Procurement specification is principally for defining protection sleeves on a cable or group of electrical/fiber optic wires (wiring bundle). Single wire protection depends on the minimum diameter of the wire. Sleeve may be used to protect a wire bundle for a platform installation or for repair of installed damaged jacket or jacket/shielded wire bundles. Refer to AS50881 for aerospace wire bundle protection installations.
The definition of the preferred methods of splicing single core wires and multi-conductor cables supplied on reels by vendors to facilitate their automated processing on wire processing systems to allow continued uninterrupted machine operation without requiring operator intervention.
AS81044 covers single conductor electric wires made as specified in the applicable detail specification with tin-coated, silver-coated, or nickel-coated copper or copper alloy conductors insulated with crosslinked polyalkene, crosslinked alkane-imide polymer, or polyarylene. The crosslinked polyalkene, crosslinked alkane-imide polymer, or polyarylene may be used alone or in combination with other insulation materials as specified in the detail specification.
This specification covers 600 V heavy duty, portable, power, single and multiconductor, electrical cable for severe flexing service (see detail specifications for voltage limitations). The AS5756 insulation system has been used in aerospace ground power applications using 115/200 V (phase to neutral) at 400 Hz AC. Verification of the suitability of this product for use in other electrical system configurations (600 V, etc.) is the responsibility of the user.
