Intercon possesses a wide range of test equipment. Our experienced Quality Assurance technicians perform testing to your drawing requirements using calibrated equipment traceable to N.I.S.T. Assemblies are tested for continuity, opens, shorts, connection resistance, and insulation resistance. We also perform Hi-pot, continuity of protective bonding circuit tests, and component testing such as resistors, diodes, and capacitors. Our Cable Analyzer tests twisted pair cabling for NEXT and Return Loss and our Network Analyzer allows RF testing such as VSWR and Insertion Loss. Fiber optic cable assemblies are tested for attenuation to your specification. Most testing is performed using programmable test equipment with memory to assure consistency and accuracy. Intercon’s manufacturing tooling undergoes scheduled inspections that insure terminations meet or exceed the manufacturer’s specifications.
