An image of two partially stripped Gigabit-Flexx ethernet cables, showing inner layers.

Key Features

  • Reliable 1000 Base-T performance up to 100 MHz at distances of up to 80m
  • Bend radius of 0.75in (19.0mm), making them extremely flexible and easy to route in tight spaces
  • More durable, smaller in overall size and lighter in weight than comparable cables
  • Applications include in-flight entertainments systems, cabin management systems and ground vehicle bus
  • Meet the flammability requirements of FAR 25.853 and the smoke and toxicity requirements of Boeing and Airbus ABD0031
