Products enter this phase if the customer has hired Thomas Instrumentation to install their systems in the final product enclosure. This step occurs once the board, cabling, and any other necessary items have been fully assembled, QC’d, and tested. Our assemblers begin by mounting the PCB to the enclosure with appropriate mounting hardware taking care not to short out the board. Next they attach the wiring harness, make sure to create a good systems ground, zip-tie the wires for cleanliness, add strain-relief, etc. Once everything is carefully installed, the enclosure is closed and put through a final quick test before shipping to the customer. Our assemblers enjoy seeing the completed project as we typically only ever see the board.
