Testing for every electrical component is crucial so as to avoid any hassles or mishaps later when the entire application is set up and powered on. One such very important, yet easily ignored, component is the wire. Electrical applications consist of multiple kinds of wires and wire assemblies in order to work. These wires must be thoroughly tested too.
Which testing procedure is important?
While wires that are regular in construction and performance undergo traditional testing procedures, there may be certain wires that include additional components, which is why they may require a more custom testing approach. Such additional components may include fiber optics, pressure gages, temperature gages, sensors, magnetic switches, black box circuitry, I/O, and more. After considering all the components involved, the best approach should be decided upon to ensure that the product meets all deliverables. Various tactics can be employed to gain the highest degree of success. Specialized testing or inspection procedures should also be used, as and when required.
Should the testing be automated or manual?
To exceed the challenges with complex component structured wires, one or more of these testing approaches can be adopted – manual testing for continuity and shorts, automated point-to-point testing, visual inspection of key attributes, functional testing, pre-testing of key components, Hi-Pot, etc. Although testing should be made automated as much as possible, there could still be certain manual checks and tests to be done. Every effort should be put in to identify what has not been covered as part of the standard automated testing procedures, and the same should be done manually, so as to avoid failed expectations later.
Why is testing important?
Thorough testing not only ensures that the product is perfect to use, but it also reduces the installation time, reduces further inspection efforts, reduces any potential future repairing costs, supports lean techniques, reduces failures and related costs, and aids in making complex installations possible.
