Cable and Connectors

An electrical cable is an assembly of one or more wires running side by side or bundled, which is used to carry 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 can be a partial product (e.g. to be 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, used to connect many terminals together.

Ribbon cable – Useful when many wires are required. This type of cable can easily flex, and it is designed 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 allowed
  • No special tools required with 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, piece parts are not available; only replacement cable assemblies are available, as listed in this literature.
