Electrical Wiring Interconnect System

ZONE 2 FEATURED TECHNOLOGY GateLink Pro™ IP68 sealed high-speed data uplink connector


Wired datalink interconnect access to the aircraft from the airline terminal gate supports various information domains and data types including aircraft traffic control, airline information services, passenger entertainment, weather, and so on. Airline operating center applications (flight plans, schedules, advisories) are quickly and reliably uploaded to the aircraft during turnarounds at the gate. Mechanical and environmental damage to the datalink interface is a common problem solved by GateLink Pro. GATELINK PRO APPLICATIONS AND SOLUTIONS
