SWPM splice selection for a broken wire

Postby TMA259 » 29 Jan 2017, 19:42

Hi, I have problems using the SWPM. Could you tell me the steps to follow to find the splice that do I have to use to repair a specific wire¿? e.g. W0018-5501-20
It's giving me a headache!!

tks in advance :)

W0018-5501-20

W0018 = Wire Bundle Number
5501 = Wire Number
20 = Wire Gauge

Step 1: Wire Identification

-Go to: WDM 91-21-11 WIRE LIST,
-Find Wire Bundle W0018,
-Find Wire Number 5501,
-You can read a lot of information about Your wire here including: gauge GA, color CO, type TY, length FT-IN, where it is connected on both sides, type of termination both sides (Ref.WDM->Front Matter->Introduction->Charts and Lists for more explanation, I recommend to read it through),
-Record information about Your wire (5501): TY = PA, GA = 20 (this You know already from Wire Identification Number), You might need wire length in case repair with the splice is not allowed and You need to replace all wire as example,
-Go to: SWPM 20-00-13 WIRE TYPE CODES,
-Find Wire Type PA: PA = BMS 13-48 Type 10 Class 1 with one conductor - unshielded wire

Step 2: Repair Identification

-Go to SWPM 20-10-13 REPAIR OF ELECTRICAL WIRE AND CABLE,
-Select appriopriate repair for Your conditions, for Your example: Para.4 REPAIR OF UNSHIELDED WIRE AND UNSHIELDED CABLE WITH A SPLICE ASSEMBLY,
-Follow the steps: in point 3 You can read: "For the splice of: An AWG 8 or larger high temperature wire, refer to Subject 20-30-13; All other wires, refer to Subject 20-30-12 for the selection of a sealed splice configuration.",

Step 3: Splice Selection

-Go to SWPM 20-30-12 ASSEMBLY OF SPLICES,
-Select Paragraph for Your conditions, for Your example: Para.7 SEALED SPLICE CONFIGURATIONS FOR UNSHIELDED WIRES AND UNSHIELDED CABLES,
-Follow the steps,
-Select Your configuration, for Your example: Para.7.F One or Two Wires to One or Two Wires - Splice Kit
-Follow the steps,
-Go to Table 19 PART NUMBERS OF SEALED SPLICE KITS FOR UNSHIELDED WIRE AND UNSHIELDED CABLE,
-Select appriopriate Splice Kit Part Number for Your condition, for Your example: one wire to one wire, AWG 20 = CAU 12 both sides - THIS IS YOUR P/N OF SPLICE KIT ,
-Go to Table 20 COMPONENT PART NUMBERS OF SEALED SPLICE KITS,
-Find Part Numbers of Components for Your Splice Kit
-Go back to Para.7.F One or Two Wires to One or Two Wires - Splice Kit and follow the steps.


Perform this exercise for different types of wires (shielded wire, twisted pair etc.).

Good Luck,
