EcoHarness, a new division at Ecolift Corporation

Posted under Harness Press Release

Here at EcoHarness we strive for complete customer satisfaction with the main focus on a quality product. Harness fabrication is a detail oriented process in which specified parameters must be met. These parameters are dictated by industry, manufacturer and customer specifications. The process starts with organization of controlled fabrication data provided by either the customer or by Ecolift Corporation. Fabrication data is then reviewed and distributed to logistics personnel for parts kitting as well as specially trained technicians who will convert this data into unique wire data files.  These wire data files are processed utilizing the latest non-abrasive Ultra Violet (UV) laser marking technology meeting MIL-W-5088L, “Military Specification: Wiring Aerospace Vehicle”; SAE- AS-50881E, “Wiring Aerospace Vehicle”; SAE ARP5607A, “Legibility of Print on Aerospace Wires and Cables” and BAC 5152 Tri-Star Technologies “Direct Printing on Aerospace Wire” standards.

Our process

Once the wires are marked, the Harnesses Fabrication technicians prepare the wires for termination. These preparations include bundling of wires to form a harness assembly that may contain multiple breakouts for different systems that are to be interfaced. Great care is taken in the bundling of the harnesses by "combing out” wires to minimize harness bulk and securing clean breakouts.  Upon completion of wire preparation process the kitted parts are distributed for necessary terminations. Terminations may include but are not limited to “Mil-Spec” circular contacts applied with industry standard tooling, and the use of "Solder Sleeve" environmentally protected shield terminations and other solder applications referencing IPC J-STD-001F, “Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies”.

 

Prior to insertion/installation of wire terminations to applicable connector quality control inspections are performed to insure proper termination techniques were used. After inspections are completed the technicians will correct any errors found and have these terminations re-inspected a final time. Once all of the terminations are deemed "free of error" the technician will assemble the connectors. The technician will then perform final harness formation by applying items such as anti-chaff sleeves and connector/harness identification labels. Continuity testing of final harness is then performed by a technician other than that which did the terminations. This process serves as a “second set of eyes” in the efforts to mitigate any human error. Lastly, the harness receives a final inspection before being packaged and distributed to the customer in the form of an avionics upgrade kit or to our in-house installation department.
