Electronic Test Industry Best Practices: Mil-Spec Wire & Cable

Electronic Test IndustryEMC Technologies offers custom design and manufacturing of discretely wired and wireless functional test fixtures, systems, and solutions for clients who represent many different industries. However, our roots begin with meeting the functional test needs of the military. Today, we serve a mix of military, military contractor, and commercial customers, while still maintaining a world-class standard for quality and customer service. Our team has worked to develop automated test equipment and highly custom interface test adapters (ITAs) for military airplane programs and multinational missile programs. We strive to stay ahead of the curve for technology, methods, and techniques used in the electronic test industry to meet the demands and challenges faced by our customers.

Custom Cables for Testing Fixtures

One of the ways that we go above and beyond for our clients is in custom design and manufacturing of Mil-Spec wire and cable. Custom cables for testing fixtures are essential to ensure the quality, specifications, and unique requirements of the solutions we provide to our clients. Mil-Spec wire and cable is manufactured according to military specifications and is designed for use in some of the most demanding applications. While the primary use is for aviation and aerospace technology, including some of the military airplane and missile programs that we have worked on, there are other conditions where these custom cables for testing fixtures and applications are required.

Our team of experienced and professionally trained technicians has the skills and background needed to fabricate nearly any type of cable. They are certified according to the J-STD-001 standard biannually to ensure that they stay on top of the latest technological demands of the industry. Our cables are Mil-Standard, Mil-Spec or Best Commercial Practices. We offer automated cutting and crimping for top quality results, as well as continuity and Hipot testing, based on our client’s needs. Our technicians are also experienced with nearly all popular connections and contacts required by our commercial clients. The knowledge that we have of Mil-Spec wire and cable helps us to be ready to respond to requests from customers for solutions designed for extreme operating conditions.

Highly Demanding Applications

The custom cables for testing fixtures and other Mil-Spec quality solutions that we create for our customers are ideal for use within a wide range of industrial and military situations. Antennas, ground wire, airframes, satellites, weaponry, electrical systems, heavy-duty vehicles, and jet engines are just some of the examples of military and non-military uses for our custom design and manufacturing of cable and wire for the electronic test industry. The term “highly demanding” concerns the application and use of these components can refer to operating conditions that include extremely high or low temperatures, pressures, and frequencies beyond the parameters designed for typical commercial use.

Mil-Spec wire and cable is also ideal for use in situations where resistance to abrasion, corrosion, chemical damage, and moisture-related issues. Client concerns, such as exposure to fuels, solvents, fungus, mold, and other damaging conditions must be addressed through the custom design and manufacturing of Mil-Spec grade wire and cable. Avionics, aeronautics, electrical, and automotive industry clients are more interested in this type of designed-in protection for their manufacturing needs. EMC Technologies offers a wide range of custom cables for testing fixtures and real-life applications that are designed and tested to meet rigid military standards for use in electronics, communications equipment, instrumentation, and a wide variety of commercial and industrial applications.
