Test Equipment Kit. Contains diagnostic and test
equipment and adaptors.
Connector Repair Kit. Contains electrical connector
insertion or removal tools, crimping tools and dies,
and wire stripping tools and dies.
Wire Repair Kit. Contains wire, shield, and co-axial
materials. Also contains certain bulk wire, shield,
and insulation materials, terminal boards, and cable
tying materials. This kit also contains certain
connector pins and sockets for use with the
connector repair kit. A heat gun is included to
complete environmentally protected splices.
The fourth kit is for use at the downed aircraft site. It
contains materials and tools needed to perform
emergency repairs that will allow self recovery of the
aircraft. The emergency repair and aircraft recovery kit
is compact to facilitate transport to the downed aircraft
environmentally protected software as follows:
Instruction Sheets. For the tools, repair materials,
and test equipment contained within the kit.
Contents Chart. For inventory control of the
components contained within each kit storage
Cross-Reference Charts. For re-ordering kit
Application Charts. To provide proper selection of
kit components for a specific task.
The information contained in the software is intended for
use during combat to repair aircraft wiring systems
without using any other TM. Recommended usage of
the four kits is described in paragraphs 9-7b(1) through
Test Equipment Kit.
Mission And Major Components.
The test equipment kit is used for diagnosing and
troubleshooting damaged aircraft wiring systems and for
verifying wiring repair. The kit contains electronic
instruments for conducting necessary test. The
instruments and their intended use are:
Digital Multimeter (DMM). A digit multimeter is
provided for measurement of circuit voltages (AC to
1000 VAC, DC to 1500 VDC); current (up to 10
amps); and resistance (0 to 20 ohm). An "instant-
on" continuity indicator is provided. The DMM is
waterproof and built for use in hostile environments.
Time Domain Reflectometer (TDR). A TDR is
provided to locate and analyze faults in coaxial
cables. The TDR provides a CRT display of the
cable condition. The display indicates the type of
fault present (short, open, crimped, frayed, or
crushed) and the distance of the fault (in 0.1 ft.
increments) from a reference point at the TDR input.
The TDR also provides a chart recorder which is
used to make a permanent record of a repaired
cable's TDR signature for inclusion in the aircraft
records. The TDR may also be used to test twisted
discharge if left in the TDR
Remove the battery pack from the
TDR and place in compartment
number 16 (spare) of the test
The test equipment kit also
contains test leads and adaptors
to allow connection of the TDR or
DMM to the wires or cable
support equipment such as a
flashlight, illuminated magnifying
glass, spare D-Cell, AAA, and 9-
Volt batteries, and rolls or TDR
Use. Prior to using kit contents, a
good working knowledge of the test equipment operating
procedures and adaptor selection is required. The
protected software within the kit and provides the
operating instructions forth TDR and DMM. It also
contains adaptor selection charts for connecting the
TDR and DMM to co-axial cable connectors, connector
pins and sockets, bare wires, and terminal boards.
