Design and Critical Process Requirements for Cable and Wiring Harnesses
|Publication Date:||1 December 2015|
This document provides design and critical process requirements and technical insight that have been removed from the acceptance standards for cable and wire harness assemblies. Reference materials listed in this text are among those considered as required reading. The User is encouraged to obtain all relevant referenced materials as this document cannot (nor can any single document) cover every material, process, environment, performance, or safety aspect that affect a given design.
Purpose ''Design Requirements for Cable and Wiring Harnesses'' is the cable and wiring harness and systemslevel design requirements companion to IPC/WHMA-A-620, ''Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies,'' and its associated space addendum.
The intent of this document is to set forth the general design requirements for electrical wiring harnesses and cable assemblies. This document is intended for use by the design engineer, manufacturing engineer, quality engineer, or other individual responsible for the tailoring of specific requirements of this document to the applicable performance class.
It is not the intent of this document to exclude any alternate or contractor-proprieta
