Cabeamento e Chicote Elétrico

Cabling and Electrical Harness

A harness has a wide variety of cables and each of them is responsible for managing and distributing a part of the automobile's energy. As an example, a popular car has 400 cables, while a  premium one has 800.

The difference comes from the amount of equipment installed in the car. The more modern the car, the more drivers will be needed for all systems to work perfectly. In general, a car has 700 meters of cable.

The harness is also separated by colors that are determined according to the assemblers, which serve to identify the function of that harness.

Automation of repetitive tasks

Find design flaws early in the early stages

Manage complexity

With several project automation tools, it is possible to automatically estimate the amount of wires, cables and insulators, create purchase order tables, create visual aids for the operator, among others.

Simulations during design allow errors in dimensioning components and connections to be found in their initial stages. Thus, they reduce the need to build prototypes, costs and development time.

Due to the increasing number of electrical sensors and actuators in vehicles, the complexity, weight and cost of cabling projects is increasing. Also, by consumer demand, the need for mass customization of the automotive production line was presented, several cabling options are designed for each additional set. Eventually, the costs of customizing the cabling project can be higher than making a few complete harnesses that meet several sets of options.

Complete simulation software . Simcenter's 3D acoustic modules provide the capabilities needed to evaluate radiated noise, including capturing the effect of encapsulations with sound treatments.
