AEF Solutions were approached by an Avionics equipment manufacturer wishing to upgrade a black box used on the C-130 Aircraft, to provide lightening protection to Level 4, waveform 4 of DO160-F.

The project was taken on by AEF but has an unusual requirement in that the black box is qualified to Level 3 waveform 3 and cannot be modified.

AEF has overcome the problem by supplying an Arinc 404 Plug connector, which replaces the existing aircraft plug and provides lightening protection to the required level.

The connector can be installed in situ and negates the need of a new aircraft wiring loom or any modification to the box or mounting system.

Installation is quick and simple and minimises the AOG condition.

You're In Good Company...
