Inside the Custom Wire Harness Design Considerations Ebook, we cover the types electrical power and data signals being passed along the cable, choosing an appropriate wire type, cable lengths and tolerances, and more.
Designing a custom wire harness involves careful consideration of various key factors to ensure optimal performance, reliability, and compatibility over the life of the project. These factors apply during the prototyping phase, and especially again when a build moves to production as quantities could reach millions of pieces per year.
If a cable design is inadequate, the impact could be enormous incurring both schedule delays and reduced profitability, or even worse, liability questions and system damage. No matter the industry, cables play a vital role in system performance, and before designing any new cable, engineers need to simply understand the application and select components carefully based on their rated voltage, temperature, and jacket material needs.
At their core, all a wire or cable actually does is pass electrons from one device to another, and because of this fact, there are a lot of cable types that could work for your project. But the key is that not all cables will perform as intended for the life of the project, and selecting the right bulk wire, connector, and supplier early in the process will absolutely reduce program issues in the future.
By following all of the steps outlined in this Ebook, designers and engineers can streamline the cable design process and achieve successful outcomes.
