Fast Stack Cables
The Spider Hub is the latest innovation from Approach Systems
of "Plug & Play" wiring for your aircraft. Intercom installations
have never been so fast and clean to wire.
Easy To Install
The Spider Hub can be used in any aircraft from older retrofits and
upgraded avionics in certified aircraft, to new home-builts. Approach
has designed the Spider Hub with high quality, easy to install connectors
that are used throughout the aviation industry. All of the soldering,
pin research, diagrams, crimping and wire stripping have been taken
care of in our pre-built cables and hub. You can leave your soldering
iron out of the aircraft throughout the complete intercom installation.
Wiring distances and your intercom model is all of the information we
need to complete your configuration.
The Spider Hub will connect directly with your Garmin 340, PS-Engineering,
Bendix King, and UPS Audio or Intercom system. All of your cables are
terminated with the applicable connectors and clearly labeled. You will
not need to solder, crimp, or strip any wires to complete your installation.
The Spider Hub is compact and lightweight allowing installation anywhere
behind the instrument panel. It is made of durable 5052 aluminum with
gold alodyned for centralized grounding. Hub connectors are of the highest
quality assuring strong electrical connections and a long life. The
Spider Hub is not considered an "active" component and is only used
for avionic interconnections. The internal wiring is engineered on a
high grade commercial PC board.
Wiring for the aircraft's headsets is complete and terminated on both
ends. We provide you with headphone and mic jacks already soldered and
ready to install. The Spider Hub end of the cable is terminated with
RJ-11 jacks for the passengers and DB-9 connectors for the pilot and
co-pilot. Commercial airliners use similar connectors on the aircraft
they build and fly today. The cables are built to manufacturer's requirements
including shielded, milspec wires. In addition, the cables have an outer
white polyolefin jacket for an additional measure of safety protecting
wiring insulation from abrasion, fretting, and cracking The cables are
properly grounded to eliminate any ground looping problems.
The Spider Hub eliminates the time consuming, difficult, error-prone
hand wiring methods used today. Intercom installations and upgrades
are simplified by nearly eliminated the complicated technical details
required for intercom wiring. Labor charges, ground loops and other
problems, and aircraft downtime are drastically reduced.
You can rest assured that you will not be chasing wiring errors in our
cables. We test every harness to guarantee 100% compliance to your requirements
for both electrical and physical integrity. Our processes and practices
allow us to achieve and ensure consistent total quality.
