Folks,
I dug through the archives and couldn't find an answer....so here goes.

I'm wiring a Glastar with composite fuselage. My strobe power supply model "HDACF" is in the tail cone. My strobe flash units are in the wing tips. The wings are all aluminum.

The Whelen kit came with 18AWG shielded twisted pair for Pos and Neg hook up of the power supply.

I need a little help with how to run this shielded twisted pair forward to my switch, the Power Bus, and ground bus.

My question is what to do with the twisted pair once I get to the panel? Do I split the wire and just run one up to the switch and the other up to ground bus, and then run a separate unshielded wire back to the Power bus from the switch? Or is there a technique to be applied in getting the twisted pair intact to the switch, bus, and ground while maintaining the shield?

I will ground the shield of the 18AWG twisted pair at the strobe power supply box mounting lug.

Thanks for any guidance,
Howard
