Abstract

Automation of harness manufacture, e.g. for copier wiring, is facilitated by using small, cheap distribution boards (A-F) to provide branching, commoning and simple electronic functions. The remaining harnessing consists of jumpers (Jl-J5) i.e. sets of wires that just link one board with another. Electro-mechanical components (1-5) with flying leads are connected directly to the boards where power is distributed and all signals are brought together to one main connector board (A). The boards are made by a die-stamped method, staked automatically with 0.045 inch square pins, and then flow-soldered.
