Flightlink Fiber Optic Cables Extend Bandwidth And Temperature Performance For Commercial Aircraft Systems
San Francisco, CA - OFS, a leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of innovative fiber optic products, recently announced the availability of two new products in their FlightLink family of avionics cables for use in commercial aircraft systems. In addition to the existing FlightLink 62.5, qualified to the ARINC 802 standard, the new 50µm OM3 and Bend Optimized Singlemode products are offered for increased bandwidth options in system designs. FlightLink OM3 can support 100Gbit Ethernet up to 100 meters, a length which far exceeds typical aircraft optical fiber interconnect lengths. For applications that require single mode performance, FlightLink Bend Optimized Single Mode offers outstanding bend performance combined with standard sized mode field.
All FlightLink cables are now qualified to 200°C and are designed with identical tight buffer construction that eliminates “kinking” which can occur in loose tube cables. FlightLink cables incorporate OFS premium quality fibers, buffer, braided strength members and outer jacket, chosen from our wide range of specialty materials to meet the requirements of this challenging environment.
FlightLink cables can be ordered directly from OFS’s Specialty Photonics Division in Avon, CT.
