Voltage Drop Calculator

Aircraft Wiring Cables



This is a circular ‘slide rule’ for calculating voltage drop in aircraft cables of different lengths. Complete with case. The instructions are on the rear of the device.The date of this Calculator is post 1945 when BICC was formed but cannot be more precisely determined.It is possible that the code on the rear of the Calculator ‘UKP/X/1156 is a date code for 1956 which is a plausible date.
