The Paris Air Show, Hall A, Stand #3-G203 – OFS, a leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of innovative fiber optic products is pleased to announce an improved performance FlightLinx PLUS Fiber Optic Cable. OFS will showcase the new cable at The Paris Air Show, June 19 – 25, 2023. The cable is designed for inflight entertainment, internet access, networking and display systems used in commercial aircraft. The advanced FlightLinx PLUS builds on the success of OFS’s FlightLinx Cable products. The unique cable design enables reliable and secure terminations, enhanced clamping resistance, and excellent fiber movement under compression performance, during and after challenging airframe installations.

The FlightLinx PLUS family will also include G657.A1 Single-mode and OM4 BIMM fibers. All our FlightLinx PLUS Fiber Optic Cables have laser marked outer jackets that provide dependable product identification and easy traceability.” Mr. Pike continued, “the lightweight cable design also addresses the demand for lighter aircraft and improved fuel efficiency.”
