Requirements for aerospace/aircraft wire and cables
Requirements for aircraft wire and cable are more stringent than most other applications. The main reasons for this are the demanding aircraft operating environment, which includes extreme temperature changes, vibration, exposure to aviation fluids and chemicals, and the need to ensure the safety of passengers, crew, and equipment.
Aircraft cables must withstand repeated flexing and vibration and extreme temperatures (-55°C to +175°C). They must also resist aviation fluids and chemicals, including hydraulic fluids, deicing fluids, and fuels. In addition, aircraft cables must be flame-retardant and have low-smoke and low-toxicity characteristics to protect against the spread of fire and smoke in the event of an accident.
To meet these demanding requirements, aircraft cables are typically made from specialized materials, such as high-temperature-resistant polymers, fluoropolymers, and metals. They are also often jacketed with specialized coatings, such as fluoropolymer and Halar®.
Aerospace/aircraft cable assemblies are used in various applications, including aircraft control systems, navigation systems, engine controls, and inflight entertainment systems. They are also used in ground support equipment, such as tugs and fuel trucks.
