The essential difference between a wire harness and a cable assembly is their physical attributes and function. A wire harness offers a cover that encases single cables, usually from the same material utilized in a cable assembly. One can see and remove an individual cable from a wire harness. In comparison, a cable assembly has multiple wires but is bundled together by a single external sleeve. It comes as a only one thick wire.
Wire harnesses provide minimal protection for wires. Its purpose is to organize wires and cables efficiently. It cannot shield them from extreme temperatures or friction between one another. They are fundamentally used for indoor use.
Cable assemblies are used for severe environmental conditions or extreme temperature changes. In addition, many heavy industries such as medical, military, aerospace, and construction generally use cable assemblies in their manufacturing processes. They need the cable assembly to protect areas such as the electric flow in its wires or cables. They are the perfect for high-speed data transfers.
It really varies based on industry, but our most common real-world applications are:
Military & Defense- Radios and Communication equipment, Tanks, Humvees, Control Panels for Test Equipment, Aircraft, Heavy Equipment etc.
Aerospace- Satellites, Rovers, Rockets, Guidance Systems, Shuttles, Remote Audio/Video.
Telecommunications- Ethernet and Coax Cables, Outdoor Wireless and Cellular Antennea Arrays.
Medical- MRI Machines, X-Ray, Surgical Robots etc.
Technology- Cables for Circuit Board Connectivity, Storage Devices etc.
Manufacturing- Assemblies for Temp/Humidity Control, Automated Lighting, Drive Motors, Sensors etc.
