PLEINFELD, Germany, 29 Oct. 2015. W. L. Gore & Associates (Gore) is introducing GORE Aerospace Fiber Optic Cables to meet the civil aerospace industry’s need for reliable, high-speed data transmission cables in a durable, lightweight construction.

Engineered with a dual-buffering system, GORE Aerospace Fiber Optic Cables are designed to withstand the challenging environments they encounter throughout an aircraft’s service life while delivering excellent signal integrity for high-speed data transmission in wide temperature ranges, officials say.

Typical applications for GORE Aerospace Fiber Optic Cables include avionics networks, digital video systems, cabin management systems, flight management systems, Ethernet backbone, transceivers, weather radar systems, and in-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) systems.

GORE Aerospace Fiber Optic Cables’ robust construction is smaller and lighter weight for improved installation, as well as highly flexible with a tight bend radius for easy routing in confined spaces of an aircraft. They resist crushing, kinking, and abrasion while providing reliable signal integrity before and after installation, officials add.

“Our customers value a fiber product that can survive the rigors of installation,” explains Applications Engineer Jeremy Moore.

GORE Aerospace Fiber Optic Cables complement Gore’s aerospace product offerings, including high-performance quads, Cat5E, Cat6A, USB3.1, HDMI 2.0, and high-frequency GORE microwave cables.

GORE Aerospace Fiber Optic Cables will be on display at APEX (Airline Passenger Experience Association) Expo in Portland, Oregon on September 28 through October 1, Booth 328.
