Custom Wire Harness for the Pump Manufacturing Industry

A customer in the pump manufacturing industry approached Consolidated Electronic Wire & Cable in need of a custom wire harness.

pump-manufacturing-portfolio

This harness was to be used in four different production pumps to turn on flow sensors within the pumps. We reviewed the client’s drawing and specifications then modified the wire harness assembly specifications based on our mutual assessment. We manufactured the assemblies using the Artos CR-11 automated processing machine.

The stainless steel mounting plate of the wire harness had an 18 gauge thickness and measured 87mm long and 43.43mm wide. The 18 AWG SJT power cord length was 2,500mm long and had a voltage rating of 125 Volts AC. We used UL 1015 style wire for the assembly lead wires. Other product components included a snap switch, circuit breaker, and terminals.

We worked within a tolerance of ±.10mm on the mounting plate and we performed a series of extremely thorough tests before delivering the harness to the client. These tests included insulation resistance, heat resistance, migration, and more.

Once assured that the Consolidated custom cable wire harness was up to our standard we shipped it to the customer. Our customer was extremely satisfied with Consolidated’s service and the finished product.
