Commercial Protocols and Aerospace Cabling: Finding the Right Balance

Sept. 8, 2021
Industry-standard cables may not possess the desired mechanical or environmental performance, especially the demanding requirements for low smoke generation, toxicity and flammability. Learn how to find the right balance!

Commercial protocols in aerospace applications present designers with challenges of balancing the standard against special needs of the application. The standards for these protocols detail electrical and structural requirements for the cables. One goal of standards is to characterize cables with enough specificity that they can be confidently plugged into the application.
