DTi Announces ADS-B Wire Protection Install Kit

DTi is partnering with EDMO to facilitate FAA-mandated ADS-B aircraft upgrades.

Southborough, MA October 16, 2018 – With the FAA-mandated 2020 ADS-B upgrade fast approaching, Device Technologies, Inc. (DTi), a leading manufacturer of wire protection grommet edging, announces the availability of a NEW ADS-B Wire Protection Install Kit that includes its industry-preferred and FAA approved snap-on Spring-Fast® M22529/2 grommet. 

The Spring-Fast® product line provides Best-in-Class EWIS Anti-Chafe Protection at half the cost of legacy systems. Spring-Fast grommets save 49% of total install costs by applying with finger pressure. No glue. No clean up. No curing.

DTi developed this install kit to facilitate the ADS-B upgrade and help MRO service centers and aircraft owners alike protect critical wires, their overall equipment investment and reduce AOG time due to its quick installation. This helps MROs lower cycle time and take on more ADS-B refit work. 

FAA’s ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast) uses satellites instead of ground-based radar to determine aircraft location and is a key technology behind the FAA’s Next Generation Air Transportation System. The FAA has mandated installation of ADS-B OUT for flights after January 1, 2020, in airspace where a transponder is required today. 

According to DTi President and frequent flier, Nick Petri, “ADS-B is clearly a game changer with regards to CRM (cockpit resource management) and situation awareness. Our kit reduces ADS-B install time and ensures that wires are properly protected for years to come.”

The DTi Wire Protection Install Kit includes:

  • 12 feet- Spring-Fast® M22529/2 grommet
  • 12 feet- PFA-PFW- 1 ¼” braided wrap wire sleeving 
  • 1 pair- 830 PS Full Bypass Shears
  • 1 each- 860 GSB Cut to length bench mount measuring scale
