In this latest webinar, Smithers expert, Christine Bythewood will provide an overview of wiring harness and electrical connector validation testing, applications, variables tested, and trends.

From electric vehicles to refrigerators to medical devices, manufacturers are adding intelligent sensors and power sources required to operate as designed. The numbers of electrical connectors and wiring harnesses on each product have grown significantly. Depending on the application, these components can come up against harsh conditions such as heat, rain, snow, and vibration. These conditions can accelerate the natural aging of the wires that can cause connections to become loose, broken, damaged, or corroded. Testing programs are used to validate products and ensure they function as designed.

In this one-hour webinar, Smithers expert Christine Bythewood will provide an overview of Wiring Harness and Electrical Connector Validation Testing.

The presentation will cover:

  • Recent Trends ​
  • Applications for Wiring Harness Testing / Connectors ​
  • Variables Tested​
  • Materials Properties Testing​
  • Assembly Test Methods
