Electronic Connector Assembly

Date of Publication: Mar 18, 2013

Sample Video

This video demonstrates best-practices for assembling common connector types, while teaching your operators how to avoid conventional assembly issues -- to make sure your connectors are defect-free and reliable.

DVD-62C is the perfect introduction to the arcane world of electronic connectors. Your students will learn about dielectrics, cavities, plugs, receptacles, contact pins, contact sockets, insertion sequences, insertion tools, solder cups, keying and strain relief. They will also learn the proper methods of mating connectors -- bayonet, threaded and push / pull, and how to verify populated connectors, including contact retention, basic continuity testing and automated testing.

Section 1 provides an overview of connector types, terminology and wire preparation -- including crimped and soldered connections. Section 2 details circular connector assembly. Section 3 focuses on rectangular connectors: D Subminiature and Insulation Displacement.

Includes leader's guide, review questions, exam and certificates for students who pass the final examination.*

Notes on DVD / OVT Product Descriptions:

Items preceded by an order number beginning with DVD, are digital video products. These DVDs are designed to play on DVD movie players. They can also be played on computers using DVD playback software.

Items preceded by OVT are Online Video Training products. These digital movies are designed for playback on computers / networks – depending on the license type you purchase. OVT-(S) is Site License (single facility). OVT-(G) is a Global License (multi-site).

Training Certification is an ideal way to train and verify competency in key subject areas, like ESD Control, Lead Free Soldering, Component ID, Safety, and Acceptance Standards. These multi-media based resources include everything a trainer needs to instruct, test and certify that their operators have completed a course successfully. All students with a grade of 70% or better on the final examinations qualify for IPC Training Certification. Please see the sample certificate (.pdf) which allows for user-customization of student name, instructor, and date of completion. There is no expiration / renewal date for any Training Certification program, and they may be administered by anyone in your company.

As an operator-level credential, Training Certification demonstrates mastery of the specific theory and knowledge contained in the course, as evidence of competency for ISO training requirements through an industry-developed training program. Training Certification does not qualify instructors or students to teach or interpret IPC specifications, or assure proficiency in the physical skills required to create products to the requirements of IPC specifications.

Like all IPC Video / DVD, OVT and Computer-Based (CD) training programs, Training Certification is available for unlimited students per the particular licensing structure chosen. These media-based training solutions are created in cooperation with volunteer industry experts – to ensure technical accuracy – and are free from commercial bias.
