Four Methods to Separate Flight Control Wiring Harnesses in an Aircraft

Posted by John Ashour on August 6, 2018

The F-16 like many aircraft is a “fly by wire” aircraft. Instead of cables and pulleys, the aircraft is controlled by electrical signals. The electrical signals tell the flight control surfaces how to move and how fast to move. There are 5 flight control surfaces on the F-16: (1) leading edge flap, (2) trailing edge … Continue reading “Four Methods to Separate Flight Control Wiring Harnesses in an Aircraft”

INTERCONNECT RELEASES NEW EBOOK!

Posted by John Ashour on June 25, 2018

F-16 WIRING HARNESS TRAINING This eBook is an advanced eBook because it contains more technical information than other eBooks that InterConnect Wiring (InterConnect) has previously released. When a person goes to college to study electrical engineering they might take a course in their freshmen year called Engineering 101. In their sophomore year they might take … Continue reading “INTERCONNECT RELEASES NEW EBOOK!”

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?”

How Many Flight Control Wiring Harnesses are there in an F-16?

Posted by John Ashour on February 19, 2018

InterConnect deals with many different armed services all over the world. All of them are regimented, disciplined, and professional. Although there are many phrases in common for each of them throughout the world, one that stands out is “Bottom Line Up-Front” or BLUF. When commanders get briefed by others, they want BLUF or “What is … Continue reading “How Many Flight Control Wiring Harnesses are there in an F-16?”

What is the Priority List of Wiring Harnesses to Replace on 20-Year-Old F-16’s?

Posted by John Ashour on February 5, 2018

InterConnect’s previous article described which areas inside an F-16 house the most problematic wiring harnesses.  The purpose of this article is to get more precise by listing F-16 wiring harness part numbers as well as the areas they are generally located. InterConnect offers many wiring harness replacement programs, sometimes calling them rewire programs. InterConnect’s most … Continue reading “What is the Priority List of Wiring Harnesses to Replace on 20-Year-Old F-16’s?”

What are the MTBF Recommendations for F-16 Wiring Harnesses?

Posted by John Ashour on January 15, 2018

This blog is a detailed one and InterConnect is going to do something that never has been done before! InterConnect is going to set MTBFs for F-16 electrical wiring harnesses!  If you are new to the term MTBF, please read this previous blog.  If you want more information on why MTBF’s are not set for … Continue reading “What are the MTBF Recommendations for F-16 Wiring Harnesses?”

What is Inherent Viscosity for F-16 Wiring Harnesses?

Posted by John Ashour on December 11, 2017

This is the most difficult blog that I have written concerning F-16 wiring harnesses.  It is difficult because it is a technical subject that needs to be understandable to the average reader of InterConnect’s articles.   InterConnect has written blogs on the benefits of Kapton wiring as well as the problems of Kapton wiring.  InterConnect … Continue reading “What is Inherent Viscosity for F-16 Wiring Harnesses?”

Where are Aircraft Circuit Breaker Panels and Why Refurbish Them?  

Posted by Clare McGarrey on November 27, 2017

In a previous blog InterConnect taught us the difference between a circuit breaker panel and a power panel. The purpose of this blog is to explain where circuit breaker panels are located inside of an aircraft and why you may want to refurbish them.   If this blog was written by the president of InterConnect … Continue reading “Where are Aircraft Circuit Breaker Panels and Why Refurbish Them?  “

What is the MTBF for F-16 Wiring Harnesses?

Posted by John Ashour on November 20, 2017

Many readers probably do not know what the term Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) means.  MTBF is a measurement of the number of days (or years) that a device will fail based on test results or past performance.  In the aerospace industry, MTBF is calculated for just about every piece of equipment that has active … Continue reading “What is the MTBF for F-16 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?”
