Lightweight, Side-Entry EMI/RFI Cable Wrap with ArmorLite™ Technology
Tubular braided sleeving meets the broad range of shielding and mechanical protection requirements of aircraft harness assemblies. But the need to apply conductive shielding materials over installed aircraft wire and cable bundles requires new technology. Legacy self-wrapping cable braid has long been available for EMI/RFI applications and abrasion protection, albeit with poor high-frequency shielding performance due to its heavy weight, inflexibility, and windowing. MasterWrap™, a lightweight, easy-to-install, side-entry, selfwrapping shielding solution solves these problems and more. MasterWrap™ is ideally suited for both long-run wire harness protection as well as spot coverage and maintenance of EMC cable applications.
Glenair MasterWrap™ is both a weight reduction technolgy as well as an ease-of-assembly improvement for wire and cable protection. The material offers significant weight savings compared to traditional tin copper and nickel braid, and is already qualified for use at major aircraft manufacturers. MasterWrap™ adds flexibility and repairability capabilities to wire and cable harness applications traditionally shielded with tubular braid – from long runs to spot coverage and repairs.
