IPC/WHMA-A-620 Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies, is modelled after IPC-A-610; IPC's most widely used standard with an international reputation as THE source for end product acceptance criteria for consumer and high reliability printed circuit board assemblies.

IPC/WHMA-A-620 is the first industry consensus standard for cable and wire harness fabrication and installation. Classes of products are defined and include criteria for Target, Acceptable, Process Indicator and Defect conditions to support the collection of visual quality acceptability requirements for each class. The training program has been updated to cover the changes in Revision B of the standard.

The 620B has more than 680 full colour illustrations and includes greatly expanded criteria for molding, potting, splicing, crimp contacts without insulation support, inline insulation, displacement connectors, connectorization, rigid and conformable cable, flexible sleeving, broomstitching, testing and more. The new revision includes updated criteria for wire prep, soldering to terminals, crimping of stamped and formed contacts and machined contacts, insulation displacement connectors, ultrasonic welding, splicing, connectors, molding, marking, coax/biax cables, wrapping/lacing, shielding, assembly and wire-wrap Terminations.

IPC/WHMA-A-620 describes acceptability criteria for crimped, mechanically secured and soldered interconnection and the corresponding lacing/restraining criteria associated with cable and harness assemblies. It can be used as a stand alone document for purchasing product or to support your ISO certification documentation requirements.

The IPC-A-620 Training and Certification course is conducted over three days and includes the following topics:

  • Cable and wire dimensioning, tolerances and preparation
  • Crimp terminations: - Stamped and formed contacts - Machined contacts
  • Insulation displacement connections
  • Ultrasonic welding
  • Soldered terminations
  • Splices
  • Connectorisation
  • Moulding and potting
  • Marking and labelling
  • Co-axial and twin-axial assembly
  • Wire bundle securing
  • Shielding
  • Installation
  • Wire wrap (solderless) Testing of Cable/Wire Harness Assemblies

Successful completion of this course will provide you with IPC Certification which demonstrates commitment to customer requirements and greatly facilitates certification to ISO Certification or other quality assurance initiatives. By having earned this portable credential, you'll receive immediate recognition, legitimacy and value throughout the electronics industry.
