Many components, such as sensors, motors, blowers, etc., are interfaced to machine harnessing by soldering short lengths of wire to the internal component leads and terminating the leadwires with a connector. The solder joints are usually done in "pigtail" fashion rather than on posts. The soldering is usually a hand operation and mechnical strain relieving is frequently inadequate.
