Test Applications

>

MK products perform electrical inspections of high specification from electrical wiring harnesses, backplanes, electrical management cabinets and associated systems; to complete air and ground vehicles. At the forefront of global technical developments of ATE, MK Test Systems offer the full range of Automatic Electrical Test Applications. From continuity, shorts, resistance, high voltage insulation, hi-pot, capacitance,

Cable Harness

>

Wherever a cable harness is being assembled it is essential that the 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 during or after

Connector

>

Connectors are at the heart of all interconnect systems. A connector’s ability to conduct to specification, and isolate individual circuits is critical to a products operation. MK’s test systems are used by many of the world’s leading connector manufacturers. They are used to test the contact resistance, Insulation resistance, dielectric strength, and capacitance of inserts

Equipped Assembly

>

When a wiring harness is fitted into a major component, such as an aircraft wing, MK Test equipment is used to ensure that the installation has not impacted negatively on the performance and integrity of the harness components, wiring and connectors. Installed harnesses and components are tested in situ, testing continuity resistance, short circuit failures,

Power & Signal Management

>

MK Test equipment is perfectly suited to the testing of electrical integrity and function of control panels. Active components such as relays, contactors, breakers, manual switching, LEDs and lamps, and integrity of connections can all be tested automatically. Test programmes can be generated manually, or automatically with a very quick and simple process called an

Function

>

As well as testing the integrity of a wiring harness or electrical wiring system, MK Test systems can also provide full functional testing of a product. A programme will check through relays, switches and other components, to ensure switching takes place as required, and that the consequential circuits broken or made are performing to specification.

FAL – Final Assembly Line

>

MK Test regularly supplies testing equipment for final assembly lines (FAL) of aircraft and vehicles. While components need to be tested when leaving their production stations, final assembly testing provides an absolute assurance of reliability, to the end customer. For many installations, this final stage testing is the last point of checking the whole control

Aircraft Engines

>

The use of MK Test systems in the manufacture and maintenance of aircraft engines has been proven to reduce production time, reduce MRO turnaround time, and eliminate costly test cell failures. The MK Aircraft Engine Test Systems can be used to test harnesses and electrical systems both off and on-engine. Our systems are used to

Ground Bond Loop and Joint

>

The primary aim of electrical bonding on an aircraft is defined as the establishment of a current path between electrical conductive parts, in order to assure electrical continuity allowing: • Prevention of electrical shocks • Fault detection • Flow/escape of electrostatic charge and leakage currents • Flow/escape of Lightning currents MK Test’s portable BLTU Bond

High Current Bond

>

All aircraft include a Ground Bonding circuit to enable the dissipation of current in the event of lightning strike. The resistance path and integrity of this complete circuit is critical to the safety of the aircraft. MK test systems provide a High Current Bond Test system that tests the resistance across every bonded joint in
