what components are used for wire harnesses

Wires and Cables: The Lifelines of Connectivity

At the heart of any wire harness are the wires and cables. Pinnacle Harnesses employs a diverse range of high-quality wires, each tailored to specific applications. Copper remains the primary choice for its excellent conductivity and malleability. Our engineers carefully select wire gauges and insulation materials to meet the unique demands of different industries, ensuring optimal performance and longevity.

Connectors: Bridging the Gap with Precision

Connectors act as the bridges that link various components within a wire harness. Pinnacle Harnesses utilises a variety of connectors, including but not limited to, crimp connectors, solder connectors, and insulation displacement connectors. These connectors are chosen based on factors such as your application, environment, and desired reliability. Pinnacle’s commitment to precision ensures that each connector is seamlessly integrated, minimising signal loss and ensuring a robust connection.

Terminals: The Final Touch of Perfection

Terminals serve as the endpoints of wires within a harness, facilitating the connection to other components. Pinnacle Harnesses takes great care in selecting terminals that match the specific needs of the application. From simple ring terminals to more complex pin terminals, each is chosen for its durability, conductivity, and compatibility with the overall harness design.

Sleeving and Tubing: Protecting the Core

To safeguard the wires and cables from environmental factors such as heat, moisture, and abrasion, Pinnacle Harnesses incorporates sleeving and tubing into their designs. These protective layers not only enhance the overall durability of the harness but also contribute to the organisation and neatness of the assembly. Materials like heat-shrinkable tubing and braided sleeving are strategically chosen based on the intended application and environmental conditions.

Tape and Labels: Adding an Organisational Layer

In the world of wire harnesses, organisation is key. Pinnacle Harnesses incorporates tapes and labels to identify and secure the components within the harness. These labels not only provide crucial information about the wires and their functions but also aid in troubleshooting and maintenance. Pinnacle ensures that these labels are designed to withstand the rigours of the environment they operate in, ensuring longevity and clarity of information.

Moulding and Conduit: Forming a Protective Shell

For applications where additional protection is necessary, Pinnacle Harnesses employs moulding and conduit solutions. Moulding involves encapsulating the harness in a protective material, offering resistance against chemicals, vibrations, and impact. Conduit, on the other hand, provides a flexible yet robust outer layer, ideal for applications where the harness may be exposed to harsh conditions or frequent movements.

Shielding: Guarding Against Electromagnetic Interference

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) can significantly impact the performance of electronic systems. Pinnacle Harnesses incorporates shielding solutions to guard against EMI, utilising materials such as foil or braided shields. These shields act as barriers, preventing external electromagnetic signals from interfering with the signals carried by the wires within the harness.
