English

Subject field(s)
  • Electrical Appliances and Equipment
  • Aircraft Systems
DEF

A large group of electrical wires individually tagged, clipped together and then attached as a unit to structure, usually in wireway.

CONT

A wiring harness [is] an assembly of electrical wiring bundles.

OBS

An electrical wiring harness typically comprises a bundle of individual wires of varying gauges, impedances, and types, all arranged in a particular order. These wiring harnesses are typically bound together in order to facilitate the installation, repair and maintenance of the wires, and the connection of multiple remote systems. ... In the aircraft industry, for example, wiring harnesses are used to interconnect the various electrical components and subassemblies of the multitude of systems located within an aircraft.

OBS

The operation and integrity of insulated conductors forming a core or wire bundle in an aircraft environment must be maintained, otherwise a resulting transmission of erroneous data through the wire bundles may occur. In a severe environment of increased temperatures, such as inside the leading edge of a wing, a thermal barrier installed over the wire bundles can afford the protection needed.

PHR

Wire bundle assembly, clamp, insulation.

PHR

Burn-out, stationary wire bundle.

Domaine(s)
  • Équipement et outillage d'exploration spatiale
CONT

Le faisceau de câblage [relie] électriquement les éléments du télémanipulateur. Il fournit l'électricité à toutes les articulations et à l'effecteur (main robotique) et transmet également les données et l'information provenant de chacune d'entre elles. Le faisceau de câblage parcours le SRMS [Shuttle Remote Manipulator System], traverse la soute de la navette et vient se terminer dans le poste de commande de la navette spatiale. C'est de là que les astronautes peuvent télécommander les mouvements du télémanipulateur.

OBS

faisceau de câblage : terme uniformisé par le Groupe de travail de la terminologie de la Station spatiale internationale (GTTSSI).
