Electrical Wiring Fuel Compatibility

This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) is limited to the subject of compatibility of wiring as part of aircraft Electrical Wiring and Interconnect Systems (EWIS) installed in and around aircraft fuel tanks.

Transmission Lines, Transverse Electromagnetic Mode

This document covers the general recommendations for Transverse Electromagnetic Mode (TEM) Transmission Lines intended for use in airborne systems (see 6.2.14). For U.S military applications, TEM Transmission Lines shall meet the requirements in accordance with MIL-T-81490. The follow index lists the recommended requirements and methods covered by the Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP):

Etching of Fluoropolymer Insulations

This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) describes the etching of fluoropolymer electrical wire insulations to ensure that all facets of the process from the chemistry to the processing, to the storage and handling are well defined.

Aircraft Electrical Installations

It is the purpose of this document to present design recommendations that will provide a basis for satisfactory and safe electrical installations in transport aircraft. This document is not intended to be a complete electrical installation design handbook. However, the requirements for safety extend so thoroughly throughout the electric systems that few areas of the installation are untouched by the document. It is recognized that individual circumstances may alter the details of any design. It is, therefore, important that this document not be considered mandatory but be used as a guide to good electrical application and installation design. Transport aircraft electric systems have rapidly increased in importance over a number of years until they are now used for many functions necessary to the successful operation of the aircraft. An ever increasing number of these functions are critical to the safety of the aircraft and its occupants.

Recommended Test Fluids for Electrical Components Used on Aircraft Exterior or for Ground Support Near Aircraft

The purpose of this SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) is to provide recommended test fluids for testing of electrical components used on aircraft exterior or for ground support near aircraft. These fluids were selected based on a consolidation of test fluids used by military and commercial sources and on review of national and international component specifications. These recommendations are general guidelines. Safety factors for any unusual testing applications or operating conditions should be given special consideration by the designer. The test fluids provided are intended to be recommendations and are not intended to limit or supersede those recommended by aircraft or ground support equipment manufacturers.

Ultraviolet (UV) Lasers for Aerospace Wire Marking

Ultraviolet (UV) laser marking for aerospace wire and cable is now a well established and accepted process. The purpose of this report is to provide general information on the technical basis of marking systems that apply UV laser energy to the wire surface. This includes materials for UV laser marking; the key characteristics of UV lasers suitable for this application, in terms of the mark process requirements and operational requirements; the various types of UV lasers which meet the general requirements for wire marking; and the generic components of UV laser marking systems. Subjects beyond the scope of this report include other wire marking systems not utilizing UV lasers; legibility; and contrast measurement. The contents of this document are for information only. It is not intended that it should be used as the basis for marking process specifications or standards, which are covered by AS5469 Wire and Cable Marking Process, UV Laser.
