Spring Series: What Is Insulation Resistance Testing?

Posted by Clare McGarrey on April 7, 2020

Continuing our Spring Series, let’s take a look at what exactly insulation resistance testing is. Every electrical wire, whether it’s in an F-16 cockpit panel, UH-60 circuit breaker, or V-22 wiring harness, is carefully protected with some type of electrical insulation. The wire itself is a conductor of electricity.  The insulation is opposite from the … Continue reading “Spring Series: What Is Insulation Resistance Testing?”

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”
