All our wiring harnesses are tested using our Cirris Automated test machine. We have 1920 test points allowing us to test full F1 chassis harnesses down to a single battery cable. The Cirris allows us to test Low Voltage Continuity which ensures that the wiring harness circuit in Serial number 001 is the same as Serial Number 1000 etc. It will also test at High Voltage (up to 1500V) and carry out an Insulation resistance test and a Dielectric Withstand test. This helps the inspector to ensure that the wiring harness is built to the best standards and will be as reliable as possible.
We also carry out yearly services for some of our customers which allow us to compare the tests against when the harness was originally manufactured and advise if any crimps are becoming worn etc. As a testament to our quality standards the wiring harnesses supplied to Gibson Technology for their award wining LMP2 Engines have now gone through servicing to run in their third seasons.
When we manufacture complete electrical systems to a HCI design, we will always carry out a full bench test to ensure everything is working together before functional testing on the vehicle itself
