Electrical Testing

Testing of electrical
connector,cable, and wire

Experior Laboratories offers a full range of experienced qualification, design verification and reliability test services for electrical connectors, cables and systems. Experior Labs is approved to MIL-STD-790 by the Defense Logistic Agency (DLA) Land and Maritime for testing of MIL-DTL-38999 connectors. Experior Labs also qualifies other connector styles, i.e. AS50151, ARINC600,
MIL-DTL-26482 and many more.

All testing is conducted in strict accordance with standardized test methods including the EIA-364 series of electrical test methods and MIL-STD-1344 as well as many other industry standards.

Test methods for electrical connectors include:
• Vibration, shock and impact
• Temperature and humidity
• High temperature exposure
• Thermal shock and fire wall
• Altitude
• Retention System Fluid Immersion and Salt Spray
• Contact retention and stability
• Contact engagement and separation force
