Keeping It All Together – Wire and Cabling Harnesses

Aug 26, 2014

Wires and cable harnesses help the robotic systems organize and protect their plugs and ports. The wires run from several different areas of the robot to the controller and back again, so keeping things organized is hugely beneficial. Containing cords and wires will decrease the wear and tear of your wires and increase the overall lifespan.


Robot­ic sys­tems have wires and cables that run from sev­er­al dif­fer­ent areas of the robot to the con­troller and back again. By using wiring and cabling har­ness­es, com­pa­nies can group these cables and wires in a way that allows there to be sev­er­al large ports or plugs for a set of wiring, as opposed to hav­ing to plug each wire or cable into its own spe­cif­ic port.

Sev­er­al dif­fer­ent types of elec­tron­ics use wire and cable har­ness­es, includ­ing indus­tri­al automa­tion, aero­space tech­nol­o­gy, com­put­ers, and even fit­ness equip­ment like tread­mills and ellip­ti­cal train­ers. Just like their robot­ic cousins, these elec­tron­ics are all com­posed of sev­er­al types of cables and wires that need to be har­nessed in a way that allows for easy and effec­tive assem­bly and repair.

So, why are har­ness­es so impor­tant for wires and cabling, espe­cial­ly in robot­ics? Well, the answer is pret­ty sim­ple – it cuts down on wear and tear of the cables and wires, and allows for easy access and repair. Wires that are not kept togeth­er can go astray and break or be worn down eas­i­er, which can lead to robot sys­tem mal­func­tion and pos­si­ble pro­duc­tion slow­down or shut down. By using wiring har­ness­es, these wires are kept togeth­er in a cer­tain area, free of the wear and tear they may encounter oth­er­wise. This cuts down on main­te­nance costs and increas­es the longevi­ty of the robot­ic systems.
