3History and Capabilities Began 199180,000 sf manufacturing & warehouse space at two facilities110 employeesIn-house tool and die-making shopCustom-designed products built to orderTrailer harnessing – light to heavy dutyLoom harnessing – multi-circuit applications; engine and transmissionElectronic security controls
4Organization Participation TTMA – Truck Trailer Manufacturers AssociationSAE – Society of Automotive EngineersWHMA – Wiring Harness Manufacturers AssociationNATM – National Association Trailer ManufacturersIACOA – Independent Armored Car Operators AssociationTMC – Technology & Maintenance Council (ATA)
5Materials Specifications PVC Jacketed Cable- 19 strand AWG automotive copper- Conforms to SAE and TTMA requirements- -40° to +160°F working temperature range- Resists oils, acids, alkalis, sunlight, heat, weathering, abrasion- Custom-manufactured to USAH specificationsTerminations- Non-insulated brass, tin-coated stamped and formed contactsMolding Compound- Virgin PVC compounds in 60, 75, 90 and 100 durometer hardnessConnectors- Metal or nylon sockets/plugs conforming to SAE J560Dielectric Grease- Corrosion preventative compound for electrical contacts installed in all female contacts
6Manufacturing Procedures Termination- Calibrated machine press crimped terminations- Mandatory pull tests conducted to ensure correct crimpSplicing- Ultrasonic welded splices for superior conductivity and reliability- All splices are tape wrapped to prevent short circuitingMolding- Pressure injection molded into tool steel die sets- Cable jackets prepped with solvent for adhesion to mold compoundInspection/Testing- All parts visually and mechanically inspected to custom print- All parts tested electronically to ensure conductivity and loading
8Independent TestingASTM B117 Salt Spray Test (American Society for Testing & Materials)Grote & Truck-Lite LED LampsSuccessfully Completed 500 hours of Continuous OperationSAE J560 for Sockets & Plugs Requires 168 hours – USA-Plus™ nearly 3X!!
