Overview

EXCELLENT SIGNAL INTEGRITY

In any military operation, cables must transfer critical data at the highest speeds and maintain stable communications on vectronics digital networks. Otherwise, the entire mission and the safety of soldiers can be at risk. Cables must also balance ruggedness with smaller, lighter designs to fit in space-restricted areas and keep vehicle 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 vehicles, soldiers can count on our cables’ reliable performance. That’s because the combination of durable materials in their construction allows for a higher tolerance against environmental factors and mechanical stresses, like changing climate zones, vibration and rigorous routing.

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 wire and cable harness applications because of their flexibility and easy routability in hard-to-reach places of vehicles.

When you want a durable, lightweight, high-speed solution with total reliability during every mission, look no further than GORE Shielded Twisted Pair Cables for defense land systems.
