Automotive Wire Harness Outer Wrapping and Cable Protection Selection
1. Outer wrapping protection of engine wiring harness
The engine wiring harness is installed in the engine cabin, the temperature is high, the vibration is large, and the working environment is harsh, so it is wrapped with:
1.1 Corrugated Pipes Corrugated pipes with high flame retardancy, corrosion resistance and high mechanical strength, such as PA, PPMOD corrugated pipes.1.2 PVC tape PVC Tape is used on the periphery. It can be fully wrapped to provide complete sealing. Usually, it needs PVC Tape with a high temperature resistance of 105 ℃ or 125 ℃.1.3 Cloth Tape and PVC pipes High-performance polyester cloth tape can be used, and some branches can also be used with high-temperature-resistant PVC pipes considering the bending direction of space.
2. Outer wrapping protection of passenger compartment wiring harness
The working environment here is also relatively poor. The wiring harness runs from the upper part of the left front wheel along with the front frame to the upper part of the right front wheel, especially in rainy and snowy weather and bad roads, which are greatly affected by the environment. Most of the branches also choose cable wrapping materials with good corrosion-resistant and mechanical strength, such as：
2.1 PP and PA Corrugated Pipes2.2 PVC PipeSome branches are wrapped with PVC pipes due to the bending of the wires and the layout of the car body, such as ABS wheel speed sensors and other branches.2.3 Cloth TapePart of the main wire harness is used cloth tape wrapping with good wear resistance and high temperature resistance.2.4 Car GrommetsThe transition area of the wiring harness from the front cabin through the sheet metal hole to the cab needs to be protected by car grommets to avoid scratching or abrasion of the wiring harness from the sheet metal hole, and the car grommets have a good waterproof effect, preventing rainwater from flowing into the cab along with the wiring harness.
3. Outer wrapping protection of instrument wiring harness
The instrument wiring harness is fixed under the instrument panel, so the working space is small. Because there are many instruments wiring harnesses and control functions here, it is determined that there are many branches of the instrument wiring harness, and the wiring harness is relatively compact as a whole. However, the environment here is relatively good. So,
3.1 PVC TapePVC tape can be used for full wrapping or sparse wrapping.3.2 PVC PipeSome branches need to be wrapped with PVC pipes, such as accelerator pedals, airbag branches, etc.3.3 Sponge TapeThe branch of the wire harness connected to the audio function is generally wrapped with sponge tape, which has a good shock absorption effect and ensures good signal transmission.3.4 Fleece Wire Harness Tapesome parts are used for the purpose of noise reduction effect, and fleece wire harness tape is required.
4. Outer wrapping protection of door wire harness
This wire harness is installed in the 4 doors.Although the space is small, it is protected by an interior panel. It can be fully wrapped or sparsely wrapped with tape, and some branches can be wrapped with industrial plastic sheets or PVC pipes. The transition area of the wiring harness from the 4-door sheet metal hole to the interior also needs to be protected by rubber parts with excellent toughness.
5. Outer wrapping protection of chassis and roof wire harness
Most of the main harnesses in these two areas will be installed in the body sheet metal holes withcable ties or body clips, and have interior panel protection, so the working environment is good.These harnesses can be directly wrapped with tape, soft and easy to install.According to the specific branch direction and fixing method, the branch can be fully wrapped or sparsely wrapped with tape or wrapped with braided sleeving or protected by PVC pipe; if some parts rub against the car body due to shaking, PVC pipe can also be used for protection.
6. Outer wrapping protection of Battery wiring harness
This wire harness is generally short and connected to the battery. It is usually wrapped with a corrugated tube, and the external PVC tape is fully wrapped.The battery terminals of the positive and negative electrodes generally need to be protected with a dustproof rubber cap.
7. Outer wrapping protection of airbag wiring harness
The airbag wiring harness is a key part of the automobile wiring harness, and its production and processing are particularly important.The outer protection of the wiring harness generally needs to be a yellow corrugated pipe, yellow PVC pipe and wrapped with yellow tape, which plays a good warning role.
8. Outer wrapping protection of branch wiring harness
For the convenience of assembly, some wire harness branches need to be bundled withmasking tape (paper tape)in advance; some important parts should be wrapped withfoam padsto prevent collision and damage during transportation, and be bundled with masking tape. Masking tape has good wearability, and the assembly worker can easily and quickly tear off the tape.
