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.

Features Benefits
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

Part of our NETflight® Ethernet Cable Series, our high-performance 24 AWG Ethernet Quad Cable is designed to provide reliable performance at extreme data rates in a 100 Ω quad construction. Part of our robust family of data cable products, this cable is:

  • Lightweight
  • Compact
  • RoHS compliant

Tested to 1 GHz up to 100 ft, it provides all of the performance and benefits of previous Ethernet quad constructions, but with a higher temperature rating and faster data rates up to 1 GHz, making it ideal for the harsh environments of aerospace and military applications.

Features Benefits
Faster data speeds up to 1 GHz Supports more applications
Use in extreme environmental conditions Better handling during termination and installation and over long-term use
Reliable electrical performance Customer confidence in overall system application
Cable indentification located on jacket Easily identifiable during installation
Higher temperature range Able to use up to 200 ºC

NETflight® 100 Base-T Ethernet cables with quad construction feature our advanced LTE extruded expanded PTFE dielectric for increased velocity of propagation.
