Consistent as well as accurate Wire Harness Testing contributes greatly to our long-term successful customer relationships. 

Actually, at Falconer Electronics, Wire Harness Manufacturing and Assembly runs through our veins.

Having built literally millions upon millions of Wire Harnesses over the past 35 years, many of our employees say they could build a wire harness in their sleep. (Is that why they started bringing their pillows to work?)

On a serious note, Quality Inspection and Testing is a core process with every order. 

Wire Harness Testing Check List

Wire Harness Testing

Safety First! Wire Harness Testing requires extreme caution since live wires are involved.

Unfortunately, electric shock and burns can turn a great day into a real bad day quickly.

Mandatory personal protective equipment on the job includes gloves and safety glasses when testing a wire assembly.  

When performing Wire Harness Testing, our quality control department strictly follows the IPC/WHMA-A-620 Standard. This standard is a collection of visual Quality Acceptability Requirements for Cable, Wire and Harness Assemblies. 

Below includes a check list for testing wires in a wire harness assembly: 

  1. Accurate Labeling
  2. Check for Damaged Insulation or Defective Wires 
  3. Continuity
  4. Correct Wire Gauge
  5. Proper connectors and terminals 
  6. Free of Moisture and Corrosion
  7. Optimum Wire Placement Within Connectors
  8. Pull Test
  9. Test for Broken Wires
  10. Test for Shorts
