Deembrittlement Verification Test

1998-12-30
HISTORICAL
USCAR7
This standard outlines test methods and practices which can detect embrittlement of steel parts. It is a process control or referee verification test. The risk of embrittlement of steel is minimized by using best practices in the finishing/coating process. One such practice is described in SAE/USCAR-5, Avoidance of Hydrogen Embrittlement of Steel.

STANDARD FOR CIGAR LIGHTERS & POWER OUTLETS

1997-11-01
HISTORICAL
USCAR4
This standard is intended to cover cigar or cigarette lighters as well as power outlets based on the form and dimensions of the cigar lighter. This standard is a full performance specification, it includes dimensional and operational parameters as well as performance characteristics which must be met when submitting a cigar lighter assembly or power outlet assembly for production approval. This standard constitutes an acceptance specification for a surface mounted, front-loaded cigar lighter or power outlet.

Test Procedure for Electrical Ground Attachments

2003-09-18
CURRENT
USCAR26
This test procedure is intended to evaluate and/or validate electrical ground schemes for use on the body or chassis. There are two classes based on the expected environmental conditions. Exposed Grounds can be located anywhere in the vehicle (except on the powertrain) and is the class for which most schemes should be tested. Unexposed Grounds can only be used in the passenger compartment or trunk and as such are special cases. This procedure as written is not intended for testing powertrain grounds where high temperatures and vibration levels may be encountered. These situations may require modifications to this procedure and are left to the Responsible Engineer to determine. This specification does not specifically address validation of terminal to wire electrical crimps. Crimps are tested to SAE/USCAR-21

HISTORICAL
USCAR23
This International Standard specifies the dimensions, test methods, and requirements for single core 60 V cables intended for use in road vehicle applications where the nominal system voltage is ≤ (60 V DC or 25 V AC). It also specifies additional test methods and/or requirements for 600 V cables intended for use in road vehicle applications where the nominal system voltage is > (60 V DC or 25 V AC) to ≤ (600 V DC or 600 V AC). It also applies to individual cores in multi-core cables. See ISO 6722 for “Temperature Class Ratings”.

Torque-Tension Testing and Evaluation of Fastener Finishes

1998-12-30
HISTORICAL
USCAR11
This standard provides a test method for determining the torque-tension relationship of a fastener finish as applied to a surrogate screw for the purpose of measuring the frictional characteristic of the fastener finish. The results obtained by this test shall be used as a process control attribute of the fastener finish and shall not be utilized for specific applications.

Test for Evaluating the Torque-Tension Relationship of Both External and Internal Metric Threaded Fasteners

2004-05-14
HISTORICAL
USCAR10-1
This standard provides a test method for determining the torque-tension relationship of both external and internal metric threaded fasteners for the purpose of measuring the frictional characteristics of the threaded fasteners. The results obtained by this test are relevant to the test conditions only and should not be utilized for specific applications. The test shall consist of a single installation of the sample fastener in a test fixture using a constant speed power tool. The test sample shall be assembled onto an appropriate mating test part (i.e., a nut will be tested by being driven onto a test screw). The test sample shall be driven against a test washer as the bearing surface.

SPECIFICATION FOR TESTING AUTOMOTIVE LED MODULES

2020-08-03
CURRENT
USCAR33-1
This specification is a general level subsystem light source specification that establishes test requirements of light emitting diode (LED) components and modules for use in automotive lighting systems. The completed test data from this test specification is intended to be provided to the OEM by the Tier 1 lamp set maker as part of the lamp assembly PPAP. Re-testing shall be required if any portion of the approved LED module experiences a design, manufacturing, or component change. This document shall be applied to systems that meet the requirements for design, performance, and validation established by government standards. The LED module is defined as the LED devices and any electronics required to properly energize the LEDs using a vehicle electrical power system along with any associated electrical wiring, connectors, and thermal management system. Samples shall be tested as a subsystem and considered one test sample for the entire test sequence.
