Meggitt Safety Systems

SiO2 cables

Meggitt Safety Systems SiO2 cable is ideally suited for applications where high reliability and electrical stability are critical, such as:

  • Global Position Satellites (GPS)
  • High energy physics
  • Deep space probes
  • Military weapon systems
  • Downhole measurement equipment

SiO2 cable is mechanically rugged and can endure the most hostile environments without significant performance degradation.

Meggitt cable provides extremely stable performance. The materials are radiation hardened and are thermally stable. Phase and insertion loss are minimally affected even in a cable that has temperature differences of hundreds of degrees from one end to the other. Our stainless steel jacketed cable operates from near absolute zero to 1000 C.

Our SiO2 cable can easily be hand-formed in the field, or we will precision form the cable for "drop-in" installation. Meggitt’s metal-jacketed, mineral insulated cables use significantly less space than flexible PTFE cables with the same electrical performance. The smaller outer diameter of SiO2 cable and the very tight bend radii enable smaller package size, and easier routing.
