Stage of wire harness design

Wire harness is wide applicated in human life. When we produce and design, there are some stages to keep it works well.

1. Specify the characteristics

With knowing the purpose of the wire harness, we make decision for its characteristics, For example, specifications will be provided on conductor sizes, conductor type, insulation material, etc. and manufacturers have to produce accordingly.For example, specifications will be provided on conductor sizes, conductor type, insulation material, etc. and manufacturers have to produce accordingly.

2. Crimp connectors

The connector crimped to the wire is important too. When connected, the pull test and continuity test  are mandatory.

3. Insulation and safty

Ensuring the safety and durability of the harness is an important stage in the process of wire harness design. Industries have extreme working conditions and wires are generally exposed to a lot of external factors such as abrasion, vibration, UV rays, shock and moisture in these working conditions. However, they can be protected from these factors for a long time, provided they are properly insulated. At this stage, all the necessary steps needed to ensure the safety of the wire harness are carried out.

4. Substitution

Sometimes is lack or short of the right material, but we can use the replacement or equivalent parts.

5. Testing

Lastly, before the wire harness is released to the market for sales, the finished product has to be tested for its design efficiency, transmission capability, durability, elasticity, insulation etc. While making these tests, one might uncover serious issues like crosstalk, signal/power interference, faulty grounding etc.
