Optimise cables and harness systems for efficient and safe aircraft power and data distribution

A technical event for experts in the aircraft industry focused on designing, manufacturing, improving and maintaining aircraft cables and cables harness architecture.

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.

At this conference you will
* Explore innovations of multi-functional and high-performance aircraft cables and how to integrate them into your aircraft wire architecture
* Learn about how to use your toolbox when calculating your aircraft cable harnesses and develop aircraft cable protection strategies in the most efficient way
* Understand how to prevent wire aging and cable failure and how to apply the latest approaches towards aircraft wire repair and maintenance strategies
* Discover the latest solutions for your aircraft cable shielding, insulation and finish to secure robust and lightweight aircraft harnesses

  2. 2. Dear experts, After a highly successful international conference on More Electric Aircraft last November in Hamburg, it is now time to look at the infrastructure of the power distribution of an aircraft. It is my great pleasure to invite you to the “Advanced Aircraft Cabling” in the Radisson BLU Hotel at Hamburg Airport, Germany. At this expert networking conference you will get the opportunity to learn from aircraft wire harness installation case studies and best practices and gain deep insights into the latest aircraft cable technologies. The main concern of airlines, aircraft and wire harness manufacturers is to secure the power supply for the growing number of crucial electronic applications while respecting the limitations for weight and space that the wire harness occupies. At these two conference days and four specialist workshops, you have the opportunity to exchange and discuss experience on the latest approaches towards the design, manufacturing and engineering of aircraft harness wires as well as reliable ­aircraft cable protection, repair and maintenance strategies that are vital for operating aircrafts in a safe and reliable manner. Meet leading representatives from airlines, aircraft manufacturers, air framers, cable and wire harness manufacturers as well as ­component suppliers. Experience case studies and best practices for advanced aircraft cabling operations. I look forward to meeting you in Hamburg!
