Cutting Tools, Wire, Electrical, General Specification For
This standard covers design requirements, performance requirements, and methods of procurement for tools and associated accessories used to cut aerospace vehicle electrical wire and cable. Aerospace vehicle electrical wire has stranded conductors with protective plating and specialized insulation. Poor quality wire cutting can compromise the performance of wiring.
Prior to release of this document, there was no standardization of wire cutting tools or specific requirements for performance. These tools were typically procured by manufacturer part numbers.
