Applications

The ANSI/NEMA WC 27500 REV A specification is commonly used to describe both shielded and unshielded cable constructions for avionics, aerospace and airframe applications. The specification allows the user a wide variety of construction choices. Circuit identification, conductor size, insulation type, number of conductors, shielding material and jacket compound may all be specified using this document.

QPL is required for WC27500 in addition to the basic component wires. The producer of the finished cable must be a qualified source under the applicable basic wire specification, or must provide evidence that Qualified wire was used in the construction of the cable.

Since Marmon Aerospace and Defense ® has a large variety of military QPL approvals, it is able to provide one of the widest ranges of WC 27500 constructions of any source in the wire and cable industry. Although this brief sheet cannot list all the detailed testing and specification requirements contained in the complete WC 27500 document, we have summarized the major construction features of the specification and listed those that Marmon produces.

The specification also allows a wide variety of jacket materials in both single and double wall constructions. The double jacket constructions are to be used in conjunction with the double shields listed above. A double jacket is applied using 2 shields with the inner jacket isolating the shields, plus an outer jacket.
