New FireWire® High Flex Cable Assemblies

Description

W. L. Gore & Associates (Gore) introduces GORE™ FireWire® High Flex Round and Flat Cable Assemblies, providing motion control and vision systems with reliable flex life performance.

The new GORE FireWire High Flex Cable Assemblies should be used to prevent lost data or data integrity issues. When reliable system performance and equipment uptime are critical, GORE FireWire High Flex Cable Assemblies provide peace of mind. Most FireWire cables on the market today are designed for static environments. When put in motion environments, they fail to meet the IEEE1394 electrical specifications.  Additionally, the attenuation increases significantly when these cables are flexed. GORE FireWire High Flex Cable Assemblies maintain stable attenuation over the flex life. They are designed to meet the demands associated with motion control and vision systems. GORE FireWire High Flex Cable Assemblies will flex with no bit errors or loss of data.  

GORE FireWire High Flex Round Cable Assemblies have been tested to achieve 5 million cycles in rolling flex motions on bend radius of 50mm. GORE FireWire High Flex Flat Cable Assemblies have been tested to achieve 20 million cycles in rolling flex motions on bend radius of 20mm. Both cables experienced minimal change in insertion loss and impedance during these tests.

The maximum use length for GORE™ FireWire® High Flex Cable Assemblies is calculated from 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.

GORE FireWire High Flex Flat and Round Cable Assemblies are available with quick lead times. The following lengths are available from stock:  2 m, 3 m, 4.5 m and 7.7 m. Gore also offers the ability to customize a FireWire cable assembly to meet your specific application requirements.

Gore’s world-class flex lab and experienced applications engineering team helps their customers to deliver product to market quicker. In addition, their hybrid cable designs can also accommodate various components to meet specific needs. Customers receive a reliable cable solution that meets challenging performance limits and helps them stay ahead of the competition.
