2nd International Conference Aircraft Cabling
Electrical Wiring Interconnection System (EWIS) - Electrical insulation systems - High temperature/High speed
With all the attention focused on the new technology, it is easy to overlook the critical role wire and cable plays in the development of the next-generation aircraft. Using an array of materials and system designs, wire and cable developers are striving to meet growing capacity demands, while holding the line on size and weight and meeting stringent regulations. It is an effort filled with daunting challenges and opportunities.
Like many other technology segments, the industry is caught between the seemingly competing demands to provide smaller, lighter products and greater capacity to meet the power needs of in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems. For operators, however, the overarching goal is fielding fuel efficient planes. Everyone has got one eye on the cost of fuel and (is) looking to drive down their operating costs.
The key is reducing size and weight without sacrificing quality. With this in mind, a great deal of research and development is being focused on insulation and conductor materials.
Furthermore, this year we want to give you MORE and that is why we are bringing together topics and experts in three parallel streams for: More Electric Aircraft - Aircraft Cabling - More Electric Engine.
- Hear about smaller and lighter cables/wires with greater capacity to provide safe system integration and safe interconnection of components
- Find new insulation and conductor materials to meet operators demands
- Gain insights into preventing wire aging and cable failure and how to apply the latest approaches towards aircraft wire repair and maintenance strategies manner
- Learn from aircraft wire harness installation case studies and best practices and gain deep insights into the latest aircraft cable technologies
