materials, and test equipment required to perform
emergency splice repairs. The major tools, test
equipment, and repair materials are:
Digital Multimeter (DMM). A multimeter with probes
is provided for measurement of AC and DC voltages
and current and continuity tests. The DMM is
environments. This instruction is also provided in
the test equipment kit (paragraph 9-7b(i)(a)).
Wire Repair Segments. Partially assembled wire
splice segments are provided in three gages to
segments have sealing sleeves attached to each
end of the wire.
Assorted Wire Splices. Assorted wire splices are
packaged in three sizes. The splices are used for
repairs other than those using the wire repair
Bulk Wire. Two spools of bulk wire are provided for
use with the assorted wire splices. They are used
for repairs other than those using the wire repair
Wire Strippers. Two wire strippers are provided;
one for stripping M81381 (Kapton) insulated wires,
and one with general purpose blades for stripping all
other wire insulation materials.
Crimp Tool. A crimp tool is provided to crimp wire
repair segments and assorted splices.
Swiss Army Knife. General purpose multiuse tool.
Cable Ties and Teflon Tape. Used to secure wire
splice insulation, wiring, and wire bundles.
Flashlight and illuminated Magnifying Glass. Use in
wire identification and work in reduced light levels.
Diagonal Pliers. Used as a general purpose
cutter for cables, tie wraps, and string ties.
Wire Cutter. Use to cut wires ends during splicing
Use. Before using the kit's components, a
working knowledge of the kit's test equipment, tools,
repair materials, and instruction and content description
charts is required. The software package duplicates the
environmentally protected software. It provides both
instructions for the use of the kits' DMM, tools, and
repair materials, and content description charts. These
instructions are used to make emergency wiring repairs.
Proficiency in the use and application of this material is
necessary to achieve emergency wire repair capability.
