Since the aerospace market is always looking to reduce weight on aircrafts, Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CarlisleIT) NPD Engineering has developed a new 100 Ω quad Ethernet cable to minimize weight. By using an aluminum round shield in place of the standard tin shield, the new cable design allows for a substantial weight savings, without sacrificing temperature rating or electrical performance.
|Optimized weight for aerospace applications||Weight savings of 16% over standard quad cables|
|Ease of termination||Designed for compatibility with existing connectors and ability to use in high-temperature applications|
|Meets speeds up to 100 MHz||Equivalent electrical performance of higher weight quads|
|Extruded primary wire and jackets||Allows for ease of stripping and termination|
|Identification marking on jacket||Readable identification for installers|
Jacket is laser-markable
Ease of identification for assembly builder
