IPC/WHMA-A-620 Manual


Updated to Revision D

IPC/WHMA-A-620D is the only industry-consensus standard for Requirements and Acceptance of Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies.

IPC/WHMA-A-620D describes materials, methods, tests and acceptance criteria for producing crimped, mechanically secured and soldered interconnections and the related assembly activities associated with cable and harness assemblies.

IPC/WHMA-A-620D was developed by The Electronics Industry, IPC and the Wire Harness Manufacturers Association (WHMA) (An affiliate of IPC).

This is a significant update, adding lead free acceptance criteria, a new chapter devoted to electrical and mechanical testing, and enhanced criteria for molding and splicing. This Revision has 420 full-colour pages including pictures and illustrations. Readability and usability were improved based on user feedback from the original release.

Included in the 19 chapters are 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 cables, ties/lacing, shielding and assembly requirements. Released January 2020.
