Wednesday, Sep 20, 2017
OFS, a leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of innovative fiber optic products is pleased to announce the launch of FlightLinx® PLUS Fiber Optic Cable. This new cable is designed for inflight entertainment, internet access, networking and display systems used in commercial aircraft.

OFS has manufactured FlightLinx Fiber Optic Cable since 2012 and is now expanding the product line to include a cable design that allows for reliable pull-proof termination during harsh aircraft installations. FlightLinx PLUS Fiber Optic Cable is a 1.8 mm ruggedized single jacket cable design that meets ARINC 802 performance requirements without the need for a double jacket. This lightweight cable design also helps address the demand for lighter aircraft and improved fuel efficiency.

LeRuth P. Bell, OFS Aerospace and Defense Market Manager, stated, “It is critical that data communication on commercial aircraft remains reliable. Once terminated, FlightLinx PLUS Fiber Optic Cable can be pulled on without creating an optical disconnection that would interrupt data communications. Additionally, premium 62.5 µm OFS fiber addresses the industry’s requirement for increased bandwidth,” Mrs. Bell continued. “Plus, the lighter design can help positively impact our customers’ bottom line.”
