Pagination or Media Count:
Results are presented for a group of tests to determine the acceptability of wire bundles fabricated from Raychem 44 wire with improved accessories, for use in Gemini B spacecraft. Three test specimens were subjected to a massive overload test at 5.0 psia, 100 percent oxygen atmosphere two specimens to an altitude immersion test 24 hours at 1.47 x 10 to the -5th power psia, 36 hour soak in simulated sea water and two specimens to an insulation resistance test 500 Vdc. Each of the test specimens were also subjected to a preliminary dielectric breakdown test at 1500 Vrms. Author
