Wiring Harness

The conductors of this wiring harness are extensible and can be branched off the main strand at random points, so that this harness is suitable for different localities.

The wiring harness consists of several conductors 1 strung together in the form of flat strips which are spirally wound, zigzagged or folded, so that they can be extended to about 3 to 4 times their length. Conductors 1 are wires covered with an insulating sheath. The ends 2 of the wires are not insulated to permit electrical connection to terminals. For identification, the insulations of conductors 1 are differently colored.

Conductors 1 are held together by several cross-ties 3. Cross-ties 3 are adhesive tapes or readily detachable length-adjustable plastic tapes, allowing individual conductors 1 to be branched off the strand at random points and the remaining conductors 1 to be held together by cross-ties 3. Cross-ties 3 may also take the form of single links connected to each other via press fasteners, or of plastic strips linked with the individual conductors 1 via easily removable welds.
