“Performance and Quality
mean the most to us!”

SURTEC has long been considered a highly qualified and reliable supplier by its customers and our performance is difficult to beat! ...

Quality products are extremely important to us. From the initial development to final shipment we start with quality in mind. We take many steps at each stage in the process of bringing a product to production to make sure that we meet our goal for a high quality and high performance product.

  • Designed in Quality:

    Our engineers design the products to be as simple and easy to manufacture as possible. This initial step in the process helps to keep the product from becoming too complex which can make maintaining quality difficult.
  • Production Quality:

    During production we continuously monitor a variety of factors to ensure that the products are being manufactured properly and that the design specifications are being met. ...
    From incoming material inspections to in-process inspections to final goods inspection we continuously monitor the entire production process to ensure that the product meets the design specifications. This helps to ensure that the product will function properly for our customers and last a long time when in use in the field.
  • Third Party Quality Assurance:

    SURTEC has also added third party testing laboratories to our Quality process. This provides an outside check on our internal testing to provide even more reliability in our process and in our product.

Durability Tester

Following the TIA/EIA-570-B
and ISO/IEC-60603-7 standards.
Insertion 6P6C - 200 times.
For 8P8C

Durability Tester

Insertion testing to the L1 durability level – 750 Times
Insertion testing to the L2 durability level – 2500 Times
We use this machine to test the durability of our connections. The machine inserts a plug into a jack for the specified number of times and then we can examine the contacts and make sure that they comply with the standards noted above.

RoHS Tester

Used for identification and analysis of metal alloys in compliance testing for RoHS regulations.

RoHS Tester

This machine allows us to inspect metal alloys to ensure their compliance with the RoHS standards. This is to make sure that we do not ship any products that have any of the substances prohibited by the RoHS standards.

Coating Thickness X-Ray Analyzer

Inspecting the coating and plating thickness of Copper, Nickel and Gold for compliance with the TIA-968-A standard. This machine is used to test the thickness of copper coating on Printed Circuit Boards and the plating thickness on our contacts to ensure that they comply with the 50 micro inch plating called for in the TIA standard.

Cyclic Damp Heat Test

With this piece of test equipment we can conduct the tests required to ensure that our products comply with the standards - especially those in the IEC 60068-2-30 and specifically the Cyclic Damp Heat Test. This test determines the suitability of components for use under conditions of high humidity, combined with cyclic temperature changes, which produce condensation on the surface of the components. In addition this machine can also be used to do environmental testing on other components that require this type of testing. It can be programmed via a computer and USB interface for test programs required by virtually any environmental test sequence. It is self-calibrating and has a wet and dry bulb temperature sensor in order to provide automatic compensation and to improve the precision of the testing. The temperature settings can be varied from 10 C to 85 C and the humidity from 10% to 98%. It is also environmentally friendly in that it uses 80% less water than previous models and uses significantly less power than other models – 45% less the previous version and up to 70% less than some competitor’s chambers.
