Cable Harness Assembly

Cable Assemblies include one or more wires that run together in a single sleeve with a connector or plug on each end.  Cable assemblies could be groups of wires or cables bundled together.  They are wrapped in a thermoplastic or vinyl sleeve, cable assemblies are ideal for directing groups of wires and cables around obstacles.

Cable assemblies are designed to perform specific functions that is determined by the plugs, terminals, and connectors that are found on each end.  They are used in most electronic applications, everything from flat panel displays to the automotive electronic system to integrated cockpit systems to simple LED lighted clothing, costumes and accessories.

What Do You Use Cable Assemblies For?

Cable assemblies intersect or interconnect different circuits or electrical paths, so they work together to transmit signals or power.  They usually only have two ends to connect point A to point B.

Ethernet Cable HarnessFor example, ethernet cable assemblies are designed to provide service supporting bandwidth speeds up to 10 Gigabit Ethernet, such as large data centers, military field units, and medical facilities.  For those applications that require a lightweight, smaller assembly that can transmit clearly and rapidly over great distances, support greater bandwidths, with high voltage isolation, then fiber optic cable assemblies would meet those needs.  A few of the industries that utilize fiber optic cable assemblies, include aerospace, automotive, industrial, medical, and military applications.

Cable harnesses are more complex in nature and may require different machinery and tools to be consistent with production. Creating slits and windows in cables demand specialized equipment to handle the various conductors within the insulation.  We

Wire Harness

It is important to understand that a wire harness is different than a cable harness.  A wire is a single conductor, while cables are two or more wires that are insulated being wrapped in a larger jacket. These two technologies demand their own set of unique tools, fixtures, and machinery to help reduce production costs. Knowing exactly what type of product being used is crucial to perfectly create your designs.

Wire harnesses generally do not need much to work with and is generally an inexpensive and cost-efficient way for many people to solve their electrical needs. With a single machine, one can increase their production capabilities because of the relative simplicity of wires in general.

A wire harness is a method that incorporates several point-to-point cable assemblies together into one conclusive assembly.  They are generally held together using cable ties or some form of protective sleeve used to protect the wires or cables from environmental conditions like moisture, heat or friction, and to organize the different breakouts for easy routing through a system or box build.

What Can Wire Harnesses be Used For?

Though you might confuse a wire harness for a cable assembly, there is one main difference and that is a wire harnesses usually contains several ends or breakouts, running in different directions, serving multiple functions with multiple terminations on each breakout.

A custom wire harness can be used in durable goods like household appliances, in and around engines of all kinds – automobiles, buses, locomotives, trucks, and even planes.  Electronic equipment, construction machinery, industrial equipment, HVAC products all use wire harnesses as well.
