Cable and Connectors

An electrical cable is an assembly of one or more wires running side by side or in bundle, which carries electric current.

A cable assembly is the composition of one or more electrical cables and their corresponding connectors. A cable assembly is not necessarily suitable for connecting two devices. But it is a partial product (e.g. to soldered onto a printed circuit board with a connector mounted to the housing). Cable assemblies can also take the form of a cable tree. Or cable harness design allows connecting many terminals together.

Ribbon Cable – Useful when many wires are required. This type of cable can easily flex. And also has good design to handle low-level voltages.

New Cable and Connectors:

  • Aesthetically pleasing
  • Automotive industry grade
  • Sealed connector system
  • Easier connection for factory and field
  • Repeated manual dis-connection and re-connection
  • No need for special tools for new system
  • Supports take apart machines, supports water box removal, supports unit bus troubleshooting circuit breakdown
  • Has plug to flat wire adapters available for new LLIDS with plugs to connect to old comm. bus. Or, old LLIDS can be connected to new comm. bus.
  • OK to paint
  • As with the existing IPC system there are proper techniques to follow:
  • Do not leave unused female or male plugs on harness; use correct piece.
  • Do not cut off unused lugs. An unused plug means you did not select the right parts.
  • Do not tie wrap over the plug latch as this could allow plugs to separate.
  • Do not attempt to repair a plug, connector parts are not available. Therefore, only replacement cable assemblies are available.
