stable communications on vectronics digital networks over the vehicle lifetime. Ultimately, troops gain a decisive edge in volatile situations because they can rely on electronic systems with cables that won’t fail.

Applications

GORE CAN Bus Cables are suitable for today’s faster vectronics digital networks and other applications requiring secure, accurate high-speed data transfer, like:

  • controller area networks
  • data links
  • electronic diagnostics
  • HD streaming video systems
  • mission systems
  • serial buses
  • vectronics digital networks

Our cables can also be terminated with a variety of leading high-speed connector systems and backshells, like ARINC and MIL-STD-38999 with size 8 and 22D contacts.

Features & Benefits

GORE CAN Bus Cables are engineered with unique features that make them more durable against challenging environmental factors and in-vehicle conditions, including:

  • inverted dielectric design with smaller diameters
  • temperature- and abrasion-resistant materials
  • chemically inert materials

These cables provide system architects and engineers with many benefits that improve their overall performance in defense vehicles, like:

  • high-quality signals for fast, secure data transmission up to 1 GHz
  • proven controlled impedance at 120 ohms
  • versatile protection against extreme mechanical/environmental impact
  • size and weight savings with 40% smaller diameters than alternative designs
  • trouble-free routing with improved flexibility and reduced bend radius
  • easier wire prep and insertion in smaller connector systems
  • compatible with a variety of high-speed connector systems and backshells
