Passengers expect to download IFE content and charge their devices quickly and easily on their portable devices when traveling. Pilots expect to receive necessary data in the cockpit. So aircraft cables need to upload/download content and charge devices as fast as possible.
Added Durability for Lifetime Performance
GORE USB Cables in 2.0 and 3.1 versions equally deliver non-stop signal transmission up to 10 Gb ensuring high volumes of content are uploaded and downloaded in time. Our cable bundles also support the latest power management systems so passengers and flight crews can charge their portable electronic devices quickly and easily. Just as important, they withstand the harshest aircraft environments because of the added durability in the construction that provides enhanced protection for a long lifecycle.
