IPC/WHMA-A-620 Space addendum provides additional requirements over those published in the IPC/WHMA-A-620 to ensure the performance of cable and wire harness assemblies that must survive the vibration and thermal cyclic environments getting to and operating in space. This course is supported by actual cable building exercises and concludes with a qualifying examination.
Students will demonstrate the ability to assemble and install three complete cables and route and fasten into a chassis. This will involve soldering, cup terminals, crimping, machine contacts, insulated lugs, IDC connections, wire splices, coax connectors, shield terminations, including routing using ty-wraps/lacing cord, shielding, braid and shrink tubing and testing of the final product.
This IS NOT a stand-alone course. It must be completed in conjunction with the IPC/WHMA-A-620 base class. Not available for CSE certification.
