400 Hz Cable Assembly with New Unique Safety Device

To prevent the aircraft from moving away from the Boarding Bridge as long as the 400 Hz system is connected to the aircraft, the new aircraft cable assembly incorporates a unique ITW GSE safety device called a split F pin.
See the video:

 

This solution is by far much more dependable than the traditional solution which uses a mechanical switch.
When inserting the connector into the aircraft, the F-pin of the aircraft receptacle establishes a solid contact between the two parts of the split F-tube (inside the connector) which closes the control circuit.

The new safety device is available in the new 400 Hz Aircraft Cable Assembly.
