Interconnects used in automotive testing processes endure the rugged conditions of life on the road, before a car is even assembled. Modular rack and panel connectors offer durability, flexibility, and dependability under test conditions.

Auto buyers expect new cars to provide a smoother, quieter, and easier driving experience while also providing greater safety and less environmental impact. Connected technologies make all these things possible, with innovations such as engine control modules, anti-lock braking, automatic braking, lane-keeping systems, electronic transmission controls, dynamic cruise control, airbag systems, navigation, infotainment, and even autonomous driving features adding to the complexity of modern vehicles. To ensure customer confidence in these technologies — and to achieve the required certifications that support them — electronic systems in new car models must endure a rigorous and aggressive automotive testing and validation regime.
