Welcome to the first installment of our two-part webinar series that zeroes in on the logical side of wire harness design basics. In the initial stage of the engineering process, we develop a system based on specific functions and signals. This crucial step lays the groundwork for the wiring diagram we create next.
Subsequently, after completing the functional design, we assign components to these functions. Moreover, this assignment dictates the types of connections we will use. Furthermore, we also import relevant data from a PCB layout to enrich our design.
Additionally, the webinar will delve into the complexities of using plugs and mating connectors. These intricate components come with a variety of additional parts. For instance, we will also guide you through selecting crimp parts and tailoring them according to the wire cross-sections in the design.
Lastly, to wrap up the logical part of the design process, we use topology and wiring paths to allocate the correct wires and cables to the harness. This final step ensures a functional and manufacturing-optimized design.
In summary, this webinar aims to equip engineers, whether experienced or new, with valuable insights into the logic of wire harness design basics.
