Device Technologies, Inc. announces ADS-B Wire Protection Install Kit
With the FAA-mandated 2020 ADS-B upgrade fast approaching, Device Technologies, Inc. (DTi) has announced the availability of a new Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Wire Protection Install Kit that includes its FAA-approved snap-on Spring-Fast® M22529/2 grommet.
According to a release from DTi, the Spring-Fast product line provides EWIS anti-chafe protection at half the cost of legacy systems. Total install costs can be reduced by 49% with the install of Spring-Fast grommets which are applied using finger pressure, the company notes.
The kit was developed to facilitate the ADS-B upgrade and help MRO service centers and aircraft owners protect critical wires, their overall equipment investment and reduce AOG time due to its quick installation, in turn helping MROs to lower cycle time and take on more ADS-B refit work.
FAA’s ADS-B, a key technology behind the FAA’s Next Generation Air Transportation System, uses satellites instead of ground-based radar to determine aircraft location. The FAA has mandated installation of ADS-B OUT for flights after January 1, 2020, in airspace where a transponder is currently required.
DTi President Nick Petri commented in a statement: “ADS-B is clearly a game changer with regards to CRM (cockpit resource management) and situation awareness. Our kit reduces ADS-B install time and ensures that wires are properly protected for years to come.”
The DTi Wire Protection Install Kit includes:
- Spring-Fast® M22529/2 grommet (12 feet)
- PFA-PFW- 1 ¼” braided wrap wire sleeving (12 feet)
- 830 PS Full Bypass Shears (1 pair)
- 860 GSB Cut to length bench mount measuring scale (1 each)
DTi has teamed up with aircraft aftermarket distributor EDMO for the sale of this kit. The kits are available in four standard sizes and can be customized for larger aircraft and length as required.
