Custom Cable Solutions, Inc. (CCSI) announced the addition of in-house steam and waterjet testing to confirm harnesses’ overall tape binding, overall shield application, and overall outer covering conforms to type b, class 1, 19207-12465333 cleaning specifications. Mandated to help safeguard troops on the battlefield, the specification verifies assemblies’ compliance with the US Army Land Vehicle Maintenance Regulations’ environmental and electrical requirements. It is a requisite for cleaning an array of mission-critical cable assemblies employed in land vehicles and tanks, including BAE Systems’ Bradley A4. While each CCSI cable assembly is visually inspected, electrically tested, and warranted to meet every drawing/specification prior to shipping, this new in-house testing capability moreover confirms the company’s long-standing commitment to the integrity of the defense industry supply chain.
CCSI’s steam and waterjet testing station is singularly equipped and staffed to assure assemblies’ integrity throughout the cleaning processes required to remove any sand, mud, dirt buildup, and corrosives which could degrade vehicles’ performance and subsequently jeopardize the safety of military personnel. The station notably features a NorthStar wet steam and power washer that has been modified to clean cable assemblies to meet and/or exceed 19207-12465333 specifications and employs the required A-A-59133 (high-pressure steam), P-D-220, or commercial equivalent cleaner compound. To further assist customers to reduce time-to-market and certification costs, CCSI can certify all new assemblies based on their similarity to the fully tested and certified CCSI assembly.
