What Are Cable Assemblies?

A cable assembly is a rubber, vinyl or thermoplastic jacket that wraps around and encases a group of wires or cables. While a wire harness exposes separated wires, a cable assembly covers and provides them with added protection. A cable assembly essentially works as a single unit, while each wire in a wire harness works independently. 

The outer jacket protects the cables from environmental factors like fire and moisture while protecting people from the electricity running within. In addition to defending the wires against environmental factors, the industrial-grade jacket also protects them from chemical substances and more general wear and tear. 

Features and Uses

Because there are numerous applications for cable assemblies, they are available in various colors, lengths and sizes. The jacket material is also customizable depending on the cables’ location and the materials they’ll interact with.

Cable assemblies are durable, long-lasting and structured, making them ideal for a number of industrial uses, including:

  • – Protecting wires and cables from extreme weather, corrosive materials and wear. 
  • – Organizing wires and cables for a more efficient workday and increased ease of use. 
  • – Using cables for outdoor applications where extra protection is essential.
  • – Keeping contractors and technicians safe from electrical currents.

Though countless businesses harness the benefits of cable assemblies for their operations, many users still have questions about their design, uses and specifications. 

How Many Wires Are in a Cable Assembly?

There’s no set amount of wires in a cable assembly, which means you can choose the size that best suits your needs. The wires within the assembly depend entirely on your specific application and what you require them to transmit.

Are Cable Assemblies Safe for Outdoor Use?

Cable assemblies are ideal for outdoor use, as the outer jacket protects cables and wires from extreme temperatures and weather conditions. 

Is a Cable Assembly the Same as a Wire Harness? 

No, a cable assembly and a wire harness are two different things. A cable assembly consists of an outer jacket that encloses the wires and cables to form one unit. A wire harness exposes individually separated wires for various purposes.
