AVON, Conn. – OFS Fitel LLC in Avon, Conn., is introducing the FlightLinx PLUS ruggedfiber-optic cable for inflight entertainment, Internet access, and networking and display systems on commercial aircraft.

The cable is for pull-proof termination during harsh aircraft installations because it helps prevent kinking and fiber breakage during and after deployment.

FlightLinx PLUS fiber-optic cable is a 1.8-millimeter ruggedized single-jacket cable that meets ARINC 802 without a double jacket. This lightweight cable also is for lighter aircraft and improved fuel efficiency.

"It is critical that data communication on commercial aircraft remains reliable, says LeRuth Bell, OFS marketing manager for aerospace and defense. "Once terminated, FlightLinx PLUS fiber-optic cable can be pulled on without creating an optical disconnection that would interrupt data communications."

For more information on this cable contact OFS online at www.ofsoptics.com.
