Interconnect technologies within avionics are advancing with the more prevalent use of Fibre optic solutions. Carlisle Interconnect Technologies is one of the world’s leading designers and manufacturers of high-performance wire and cable including fiber, RF/ Microwave, specialty and filtered connectors, cable assemblies, complex harnesses, integrated installation kits and ARINC trays, racks and shelf assemblies, and offers engineering and certification services with DER, DAR, and DMIR personnel on staff. For over 70 years, CarlisleIT has been delivering highly reliable products to Aerospace, Defense, Medical, Industrial and other markets. Originally founded as the Tensolite Company in 1940, CarlisleIT has grown dramatically and now encompasses many recognized brands beyond Tensolite, including CDI, ECS, Jerrik, and QMI. CarlisleIT’s commitment to innovation, global manufacturing and continuous improvement through the Carlisle Operating System (COS) make us ideally suited to support your most demanding programs and applications.
Headquartered in St. Augustine, Florida CarlisleIT has operations in Arizona, California, Florida, Washington, Wisconsin and China.
Key features for avionic applications use of Fibre offer many benefits,weight of fibre is far less than equivalent coaxial solution, with much wider bandwidth. Fibre cable is inherently less susceptible to to Electromagnetic interference and cross talk.
CarlisleIT LITEflight™ fiber optic cable products bring the incredible performance benefits of fiber
optic communications into most demanding applications.
