Wire Harness Cable Assembly Solutions
Quality is at the heart of GCT’s offering, facilities are UL & ISO 9001:2008 certified. Where customers require UL traceability, GCT ensure materials and components always meet their needs. UL file number and ISO certification.
Assemblies are 100% tested guaranteeing reliability and compliance, a variety of appropriate tests are applied depending on cable assembly type. Examples are: Short or open circuit, intermittent circuit, mis–wiring. Hi-Pot, static load for strain relief, bending test, crimp pull off force, contact to housing retention force and plastic hardness.
Crimped assemblies are used in both signal and power applications, often as part of a wire to board system design.This type of design allow cables to connect to a printed circuit board by use of a female connector terminated to cable. Individual discrete wires are stripped of insulation, crimped and then inserted into female housing to complete the assembly. The completed assembly mates with a male PCB header, which offers options for locking, latching and polarised connectors.
GCT offer both industry standard branded (Molex, TE, Hirose, etc) sockets and high quality low cost alternatives. The alternatives are fully intermatable with branded connectors and often have a smaller MOQ and shorter lead time. A wide range of connector pitches are available from 0.8mm thru 5.08mm.
GCT offer many custom wire harness options including a huge choice of cable types - Discrete wire in a wide range of diameters, twisted pair, jacketed multicore, shielded and many other options.
Additional options include braiding, drain wire, heat shrink, cable marking in various styles, including labels, jacket and core colour options offer customers a wide variety of choice. Assemblies may be custom packaged to meet your specifications. Environmental options, such as halogen free are also available.
Cable looms may be supplied with prepared ends, which are stripped, twisted and tinned for soldering to a PCB. Another option is partially stripped, otherwise known as 'slug' to allow customers to prepare twisted ends on site.
