Data Sheet: GORE IDC Ribbon Cable - High Temperature

United States

The GTX602 series of GORE® IDC Ribbon Cables are high temperature non-burning cables. These cables withstand extreme chemical and thermal environments, are vacuum compatible, and resistant to aging.


.050" High Temperature Non-Burning Cable

The GTX602 series of GORE IDC Ribbon Cables are high temperature non-burning cables. These cables withstand extreme chemical and thermal environments, are vacuum compatible, and resistant to aging. The cables are robust and provide protection from mishaps during system assembly, operation, and repair.

The GTX602 cable series provide slower crosstalk, higher impedance, and lower capacitance than most .050" center cables on the market. The superior electrical characteristics allow longer cable lengths resulting in fewer limitations in design packaging, routing, and adjustment of cable lengths. These cables conform to UL Style 20453.

These cables are often used in areas subject to soldering operations and field repairs, petroleum environments, high reliability systems, and high temperature applications.
