W. L. Gore & Associates (Gore) introduces its new GORE™ Cable Protection Systems for packaging copper and fiber interconnects in civil aircraft applications. This extremely durable system meets the needs of aircraft OEMs and systems suppliers requiring more protection in compact systems for interconnects installed in high-density data transmission and in-flight entertainment (IFE) backbones.
GORE™ Cable Protection Systems are engineered with crush- and abrasion-resistant materials that provide the highest level of durability and protection available on the market today. Copper wire and fiber optic cables (round and flat) can float freely within these cable systems without getting damaged during complex routing in cable runs and sharp edges in an airframe. Gore’s specialized design also allows installers to bend copper and fiber within the specification limit, generally without exceeding the minimum bend radius — eliminating over bending, breakage and failure. In addition, these new cable protection systems are considerably smaller and lighter weight with greater flexibility and a tighter bend radius for easy and rapid installation, ultimately reducing overall costs.
“Our cable protection systems provide a great lightweight solution to protect high-performance interconnects required to enable today’s high-speed architecture and future designs,” said Jeremy Moore, Application Engineer for Gore’s Civil Aerospace Team.
GORE™ Cable Protection Systems complement Gore’s wide variety of aerospace solutions, including high-speed data cables, high-frequency microwave/RF cable assemblies, aircraft sealants, and more. Gore’s broad catalog of aerospace solutions will be on display at the APEX (Airline Passenger Experience Association) Expo in Long Beach, California on September 25-28, Booth 1113.
