W. L. Gore & Associates’ Shielded Twisted Pair Cables reduce weight while maintaining reliable signal integrity. The cables meet ANSI/NEMA WC27500 standards for aerospace and industrial electrical cable, type 24, and they maintain high-speed communication between avionics transmitters and receivers. They are made from fluoropolymers that reduce cable jacket weight by as much as 37% when compared to ETFE materials, and 50% when compared to FEP. The materials also result in smaller cable diameters, which translate to significantly smaller, lighter, and higher-density cable bundles. Because of their electrical performance and long transmission distances, the cables can reduce the need for additional signal amplification. They function reliably in demanding aerospace environments.
