Gore Adds Round Cable to Configuration Tool
Cable configuration tool.
Elkton, MD — W. L. Gore & Associates has added high flex round cable to its online design tool. The addition of round cable gives equipment designers even more standard cable solutions from the company. The tool provides simple step-by-step instructions for configuring flat or round high flex cables or trackless cable from standard components, with quick lead times.

The GORE High Flex Cable and Trackless Cable Configurator simplifies the cable design process via a quick, streamlined step-by-step process. Users can design a cable and submit an RFQ using the simple configuration tool.

The company's standard cable offering includes all of the components necessary to drive and control a motion system, such as: shielded/unshielded power and signal, video, Ethernet, IEEE 1394 and fiber optic. The High Flex Round Cable is available in two forms: single core with jacket for diameters less than 10mm, and hybrid round cable configurations for combining multiple core components into one cable design. The Round Cable offering is available with a PU jacket for harsh environments and a PVC jacket for low particulation or clean room environments.

The High Flex Flat Cable is also available in two forms: spooled cable for higher volumes to ensure lower unit costs, and discrete length cable built to required lengths with ends prepped for termination and no minimum order quantities. GORE Trackless Cable eliminates the need for cable track, along with the problems typically associated with cable track such as particulation, vibration, weight and size.

In rolling flex motion, the High Flex Round Cables are designed to achieve 10 million cycles down to 2.5-in. (62mm) bend radius; High Flex Flat Cables and Trackless Cables are designed and tested to achieve 10 million cycles on a 2-in. (50mm) bend radius.
