ESD testing according to RTCA DO-160D, Section 25

1999-06-22
1999-01-2410
Cabin electronic equipment can be effected by electrostatic discharge due to environmental and installation conditions, such as low relative humidity and the use of poor or non-conductive materials for carpets, seat textiles, arm rests etc., which exist in all locations within the aircraft. For ESD testing, different Human Body Models, such as the MIL-STD-833 and the RTCA DO-160D (comparable to IEC 1000-4-2) were applied to the passenger entertainment system to reproduce the same system failures observed by different customers. Comparison of the models showed that only the contact discharge with a modified network of the DO-160D standard is the appropriate test method to recreate the problems observed on current equipment and to obtain reproducable test results. Therefore it is recommanded that section 25 of the DO-160D for cabin electronic equipment be modifed.

Wing Inspection Lights – Design Criteria

2011-11-16
CURRENT
ARP4087C
This SAE Aerospace Recommend Practice (ARP) is intended to cover the external lights on fixed wing aircraft for illuminating the wing leading edge and engine nacelles and the upper surfaces of the wing. The addition of an ice detection system should be implemented when the areas to inspect are not visible from the aircraft cockpit. It is not intended that this Recommended Practice require the use of any particular light source such as Halogen, LED or other specific design of lamp.

An Overview of the EMC Requirements in RTCA/DO-160G

2012-10-22
2012-01-2147
RTCA/DO-160G, Environmental Conditions and Test Procedures for Airborne Equipment, prepared by RTCA Special Committee 135, was issued on December 8, 2010, superseding the previous version, DO-160F [1]. DO-160G covers standard procedures and environmental test criteria for testing airborne electrical and electronic equipment (avionics). The tests specified in DO-160G are typically performed to meet Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) or other international regulations covering electrical or electronic equipment that is installed on commercial aircraft. The tests and test levels/limits (also referred to as “Equipment Categories”) found in DO-160G are applicable to virtually every type of aircraft in use today, including small general aviation aircraft, business jets, helicopters, regional jets, and “Jumbo Jets” such as the newest airliners from Airbus (the A350XWB) and Boeing (the 747-8).

This paper contains RF radiated emission and susceptibility data from passive Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags and readers operating at 13.56 MHz, 915 MHz, and 2.45 GHz. Laboratory test procedures incorporated the methods of RTCA DO-160D (test procedures for aviation electrical/electronic equipment) and DO-233 (test procedures for consumer portable electronic devices (PEDs)). Only one commercially available system was evaluated per established operating frequencies.

ARP4001B
The purpose of this SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) is to describe key features that should be incorporated in the lavatory smoke detector system. Consideration has been given to existing requirements of the FAA and to recommendations of aircraft operators and manufacturers. This document is deliberately not specific in all areas in order to maximize the freedom to use state-of-the-art design and manufacturing technologies. Safe, reliable, and effective lavatory smoke detectors remain the primary goal of the document.

Equivalence of Equipment Environmental Qualification Standards for Civil and Military Aircraft Equipment

AIR6811
Provide guidance for applying aircraft equipment electromagnetic, electrical, and mechanical qualification standards, including RTCA/DO-160, MIL-STD-461, MIL-STD-810, and MIL-STD-704, to civil aircraft certification intended for military use and for military aircraft equipment installed on civil aircraft. The guidance will identify where the equipment environmental qualification standards meet the intent of the civil or military aircraft certification requirements. Conversely, the guidance will identify where the equipment environmental qualification standards have differences that do not meet the intent of the civil or military aircraft certification requirements and when these differences matter based on equipment criticality.

Design and Testing of Antiskid Brake Control Systems for Total Aircraft Compatibility

2008-10-20
HISTORICAL
ARP1070C
This document recommends minimum requirements for antiskid brake control to provide total aircraft systems compatibility. Design and operational goals, general theory, and functions, which should be considered by the aircraft brake system engineer to attain the most effective skid control performance, are covered in detail. Methods of determining and evaluating antiskid system performance are discussed. While this document specifically addresses antiskid systems which are a part of a hydraulically actuated brake system, the recommended practices are equally applicable to brakes actuated by other means, such as electrically actuated brakes.
