AVIATIONEU NEW ERA SAE...
MIL-spec were initially developed to standardize wires and cables used in military equipment. For many years, wires used in aircraft met MIL-W-5086 mil-spec and SAE-AS50861 standards superseeding them. They were manufactured with the use of tin-coated copper conductors rated at 600 volts and temperatures of 105°C and various insulating coatings including polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The PVC insulation provided resistance to abrasion, among many other things. Still in production, MIL-W-5086 cables in their various types of conductors and jacket constructions are used, apart from the aircraft in other applications that require resistance to abrasion, cut-through, impact, chemicals, and fuels. They are gradually replaced by those made in accordance with Mil-W-22759 standard due to toxic fumes generated by PVC insulation in the event of a fire. The Mil-W-22759 standard transitioned to SAE AS22759 in 2004. These two standards are essentially identical and cover a of wide range of single conductor wires (please refer to the Product Description section and supplied documentation for assistance).
Sourced from quality producers, AS22759/M22759 wires are offered as part of our own labelled (AVIATIONEU NEW ERA) product lines in different configurations, various AWG(*) sizes, in white (standard) or other color variations (desired color should be specified at the time of ordering). They are suitable for use in a range of applications in military and civilian aircraft, in harsh aircraft engine environments, for control surfaces as well as applications in areas subject to severe weather and moisture-prone (SWAMP).
Those commonly used are SAE AS22759/16 unshielded wires (replacing wires produced as per M22759/16 /17/18 and /19 specifications) but other configurations can be available. This specification uses stranded tin plated copper or silver plated high strength alloy conductors and extruded ethylene/tetrafluorbethylene (ETFE) insulation. Respective wire ratings are 150° C and 600 Volts.
The AVIATIONEU NEW ERA AS22759/M22759 wires are sold in cut-to-order lengths in 10 ft increments or pre-determined lengths in feet, indicated in the product reference number (SKU), and packed in rolls or spools. These wires are accompanied by our Certificate of Conformance (CoC).
(*) American Wire Gauge (AWG): Wire gauge is a measurement of wire diameter. This determines the amount of electric current a wire can safely carry, as well as its electrical resistance and weight.
