What is a Wire Harness Assembly? (Sometimes called a cable)
The primary function of a wire harness assembly is to solve issues within electrical systems related to electrical requirements and geometric limitations. They provide physical support for a grouping of cables and wires installed in a specific space. Wire harnesses are largely used only for organizational purposes in applications with less demanding requirements. They typically aren’t suitable for outdoor use or use in environments with harmful environmental risks.
Sometimes called a cable or wiring loom, a harness assembly arranges groups of wires and/or cables into a single unit for protection and organization with various different terminals and connectors attached, that are formed in shape or layout that routes the connectors to the various connection points of an assembly.
A wire harness provides a low-cost electrical solution designed to organize electrical wiring systems.
Maintaining required lengths and orientations of wires and cables are an essential part to facilitate a quicker and easier installation. Assemblies may include a multitude of cable or wire constructions, sizes, colors, and materials all used according to the specified application.
A harness assembly typically uses sleeved wires and/or multi-conductor cables held together by ty wraps or tubing which protects and organizes the bundled wire/cables. Most applications also require unique terminations like plug or socket arrangements attached to the wires. Given the number of potential variables involved, all wire harnesses are customized for their intended operating environment.
Harness Assembly Uses
The primary use of harness assemblies relates to timesaving efforts in mass production where a machine or component assembly repetition is an essential part of unit manufacturing. Some common uses of cable harness assemblies include:
- Grouping wires together to keep them organized.
- Saving time while attaching the wires in the given assembly.
- Grouping/organizing internal wires in computers, industrial equipment, appliances, automobiles, aircraft, and other electrical systems.
- Reducing space requirements for wiring in tight quarters.
