Approach Fast Stack’s modular wiring system interconnects avionic components with a central hub and ready-build cables (all cables are double shielded and grounded at the hub eliminating the possibility of ground loops) for the majority of avionics in the marketplace. Retrofitting Approach Fast Stack wiring systems into an aircraft or building a new avionics panel is simple: select the Approach Fast Stack hub for your panel (basic, IFR, or VFR), choose the ready-built cables for your avionics, install the hub, plug in the cables (between the hub and avionics) and you’re done. Approach Fast Stack eliminates time and errors caused by the hand wiring methods used today.
At Approach Fast Stack we strive for excellence in every project. With three decades of experience, our design and build teams produce a modern, user friendly, custom avionics package tailored to the aircraft and pilot wants/needs. We build our harnesses in a climate controlled facility using mil-spec wire, connectors and contacts to provide the highest quality and customer satisfaction possible. Our wire harnesses are built as far to plug-n-play as possible, (some connectors are left off of the harness for ease of routing through the airframe). These wires are labeled accordingly for their intended purpose. Once built, the harnesses are tested for quality and accuracy using the Cami Research Model M2 Cable Eye tester. Each harness is supplied with a schematic of all connections; and a diagram of the entire avionics wiring package is also provided with configuration settings.
Approach Fast Stack manufactures the avionics cabling, the interface hub, and can supply the avionics that best apply to the pilots specific needs. All systems can now be completely tested before they are installed into the aircraft. In addition, the complete packages are modular from the bench to the panel providing customers fast install turnaround times and the ability to easily swap out avionics components pre- or post-installation.
Approach Fast Stack provides pre-sales customer services and consultation and complete post-sales customer services and consultation and complete post-sales customer support.
