Elkton, Md. W. L. Gore & Associates (Gore) introduces the GORE FireWire high-flex round and flat cable assemblies for motion control and vision systems.
Targeting lost data prevention or data integrity applications, the GORE FireWire high-flex round and flat cable assemblies are said to maintain stable attenuation over the flex life and will flex with no bit errors or loss of data. These cable assemblies have been tested to achieve 5 million cycles in rolling flex motions on a bend radius of 50 mm and 20 million cycles in rolling flex motions on a bend radius of 20 mm. Both cables experienced minimal change in insertion loss and impedance during these tests, said the company.
Available in 2-m, 3-m, 4.5-m and 7.7-m lengths, the maximum use length for the FireWire high-flex cable assemblies is calculated by the attenuation value of the cable during flex. The assemblies will provide reliable data transmission during flexing and can also be used when systems demand longer length cable, said the company.
These assemblies are customizable. Click the links for more information about the FireWire high-flex flat cable assemblies and high-flex round cable assemblies.
