Cable Harnessing is an assembly of wires or cables that transmit signals, information or operating currents. These assemblies can be made up using all different types of cables, including connection and control, flexible robotic cables, data cables and many more.
The cables can be bound together using various different methods such as cable ties, cable lacing, cable straps, sleeving, conduit, electrical tape, a weave of extruded string, or a mixture of these. Cable harnessing is utilised in many industries such as construction, automobile and aviation.
For example, in a typical aeroplane, there could be many, many kilometres of cables. By constricting the wires into a usable bundle, you instantly save space, decrease the risk of a short and get a tidier and more organised cable layout. Wires and cables which are assembled always benefit from a decrease in the risk of many negative occurrences, such as excessive vibrations, abrasions or moisture.
When assembling the various cables or wires it is important that they do not reduce their efficiencies in any way - all high quality cabling will ensure efficiency. Occasionally, cable connectors are used inside cable assemblies to provide extra structure. Connectors can prevent straining on the cables and will improve flexibility.
Cable harnesses is also known by many other industry terminologies such as wire harness, wiring assembly, cable assembly or wiring loom.
