This document gives specific and measurable design criteria to be applied at a design review prior to tooling. The specification is formatted as a checklist to aid in its use. The requirements do not apply in all situations so engineering judgment must be used. This is a specification for design criteria; applicable performance specifications (USCAR-2, etc.) must still be performed

USCAR44
This specification describes a method and acceptance criteria for testing automotive wire harness retainer clips. Retainer clips are plastic parts that hold a wire harness or electrical connector in a specific position. Typical plastic retainers work by having a set of "branches" that can be inserted into a hole sized to be easy to install but provide acceptable retention. This specification tests retainer clips for mechanical retention when exposed to the mechanical and environmental stresses typically found in automotive applications over a 15-year service life. This specification has several test options to allow the test to match to the expected service conditions. The variability of applications typically arises a) from different ambient temperatures near the clip, different proximity to automotive fluids, different exposure to standing water or water spray and different thicknesses of the holes that the clip is inserted into.

1.0 SCOPE 1. This document contains procedures for testing performance of SMB-style electrical terminals, connectors and components for coaxial cable connection systems intended for road vehicle applications. These are often called FAKRA II designs. This specification does not apply to the Non RF portion of a Hybrid RF connection system. 2. The intent of this specification is to qualify sealed and unsealed RF connectors that operate at frequencies from DC to 6 GHz. The characteristic impedance of the SMB/FAKRA connection system is 50 ohms however this specification does not exclude the use of these RF connectors on non-50 ohm cables or systems. 3. This specification does not apply to single conductor wire or twisted pair connection systems. 4. This specification (along with SAE/USCAR 18) is designed to provide the mechanical and electrical data required to insure that assemblies from various manufacturers will perform reliably in actual conditions.

USCAR18-4
This document is a supplement to SAE/USCAR 17 and is intended to give recommended usages for one and two-way RF connectors and dimensional requirements for 2-way RF connectors and hybrid (RF & DC power) connectors which are not currently specified elsewhere. The radio frequency (RF) connector interface specified herein is suited for unsealed and sealed automobile applications up to 6 GHz and is intended for in-line, board mount, device mount, straight or angled applications. Dimensional requirements are specified in this document to ensure interchangeability. Compliance with the dimensional requirements of this specification will not guarantee interoperability between different suppliers mating connectors. It is the supplier responsibility to ensure RF performance requirements are met with other suppliers mating connectors. Performance requirements are specified in SAE/USCAR-2, and in SAE/USCAR-17.

USCAR38-1
This specification defines test methods and performance criteria for evaluating ultrasonically welded wire-to-terminal metallurgical bonds. The examples used are specific to the linear weld type of process equipment. USCAR-38 is not applicable for “Splice Welding”. The specification is applicable to wire-on-pad configurations with a typical weld shown in Figure 1. This test specification subjects parts under test to environmental exposures to simulate a lifetime of field exposure for a road vehicle. Exposures called-out in this specification include Thermal Shock, Temperature Humidity Cycling and mechanical abuse. This test specification is intended to evaluate the strength and performance of the interface between wires to an electrical terminal. Validation of the performance of the Terminal is a separate task and can be accomplished using a component validation test such as SAE/USCAR-2, which evaluates whether the entire connection system is acceptable.

This document describes the assessment methods and physical requirements associated with the manual handling of carts and dollies, specific to material handling systems. All possible designs and applications could not be anticipated in creating these guidelines. Where there are questions of adherence to this document, such as use of an “off-the shelf” design, always consult the responsible Ergonomics Department. Force guidelines were primarily developed referencing the push/pull psychophysical Snook data contained in A Guide to Manual Materials Handling (second edition) by Mital, Nicholson and Ayoub (NY: Taylor & Francis, 1997). The force guidelines accommodate 75% of female capabilities and 99% of male capabilities. Factors that were included in the established guideline include: push / pull distances, vertical hand height, horizontal hand height, frequency and wheel / castor alignment and load rating. These factors were used to develop a conservative force guideline.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: In any intended vehicle application, if the products covered by this specification are, or may be, subjected to conditions beyond those described in this document, they must pass special tests simulating the actual conditions to be encountered before they can be considered acceptable for actual vehicle application. Products certified by their supplier as having passed specific applicable portions of this specification are not to be used in applications where conditions may exceed those for which the product has been satisfactorily tested. The Authorized Person is the final authority as to what tests are to be performed on his or her parts and for what purpose these tests are required. He or she is also the final authority for resolving any questions related to testing to this specification and to authorizing any deviations to the equipment or procedures contained in this specification. Any such deviation must be documented and included in the final test report.
