W ing leading and trailing edges are harsh environments for EWIS installations. EWIS wire harnesses in this zone are exposed on some aircraft models whenever the flaps or slats are extended. Other potential sources of mechanical damage include slat torque shafts and bleed air ducts. Wheel wells are also subject to severe external environmental stress factors including impact damage from rocks, ice, and mud, as well as from vibration and chemical contamination. Adequate protection of EWIS cabling in these areas includes shielding, jacketing, and in some applications, enclosure in metal-core or polymer-core conduit.
