CABIN STANDARD ENCLOSURES
|Publication Date:||20 November 2018|
Purpose and Scope
The purpose of this specification is to define standard cabin equipment enclosures and provisions for equipment attachment on monuments.
Up until the time of this standard, it was common for several different types of cabin equipment boxes to be installed individually along the ceiling area of an aircraft fuselage. Each type of equipment box is different in design and size. Each type uses different connectors, grounding and bonding methods, installation brackets, and installation methods for structural attachment. For each of these custom installations, the equipment must be located, connected, and mounted using individually designed provisions, custom cabling, and cable routing. These custom installations result in long lead times and excessive costs. This standard was prepared to address these concerns.
