Electric Wire for Automobiles
Wiring harnesses consist of various wires bundled together, with each individual wire responsible for carrying the electric signals and energy used in starting the engine, lights, meters, navigation systems, power windows and doors, and other devices in the vehicle.
There are many different types of wire used in a wiring harness. Some varieties are more flexible, more heat resistant or colder resistant, and others can be smaller for easier routing or larger for products requiring more current.
The car industry is a demanding world for electric cables. For this reason, the component materials are generated or chosen with care. But what are these materials? Electric cables, of which increasing numbers are found in today’s vehicles, have to deal with many constraints: vibration, heat, hydrocarbons, etc. The component materials also have to correspond to problems of weight reduction and cost paring.
Car and truck cables are designed to protect wires from heat, chemical fluids and vibrations, consists of various polymer bases (PVC, polypropylene, polyethylene, chlorinated polymers among others), some of which are halogen free. Depending on the applications for which they are intended, the wires are wrapped in insulation, resisting temperature to a varying scale (classes varying from T2 to T61). Polyesters in classes T3 or T4 are generally used for preventing risks of abrasion. Cables for batteries, electric or hybrid vehicles are designed on the basic criteria of thermal resistance and flexibility.
In addition to the copper traditionally used for automobile electric wires now a days. It transpires that copper and magnesium alloys (CuMg) are tougher and allow smaller diameters to be used². Using these alloys therefore reduces harness weights.
Being lighter than copper, and far cheaper, aluminum is a material which is arousing much interest among manufacturers and the users. Its application to automobile harnesses began with battery cables and is now continuing through various design and application projects for the vehicle, based on smaller section aluminum alloy wires. However, for equipment traction, this material requires larger sections than copper for similar mechanical performance. The gain in weight is therefore accompanied by a loss in the aluminum cable flexibility, compensated for by the use of new specially made insulators.
Your automotives cable harnessing is as important as you take care of wheels, interiors and body of the vehicle. Sell auto parts is the best place you find solutions of cable harnessing for your car/truck.
