Metal Clad Fibers for Electrical Shielding & Harness Overbraid

2002-06-06
HISTORICAL
AIR5464
Over the past decade several metal clad fibers and fabrics have been developed to provide aerospace vehicle designers with a conductive, lighter weight alternative to coated copper or steel for shielding and harness overbraids of electrical cables. Several of these candidates have been unable to provide the strength or thermal stability necessary for the aerospace environment. However, the aramid-based products have shown remarkable resistance to the rigorous environment of aerospace vehicles. Concurrent with these fiber developments, there have been changes in the structures of aerospace vehicles involving greater use of nonmetallic outer surfaces. This has resulted in a need for increased shielding of electrical cables which adds substantial weight to the vehicle. Thus, a lighter weight shielding material has become more critical to meet the performance requirements of the vehicle.

Investigation of Whisker Formation on Tin Plated Conductors

1998-12-01
HISTORICAL
AIR5444
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) shall be limited to general information about tin whisker formation on tin plated conductors. It summarizes the mechanisms of metal whisker formation and describes possible conclusions as related to tin plated conductors. It also provides a number of reference documents that describes research and observations of the whisker phenomena, recommendations to prevent its formation and conclusions. The investigation by this task group of AE-8D was initiated by a request of the Naval Air Warfare Center, Indianapolis, Indiana, to determine if the phenomenon of tin whiskers is a problem in aerospace wire and cable.

Fiber Optics Test Methods and Instrumentation

1999-08-01
HISTORICAL
AS16781
This standard gives the general physical, electrical and chemical methods for testing fiber optics cables for conformance with the requirements. It was prepared in order to eliminate unnecessary or undesirable variation in testing procedures. This standard does not include special test methods applicable to certain fiber optics cables which are described in the appropriate specifications, nor does it include all the test methods for fiber optics cable used in industry. In instance of conflict between the provisions of those test methods and those of the individual test procedures or specifications for particular material, the latter shall take precedence.

Fluoride Offgassing in Fluoropolymer Insulations

2012-12-20
CURRENT
ARP6229
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) shall be limited to information about corrosion caused by fluoride offgassing of fluoropolymer-based wire insulation. It reviews published reports of corrosion caused by this phenomenon, describes scenarios where this may be a concern, mitigation options, and references a test method which can be used to evaluate wire insulations where needed.

Sleeve, Protection, For Cable and Harness Protection

2015-12-02
CURRENT
AS60491
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. See AS50881 for aerospace wire bundle protection installations.
