In this video, iCONN Systems tests one of its cable assemblies by challenging its strength. 500 pounds of weight pull at the connector without affecting its performance.
The pull force test verifies that the connector/cable assembly can withstand abuse. In this test, a custom connector that needed to survive in applications is used. The cable assembly must be able to pull up a device that weighs up to 300 lbs. iCONN designs cables with strength members that attach to connector ends to help with these applications. It designs the coupling mechanisms to have enough material to withstand extremely heavy weights.
The test shown is a straight pull test, meaning a consistent load.
