This document presents design and application information which will allow optimized utilization of filter line wire and cable purchased to MIL-C-85485. Filter line wire is defined and design information is presented. The electrical and mechanical performance characteristics of the wire along with recommended harnessing methods and techniques are also presented.
Wire and cable products progress through a series of handling or operational steps from the time they leave the manufacturer, and until a finished harness or assembly is ready for installation on a vehicle. Throughout these many steps, environmental or processing conditions may be present which can generate damage detrimental to the wire or cable and/or its intended application.
The purpose of this report is to provide information on the results of ultra violet (UV) laser marking and mark contrast measurement of a wide range of aerospace wire and cable constructions, the specifications for most of which do not state specific requirements for laser markability. The contents of this document are for information and guidance only. It is not intended that it be used as the basis for marking process specifications or standards, which are covered by AS5649 Wire and Cable Marking Process, UV Laser.
