Wherever a cable harness is being assembled it is essential that harness or loom is tested for build and or material defects.
Tests typically include:
Continuity resistance, short circuit failure, high voltage insulation resistance
Further tests can include:
AC dielectric or HiPot test and Capacitance measurement.
These tests are often repeated after or during installation on an aircraft or vehicle to capture damage caused during the installation process.
MK supplies automatic high voltage test systems to harness shops and system manufacturers, working closely alongside final manufacturers as well as subcontractors, enabling components such as wiring harnesses and connectors to be tested at the component, sub-assembly and final assembly stages of production.
If you make cable harnesses or wiring looms, you need to be talking to MK Test about how you can ensure every harness you manufacture, leaves your premises having been fully tested to specification. Our fast, automated testing systems provide proof of product quality, without holding up your production processes, and our fault diagnostic tools reduce fault finding and reworking time.
Wherever a cable harness is being assembled, it is essential that harness or loom is completed right first time, with connectors that have a strong current flow, and wiring that performs to specification, with minimal leakage or field effects between adjacent running cables. Often such harnesses then need to be checked and tested again, once installed within a vessel or machine superstructure.
MK Test checks cable harnesses for leading manufacturers of aircraft and trains, among others. We work alongside final manufacturers as well as subcontractors, enabling components such as wiring harnesses and connectors to be tested at the component, sub-assembly and full unit stages of production.
