A cable harness, also known as a wiring harness, cable assembly, wiring assembly or wiring loom, is an assembly of cables or wires which transmit signals or electrical power. The cables are bound together by straps, cable ties, cable lacing, sleeves, electrical tape, conduit, a weave of extruded string, or a combination thereof. Cable harnesses are commonly used in motor vehicles, as well as construction machinery.
Cable harnesses provide several advantages over loose wires and cables. For example, many aircraft, motor vehicles and spacecraft contain many masses of wires which would stretch over several kilometres if fully extended. By binding the many wires and cables into a cable harness, the wires and cables can be better secured against the adverse effects of vibrations, abrasions, and moisture.
By constricting the wires into a non-flexing bundle, usage of space is optimised, and the risk of a short circuits is decreased. Since the installer has only one harness to install (as opposed to multiple wires), installation time is reduced and the process can be easily standardized. Binding the wires into a flame – retardant sleeve also lowers the risk of electrical fires. For more information, click here to get in touch with a member of our team.
