Mil-Std-810 Sample Test Report

17 December 2013 Written by 
Published in Military

This sample report shows the results of the most relevant cable-related test protocols found in MIL-Std-810.  The results are taken from actual tests done on a representative sample of a C&M Mil-Grade COTS assembly.  The tests were performed by C&M, or by an authorized testing laboratory.

Performance tests include:

  • Temperature cycling.
  • Dust and water ingress.
  • Tension @ angles.
  • Compression.
  • Flex bend and torsion.
  • Shock.
  • Vibration.
  • High and low temperature performance.
