Aerospace Glossary Letter S
– Abbreviation for Society of Automotive Engineers.
– The characteristic of a material whose flame is extinguished after the igniting flame is removed.
– A material that has a resistance characteristic between that of insulators and conductors.
– A hard semi-flexible polyvinylchloride compound with low plasticizer content.
– A layer of insulating material such as textile, paper, polyester, etc. Used to improve stripping qualities, flexibility, mechanical or electrical protection to the components.
– A filament or group of filaments such as fibers or wires, wound around a central core.
– The outer covering or jacket of a multiconductor cable.
– In cables, a metallic layer placed around a conductor or group of conductors to prevent electrostatic interference between the enclosed wires and external fields.
– The physical area of a cable that is actually covered by the shielding material and is expressed in percent.
– The relative ability of a shield to screen out undesirable signals.
– The ratio between the expanded diameter and recovered diameter of shrinkable products.
– That temperature which effects complete recovery of a shrinkable product from the expanded state.
– Tubing which has been extruded, cross-linked and non cross-linked, and mechanically expanded which when reheated will return to its original diameter.
– A current used to convey information, either digital, analog, audio or video.
– A cable designed to carry current of usually less than one ampere per conductor.
– Mode of data transmission in one direction only. Usually on a two-wire facility.
– Fusion of a spirally applied tape wrap jacket by the use of high heat to a homogeneous continuum. Usually employed for fluorocarbon, non-extrudable materials.
– The phenomenon in which the depth of penetration of electric currents into a conductor decreases as the frequency increases.
– A braided, extruded or woven tube.
– Shrinkable tubing with a solder preform used for highest reliability soldering connections or shield grounding.
– A conductor consisting of a single wire.
