What are wire harnesses and cable assemblies?

Wire harnesses and cable assemblies are used in various electronic equipment, including computers, home entertainment systems, and automobiles. They are also highly used in industrial equipment, such as automated and manual machines used in manufacturing or assembly processes.

Wire harnesses and cable assemblies consist of insulated wires that are bundled together, often with a secondary protective covering. These bundles of wires are used to connect electronic components, such as circuit boards or switches. Wire harnesses and cable assemblies can be custom-made for a specific piece of equipment or mass-produced for use in general-purpose electronics.

Benefits of wire harness & cable assembly

Many industries utilize electrical devices, so it’s crucial to maintain the organization of the wires and cables attached to these devices with the help of wire harnesses and cable assemblies.

Wire harness manufacturers like Salt Lake Cable & Harness play a crucial part by providing the different industries with custom customer make-to-print wire and cable harness assemblies that can be used to save time and provide better organization.

Wire and cable harness assemblies offer many other benefits, such as:

  • Reduced cable installation costs: You can also use this method to save on the installation costs of cables, as it can be done more efficiently with the help of cable harnesses and assemblies.
  • Improved system performance & reliability: When you use cable assemblies and wire harnesses, it can help improve the system’s performance and reliability. It can provide better protection to the wires against external factors, like harsh environments.
  • Weight & space savings: Cable harnesses and assemblies can also help save on weight and space as it helps to keep the cables more organized.
  • Improved safety: Instead of jumbled-up cables in one stack, they are protected with different wiring arrangements. Open wires are a risk factor. Inspection becomes easier when you use wire and cable harness assemblies.

Difference between a cable assembly & wire harness

While cable assemblies and wire harnesses are interchangeably used, there is a difference between the two. These differences are:

Overmolded Cable

  • Environment: Cable assemblies and wire harnesses are used in different environments. For instance, cable assemblies are primarily used to guard all cables against extreme conditions, so they are ideal for outdoor use. On the other hand, wire harnesses are used to organize wires and provide minimal protection.
  • Cost: Wire harnesses are low-cost electrical solutions, while cable assemblies are more expensive due to the added protection they offer.
  • Purpose: The primary purpose of wire harnesses is to Organize individual wires into a single assembly to efficiently transmit power and electrical signals.


Meanwhile, cable assemblies offer the same purpose as wiring harnesses. But in addition, they can protect the cable or wiring from wear and tear and other environmental conditions.
