Electronic Cable Assembly

What is an Electronic Cable Assembly?

An Electronic Cable Assembly is a set of cables arranged in a string formation for transmitting energy (operating currents) or information signals. Binding the cables together are cable ties, clamps, sleeves, cable lacing, conduit, electrical tape, an extruded string weave or some combination of these. Other names for an Electronic Cable Assembly include: cable harness, multicore, wiring harness, and wiring loom.

Benefits of an Electronic Cable Assembly

Since the cables are bound together in an Electronic Cable Assembly, they are less prone to the effects of moisture, abrasions, and vibrations. The wires are constricted into a tight bundle which allows them make efficient use of space. Furthermore, the risk of an electrical short is reduced by an Electronic Cable Assembly. A flame-retardant sleeve may be applied which decreases the risk of an electrical fire.

An Electronic Cable Assembly is also advantageous from the standpoint of expediting installation times for complex wiring configurations, as a result of only one harness needing to be installed (versus numerous wires).

Applications of an Electronic Cable Assembly

An Electronic Cable Assembly are used in a variety of commercial applications. Sound engineering (pro audio) and pro video professionals can benefit greatly from such a wiring harness. Set up and tear down for remote applications can be very time consuming, but are both greatly reduced by the use of an Electronic Cable Assembly.

Vast arrays of stage and studio applications require the use of complex wiring setups, all of which may use Electronic Cable Assembly configurations for simplification, safety, and organizational purposes. Networking setups in commercial facilities, telecommunications, and other industries may also find an Electronic Cable Assembly to be of great value.
