High-speed digital data cable launched to market


Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CarlisleIT) has added the MX10G-24-ALW, a new lightweight, high-speed, digital data cable, to its Gigabit-Plus range of Ethernet cables. The 100 Ω 1-10 G Base-T Ethernet cable features a round aluminium shield instead of the standard copper-based shield, which the company says creates weight savings (a claimed 10% lighter than standard Gigabit cables) without sacrificing temperature rating (up to 150°C) or electrical performance.

“With the ever-present challenge of reducing aircraft weights, demand is rising for lighter constructions that still offer the same performance,” said Allen Schaefer, CarlisleIT’s product manager. “From commercial OEMs to AAM development projects, there is a need in the aerospace marketplace for reduced weight to save fuel and power, as well as a need to support the increasing amounts of data being transferred.”

The cable supports gigabit data up to 250MHz, is compatible with standard RJ-45 or CarlisleIT Octax connectors. It is also ROHS compliant, and meets FAR 25.853 flammability requirements and Boeing/Airbus smoke & toxicity requirements.
