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 installation on a vehicle to confine the 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. This enables components like wire harnesses and connectors to be verified at the component, sub-assembly and final stages of construction.
If you make cable harnesses or wiring looms, you should contact MK Test to guarantee every harness you manufacture leaves your premises having been fully tested to the highest specification. Our fast automated testing systems provide proof of product quality, without holding up your production processes. We also provide fault diagnostic tools to reduce the time it takes to find errors and rework time.
Every time a cable harness is being assembled, it is essential that the harness or loom is completed right first time. It is crucial that connectors that have a strong current flow, and wiring that performs to specification need to have 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 aircrafts and trains, as well as many 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.
