For this test, contacts are removed and crimped to a wire and then reinstalled. An initial measurement of the axial location is made with a 2-pound axial load, a specified weight is suspended freely from the contact, and a monitoring circuit connected that senses discontinuities. The connectors are then placed within an oven at elevated temperature and held for 1,000 hours. Upon completion and at room temperature, the axial location is re-measured with the same 2-pound axial load for any discrepancies.
