Ultraviolet (UV) Laser Marking Performance of Aerospace Wire Constructions

2009-05-28
CURRENT
AIR5558
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.

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

1998-04-01
HISTORICAL
ARP5062
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.

Marking of Electrical Insulating Materials

2004-05-25
CURRENT
AS5942
This specification establishes the performance requirements for the identification of wire and cable by indirect markings that have been applied to electrical insulating materials including heat shrink sleeving, wrap around labels and “tie-on” tags as well as any other types of materials used for indirect marking. This specification covers the processes used to mark these materials, including impact ink marking, thermal transfer, hot stamp, and lasers, etc. This specification does not cover the direct marking on insulated electrical wires and cables.

Legibility of Print on Aerospace Wires and Cables

2005-11-04
CURRENT
ARP5607A
The purpose of this report is to provide recommendations for marking wire and cable insulations to meet legibility requirements. This information is generic and applies to any type of wire marking system, such as an ultraviolet (UV) laser marking system or an inkjet or other ink based wire marking system. This report is limited to the legibility of human-readable characters and does not address bar code or other machine-readable symbols. In this report, the term wire refers to jacketed cables and fiber optic cables in addition to individual wires. This report defines the factors that affect the legibility of markings on wiring. Two generic types of variables affect legibility: stimulus variables and environmental variables. Stimulus variables are those factors involving the mark itself.

The purpose of this report is to provide recommendations for producing legible marks on wire and cable insulations. This information is generic and applies to any type of wire marking system, such as an ultraviolet (UV) laser marking system or an inkjet or other ink based wire marking system. This report is limited to the legibility of human-readable characters and does not address bar code or other machine-readable symbols. In this report, the term wire refers to jacketed cables and fiber optic cables in addition to individual wires. This report defines the factors that affect the legibility of markings on wiring. Two generic types of variables affect legibility: stimulus variables and environmental variables. Stimulus variables are those factors involving the mark itself. This ARP establishes a set of guidelines for key stimulus variables that contribute to legibility and which should be taken into consideration in the course of specifying and using wire marking equipment.

EWIS Wiring Insulation Breakdown Testing

CURRENT
ARP6216
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) identifies the minimum requirements for the testing of insulated electrical wiring for on-aircraft, aeronautical and aerospace applications. The testing requirements defined herein, ensure that a wire fault can be found safely when using a high potential voltage tester (hipot). This test is intended to aid in finding a breach in the wire insulation, and not for the identification of the resistance of the insulation. The test method defined herein is limited to equipment which ia able to control and limit the DC output to 1500 VDC maximum. This type of wire dielectric tester is typically designed to trip on current leakage and not necessarily on arc detection. This test method is solely designed to identify gross/large wire insulation damage or degradation. For additional related information on this topic and related test methods, refer to the documents cited in Section 2.
