W. L. Gore & Associates have introduced GORE High Performance Aerospace Wires, the GWN3000 Series, which meet higher voltages and provide a higher level of mechanical and electrical performance over time in current and next-gen aircraft.
The introduction of the product comes at a time when there is a growing trend towards aircraft electrification. The GWN3000 Series deliver a combination of superior mechanical strength and outstanding electrical reliability without increasing wire bundle size or weight.
The GWN3000 Series ensure EWIS (electrical wire interconnection systems) reliability, increase operational readiness, improve safety and reduce total lifecycle costs. It exceeds new industry standards that require higher levels of electrical and mechanical durability for wire bundles operating in extreme aerospace environments.
“New-generation engines and aerodynamic optimization have lowered fuel burn during the past half century of jet-age travel,” said Jim Carothers, product manager. “However, recent efficiency and environmental gains are incremental compared to the paradigm shift inherent in an eventual transition to all-electric aircraft. That revolution and the near-term steps required to achieve it rely not just on new battery technology, but also the ability to deliver power sufficient to replace current systems based on combustion, hydraulics or pneumatics.”
Gore’s unique, chemically inert, wire insulation does not degrade after exposure to harsh chemicals or humidity. The GWN3000 Series also reduces the risk of chafing, abrasion, and cut-through failures while easily tolerating wide temperature ranges.
