Improvements in aerospace technology and the need for more power performance are driving the demand to update civil aircraft with higher data rate cables. At the same time, cables need to provide consistent power performance and signal integrity in less space.
Well-suited for aerospace harness applications, GORE Shielded Twisted Pair Cables are highly flexible and easy to route in confined spaces of an aircraft. The unique design of these cables reduces overall weight by as much as 35% and cable diameter size by as much as 21% when compared to standard cables. Wire by wire these cables have a direct impact on saving weight.
The excellent signal integrity of our cables can enable utilization of smaller gauge cables in your system architecture. Because of their electrical performance and long transmission distances, our cables can reduce the need for additional signal amplification — further decreasing weight and power requirements.
Reliable Flight Performance
Smaller, Ligther Cable Design
Gore’s innovative fluoropolymer technologies deliver high-speed data cables that are significantly smaller and lighter weight while maintaining reliable performance in demanding aerospace environments, including rapid changes in temperatures encountered during take-off and landing
GORE Shielded Twisted Pair Cables are engineered to perform reliably in a variety of civil aerospace applications, including:
- avionics electronics
- cabin management systems
- digital video systems
- Ethernet networks
- serial buses
GORE Shielded Twisted Pair Cables provide manufacturers with many benefits that improve electrical and mechanical performance such as:
- high-speed data transmission over longer distances, minimizing the need for additional signal amplification
- excellent signal integrity in demanding environments with temperatures ranging from -55⁰ C to 200⁰ C
- unique design that reduces overall weight by as much as 35% and cable diameter size by as much as 21% when compared to standard cables
- highly flexible with a tight bend radius for easier installation in small spaces
