Aging Aircraft Wire

Aging aircraft wiring is a problem affecting the entire aviation industry. Lectromec’s evaluation of the 2016 service difficulty reports found that aircraft over 25 years old were more than two times likely to suffer problems with their wiring system. There are tools and analyses to get ahead of these issues. Read more

Getting the Right Data

How important is it to have the right data on your wire and cable products? For those seeking qualification to a product standard, having test data that matches the requirements is important. Without this data, qualification cannot happen. But what about the products that fall outside of industry standards? How many tests are necessary to […] Read more

What Are You Missing from Your Risk Assessment?

Creating maintenance action plans for vehicle sustainment is a heavily detailed process involving the collaboration between multiple groups. If any group has a less detailed (or flawed) analysis, the potential impact could be felt for years/decades to come. A structured process for assessment is outlined in the mechanical subsystems integrity program (MECSIP) outlined in military […] Read more

Top 5 Articles of 2017

At the end of each year, we look back at the most popular Lectromec articles. This year, Lectromec generated a wide range of content ranging from cable testing to corrosion protection. This range of topics was covered in more than published 31 articles, 2 whitepapers, and presentations on the results of multiple internal research efforts. […] Read more

Next 15 Years of EWIS Design

The field of aircraft Electrical Wiring Interconnection Systems (EWIS) has changed significantly in the last two decades. These changes have impacted the design, installation, maintenance, and sustainment of electrical wiring systems on aircraft. For example, increased electrical load requirements, materials restrictions, system safety assessment, and new regulations are just some of the areas that have […] Read more

This range of topics was covered in more than published 30 articles, two whitepapers, and presentations on the results of multiple internal research […] Read more

Standard Practice for Maintenance of Aircraft Electrical Wiring Systems

An industry as broad as the aerospace industry will have a variety of standards and recommended practices. The hope is that each standard brings something new through either a higher level of requirements or by providing better guidance to achieve a reliable aircraft. The ASTM Standard F2799 was written with the intention of being, “used […] Read more
