What do Wiring Harness Design Engineers Want in a Software Package?

Posted by Marc Piloian on July 9, 2018

  Well obviously, Everything! But what exactly is “Everything”? Modern military aircraft like the F-16, F-22, UH-60, C-130, B-1B and F-35 are all designed either fully or partially using 3D CAD models. In the case of the F-35, an even more complex approach was taken from the onset – the creation of a “digital twin”. … Continue reading “What do Wiring Harness Design Engineers Want in a Software Package?”

How Many Empty Contact Cavities Should a Disconnect Have?

Posted by Nam Tran on May 13, 2018

Connectors are used on electrical wiring harnesses or panels… and installed in aircraft. Connectors can be round (e.g. D38999 Series), flat (e.g. 16VE0490 Series) or rectangular (e.g. M83733 Series). They’re used to permit connection or disconnection of single or multiple electric circuits to facilitate communication, control, calibration, troubleshooting, replacement of parts and equipment. Connectors have … Continue reading “How Many Empty Contact Cavities Should a Disconnect Have?”

What are Disconnects and Why Do Aircraft Have Them?

Posted by Chris Vardy on March 19, 2018

A question I get asked often is “How many electrical wiring harnesses are in a single F-16?”  The exact number is dependent on when the F-16 was assembled and what country is flying the F-16.  So, what does that have to do with disconnects? It has to do with aircraft maintenance and safety.  The more … Continue reading “What are Disconnects and Why Do Aircraft Have Them?”

Why is MTBF Not Determined for Aircraft Electrical Wiring Harnesses?

Posted by John Ashour on December 18, 2017

InterConnect’s blog entitled “What is Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) for F-16 Wiring Harnesses?” provides details about what MTBF is and why it is important.  The purpose of this blog is to explain reasons why MTBF is not determined for aircraft electrical wiring harnesses including the F-16. Before we delve into this discussion more, there … Continue reading “Why is MTBF Not Determined for Aircraft Electrical Wiring Harnesses?”

What are the Ten Most Problematic Areas for Kapton Wiring Inside an F-16?

Posted by John Ashour on November 13, 2017

Like most airplanes, the F-16 is made up of four basic structures: (1) fuselage, (2) wings, (3) horizontal tail, and (4) vertical tail.  Inside each of these structures are smaller sections that house: (a) other structures such as bulkheads, (b) equipment (both electrical and mechanical), (3) tubing/ducting, and (4) electrical wiring harnesses.   Tubing/ducting and electrical … Continue reading “What are the Ten Most Problematic Areas for Kapton Wiring Inside an F-16?”

How Often Should Relay Panels Be Refurbished or Replaced?

Posted by John Ashour on October 3, 2017

There are 4 main types of electrical panels in an F-16: (1) Cockpit, (2) Power or Circuit Breaker, (3) Multiplex (Mux), and (4) Relay.  InterConnect refurbishes each of these types of electrical panels.  We have been doing this now for over 25 years.  Almost every day an F-16 electrical panel arrives for repair or refurbishment. … Continue reading “How Often Should Relay Panels Be Refurbished or Replaced?”
