Experience the one-stop Elite advantage

When it comes to the accurate and repeatable evaluation of electrical connector performance, Elite has the equipment and expertise to provide the results. Elite can comprehensively test the connector assembly, cable/connector interface and connector/contact interface to meet a variety of industry specifications, such as USCAR2, USCAR21, GMW 3191, MIL-STD-1344A (EIA-364), IEC 60512, and many others. Our in-house machine shop can also design and fabricate custom fixtures and force application tools to support testing.
