GORE® FireWire® High Flex Cable Assemblies
When reliable system performance and equipment uptime are critical, Gore’s cables maintain stable attenuation at longer lengths during flexure compared to standard cables. With a durable yet lightweight construction, our cables deliver a high flex life and a small bend radius without compromising signal integrity — reliable performance that cannot be matched.
Most standard cables on the market today are designed for static environments and, when put in motion environments, they fail to meet industry specifications. Also, the attenuation significantly increases when these cables are flexed.
GORE FireWire High Flex Cables are specifically designed to meet the demands associated with motion control and vision systems. Gore’s cables meet IEEE 1394 specifications and maintain stable attenuation at longer lengths during flexure at 1 GHz compared to standard cables. Our cables eliminate bit errors in moving FireWire systems for reliable signal transmission in challenging environmental conditions encountered in automation applications. Also, the enhanced mechanical properties of our unique materials reduce friction and abrasion, extending cable life and reducing maintenance costs associated with high flex areas of the machine.
Certified according to ISO Class 1, GOREFireWire High Flex Cables can be reliably used in cleanroom and vacuum environments that require low particulation.
