Shield & Jacketing of Aircraft FLIR Harness


A small-diameter wire harness located in a helicopter’s pivoting FLIR ball turret required EMI hardening and insulation while maintaining harness flexibility. The solution required the materials to be very thin, lightweight and aviation approved. The harness was a closed-loop design in several areas requiring the materials to be of a wrap-around design.


A mixed combination of several standard Zippertubing products located in key areas solved all the vehicle’s performance requirements and allowed the harness to perform as originally specified by the manufacturer.
