Vehicle electrical system faults are often traced to problems at the cable entry points of electrical connectors. Harnessflex connector interfaces are designed to protect against the high pressure wash-down, excessive cable strain and mechanical abrasion identified as the principal causes. Variety, flexibility and assembly speed are inherent in all Harnessflex fittings.
Quality and Standards
Manufacturing is controlled in accordance with BS EN ISO 9001 whilst ongoing testing and approval to international standards; e.g. UL recognition, TUV and LCIE, provides any additional confidence required to specify appropriate Harnessflex products across the widest variety of automotive applications including hazardous or aggressive environments. Conduit has the following approvals:
Ford flammability specification for conduit
French automotive conduit specification
American electrical conduit specification
All components comply with End of Life Vehicle (ELV) directive EU2000/53//EC. Harnessflex also comply to ISO14001 - Environmental Standard
Harnessflex works closely with many blue chip companies in the development of protection for electrical connectors (a critical area of an engine harness) Our experienced internal design team use the latest 3D CAD modelling software to produce various concepts for customer approval. Once a design is selected, a rapid prototype of the interface can be supplied to enable a pre-production harness to be assembled. The prototypes parts can be used for validation purposes, due to the close approximation of properties of the material used in the prototyping process and Polymide 6.6 used in our injection moulded components. With Harnessflex's history of connector interface design and our understanding of customers requirements, we are well placed to produce bespoke designs to integrate any electrical connector into a harness design.
Hints & Tips
1). Interfaces can be used in areas where electrical connectors are vulnerable to high pressure washing.
2). Our interfaces offer strain relief to crimped contacts.
3). When our 90° swivel elbows are used with interfaces they allow the harness to self level.
4). Using our Part No: CI-MF-90 in addition to a standard 90° swivel fitting, a 180° swivel bend is possible.
