Cable Performance & Specifications

The 120-ohm controlled impedance GORE CAN Bus Cables for Aerospace & Defense offer a slim, light design for improved flexibility and reduced bend radius. Their multi-layer design utilizes a rugged engineered fluoropolymer outer jacket, a braided shield and expanded PTFE/PTFE insulation for protection against the most difficult aerospace and land defense environments. Color-coded inverted dielectric surrounds silver-plated copper or SPC alloy conductors. Our cables deliver other benefits as well, including:


These cables are 40% smaller than alternative cable designs, making them lighter without jeopardizing durability. Their reduced diameters and enhanced flexibility make for trouble-free installation in crowded areas of civil and military aircraft and tight spaces inside defense vehicles.


Suitable for faster avionics and vectronics digital networks, Gore’s cables ensure high-quality signals for high-speed data and video transmission up to 1 GHz with controlled impedance at 120 ohms. Because these cables provide versatile protection to shield sensitive wires from extreme mechanical and environmental impact, they perform accurately, reliably and securely over the application lifespan.


Our unique design makes GORE CAN Bus Cables for Aerospace & Defense compatible with many high-speed connector systems and backshells, like ARINC and MIL-STD 389999 with size 8 and 22D contacts. Contact the manufacturer, such as Amphenol® and Glenair® for exact part numbers, tooling information and termination instructions.

Meeting Stringent Industry Requirements

To ensure durability and offer peace of mind in every situation, GORE CAN Bus Cables for Aerospace & Defense are thoroughly tested to meet SAE AS4373™ Test Methods for Insulated Electric Wire and VG95218-31 Performance Requirements. They also meet the following standards:

  • Flammability: ABD0031 (AITM 2.0005); BSS7230; FAR Part 25, Appendix F, Part I
  • Toxicity: ABD0031 (AITM 3.0005); BSS7239
  • Smoke Density: ABD0031 (AITM 3.0008B); BSS7238; FAR Part 25, Appendix F, Part V
  • Environmental Testing, Jacket and Marking: ANSI/NEMA WC 27500
  • Low Voltage Primary Cable: SAE J1128™
  • Serial Control and Communications Heavy Duty Vehicle Network: SAE J1939™

Typical Applications & Cable Preparation

GORE CAN Bus Cables for Aerospace & Defense are built for a long lifespan in a wide range of commercial and defense aircraft and military ground vehicles, including:

  • Avionics & vectronics digital networks
  • Cabin management systems
  • Controller area networks
  • Data links
  • Electronic diagnostics
  • HD streaming video systems
  • Mission systems
  • Serial buses

Gore’s cables have an inverted dielectric design that eliminates the need to remove several inches of insulation from the end and apply heat shrink — unlike standard 120-primary wires. Sharp mechanical strippers are the preferred method to prepare our cables.
