Abstract : Methods of improving insulation resistance during moisture resistance tests were determined. Specimens consisted of 4-351 and 4-1068 connectors and various types of wires and various treatments on 4-035 wire. The insulation resistance between each wire and all other wires and shell was measured once each working day until either the test was stopped as a result of low insulation resistance or until the test had been in progress for 21 days. The insulation resistances of 4-351 and 4-1068 connectors can be improved during moisture resistance tests by wiring the specimens with either Teflon-insulated wire, wire with a Teflon outer jacket, or MIL-W-5274A wire.
