If you’re not entirely familiar with what a wiring harness is, you’re not alone! We’re here to give you the inside scoop on what a wire harness does, where it is used, and how a custom wiring harness assembly might fit the scope of your electrical project better than taking a one-size-fits-all approach. Let’s dive in!
What is a Wiring Harness?
First and foremost, we should probably talk about what a wiring harness is. Virtually anything with a complex electrical system is likely going to incorporate a wire harness or cable assembly. The purpose of a wiring harness assembly is to organize and protect the multitude of electrical cables involved in an electrical system. Simply put, it’s a bundle of cables and wires, along with components designed to sheathe and organize them. A custom wiring harness assembly can substantially improve an electrical system’s efficiency since it is specifically designed for that particular application.
Where is a wire harness assembly used?
Wire harnesses are used in a variety of industries including medical, industrial manufacturing, municipalities and more. Wherever you find electrical equipment, there is likely a wiring harness assembly at work. Using a custom wiring harness assembly for your electrical system can help ensure that you have exactly what you need to fit your specific requirements, ultimately enhancing your project in the long run.
Medical Use of Wiring Harness
Integration of wire harness assemblies into devices used in doctors offices and hospitals arguably make modern medical care possible. Because of the variety in applications, sizes and uses, wire harnesses used in the medical field come in all different sizes. These wire harnesses also need to be bio sensitive and in compliance with FDA regulations.
Wire Harnesses in Manufacturing
Stray wires are a significant safety hazard in a manufacturing environment. However, automated and robotic production and assembly lines require complex wiring and cabling systems. Wire harnesses ensure connectivity and properly seal cabling and wires to ensure production is safe and optimal.
