Gore's New, Lighter-Weight RG Coaxial Cable

Gore's New, Lighter-Weight RG Coaxial Cable

W. L. Gore & Assoc. Inc. has introduced a new, lighter-weight RG coaxial cable for aircraft communication and navigation systems, providing significant weight savings without compromising performance. When compared to standard RG coaxial cables, these new cables reduce operating costs because they are as much as 20 percent lighter with a 15 percent smaller diameter. This smaller and lighter profile coaxial cable still meets the stringent electrical and mechanical requirements of MIL-T-81790 and EN 3475-503. The cables engineered for electrical impedance of 50 and 75I(C) also exceed the electrical requirements of MIL-C-17G.

The special cable design of Gore's new RG coaxial cables facilitates easier routing and improved abrasion resistance for the cables. The jacketing material used in the cable's construction significantly reduces size while maintaining shielding effectiveness, controlling impedance, and withstanding operating temperatures ranging from -65 to 150C.
