S&T 2019 – Meeting Report

To get the most from the industry, it is necessary to learn and share with the community as much as possible. Some would call it reciprocity, others, seeking to work to a common goal. Whatever you want to call it, the S&T Electrical Systems and Wiring Inter-Agency Meeting was held earlier this month in snowy Cleveland OH in December 2019. The following are a couple of the areas presented and discussed during the meeting. Read more

SAE Wire and Cable Committee Meeting Update – Fall 2019

The SAE wire and cable committee held their fall 2019 meeting in San Diego this year. As with every committee meeting, a lot of technical areas were discussed, progress was made, and some new ideas/problems are emerged. As we do after all these meetings, we put together a highlight of some of the talking points from the meeting.

Consequences of EWIS Implementation

In June 2019, Lectromec was asked to present at the USAF Mechanical Equipment and Subsystems Integrity Program (MESCIP) conference. With the electrical wiring interconnect system (EWIS) working its way into fleet sustainment activities, fleets now must take and apply the EWIS lessons learned.

Since the commercial segment has been subject to the 25.17XX EWIS regulations for more than a decade, the presentation examined the intended and unintended consequences of these regulations. For those seeking to integrate EWIS concepts into their fleet maintenance practices, this presentation gives an overview of the factors to be considered for your fleet.

Latest Developments in Wire and Cable (Spring 2019)

Wire and cable standards are never proactive, but reactive to industry needs, and as the aviation world moves to high power systems, wire and cable must catch up to ensure the products are available for long reliable service life. Twice a year the SAE wire/cable community comes together to slowly push the standards and industry guidance forward; this year, New Orleans was the setting.

During this three-day meeting, several topics were discussed impacting the next generation of aircraft designs. Here, we cover a couple of these developments.
